Everyone Has limitations. We all acknowledge what our own limits are every day that we choose to remain in our habitual patterns of behavior.
In my own study confronting what my limited ways of thinking are I discovered that though I have had many experiences that have shown me what I am capable of, I still hold onto the frame of mind that is doubt. My own definition of doubt is 'that which I do not conceive as a possible reality for myself."
If you too struggle with doubt of who you really are or what you are capable of read on.
I have many different tools, techniques, and opportunities to practice what I have learned so that I can have the things I want in life. However, despite the amount of abundance I see around me, my mind has a habit of looking to what is lacking or telling me that what I accomplish or send energy to is some kind of waste of time. I doubt that I have the energy to accomplish the tasks I want to complete. I doubt the kind of future I want to live in is possible. In the past one of my doubts was that there was even any type of God or divine consciousness in the universe. However, This is no longer a doubt of mine. I do not seek proof of God working behind the veil any longer. This is because I have had many experiences that have brought me outside of my typical reality. (I have practiced deep meditation for over 3 years now)
When I look down to the perfection of the fashioning of this body, or I look at the living beauty found in world of natural ecological life, or when I use my mind in such a way Visualizing, Concentrating on desires, Intuitively seeking that which I am curious about. This process, the act of creation through thought - through only these things I know the workings of intelligence and higher power. God is real, for I can feel this power directly present in my soul. I want you to know this too, someday, and there is no hurry. I believe, everyone comes to this realization in time.
In my metaphysical study and pursuit, the more I discover and learn from the school of Metaphysics and my own journey the more the entire picture of my life in this world, makes sense to me. So why do I still have this lingering doubt? “It’s a test” I remember jotting this down in a notebook, after I had several synchronicities occur in the same week. At the time I felt then that each of life’s choices was some kind of test. You see a homeless man ask you for money- the test is to feel yourself as valuable and able to give, without ever lessening what you have to give. Your car breaks down, but you ignored the warning signs of it driving differently or sounds that it wasn't making before. The test is how you maintain your vehicle and tool for moving in the world. If your viewpoint is that every life experience has a meaning, then you can recognize, constantly what it is you are supposed to be learning.
I have heard many times the comparison that this life is like a classroom. Only now in my life, I feel like it’s not only a test anymore. Now it’s a real world, real life type of situation where it is the moment to use what is necessary. Class is almost over and now you are the creator of your own life. Still, I am doubting that I actually have that creative kind of power. Action in spite of limitations is what I practice now. I don’t stop taking action, I continue practicing. Even When I am depressed, any action is better than none. Even just singing or reading, or talking to a friend. Any action that goes against the dread of limiting thoughts is where my power begins.
The limitation says that what I desire or want is not a possibility. The Creator in me knows the highest probability of causing a desired outcome is to put energy into motion, that without this action and directing thoughts, that there won’t be any action, there won't be any better life for me or for the world, so still it is better to try and fail than to give up at any point. When a situation seems unthinkably impossible you say good because I am the unthinkable impossibility! When a circumstance tells you that only the hand of God could change things you say: "Well it's a good thing I have a personal relationship with God! (God meaning the minds of all understanding of creation throughout the world [ knowing all ; never judging ; unfathomable love, grace, power, presence] )
Thank you for reading, and I hope this gives you a little bit of hope in these most confusing of times.
