My gap is constantly changing, because as I am constantly creating my life, I have new dreams, goals and desires. This gap is a very good thing, because it propels me into action, it makes me stretch my inner being, it makes me grow and transform.
How large is YOUR gap? You can take baby steps or giant leaps, but whatever you choose, if you truly want to close it, then you will. And then you can desire something else, have a new dream and set another goal to create a new gap.
The more focused you stay on what you want, the closer you are to getting it. When you first begin to examine your life and start to make the first few changes in the direction you want to go, you will feel even more imbalanced, maybe even more confused than before you started the process. This is a very good sign! It means that the dismantling of the old has already started.
Let me explain.
You cannot build a new house on a piece of land that is occupied by an old structure. You first have to demolish the old building, piece by piece sometimes, shattering entire floors at other times. Next you must clear the land of all the debris and then you are ready to start digging the new foundation.
It does take time and the larger the old structure, the more time you will need to dismantle it. You might get tired of the physical labor and sometimes feel discouraged by unforeseen problems, but you would not think that the day when you get to start building your new house will never come.
The same is true about your inner self; turning away from old concepts, fears and beliefs and building a new life takes time, dedication and work.
But every single action brings you closer to where you want to be.
How do you know that it is working, that you are making progress? I’ll tell you tomorrow.
