"Timing is everything," they say. But, these days, most of us have lost any natural sense of it. We are largely out of sync with nature, including our own.
In these times of accelerating Change, we can easily feel bewildered -- and have trouble managing Change -- a skill which is all about good timing. The transition to a new calendar millennium is an excellent reminder/symbol of this central human challenge.
The year 2000, reckoned according to our culture's numbering system, means nothing in and of itself. It's just a number and, considering the inaccuracy of our historical records, a fairly arbitrary one at that. Nevertheless, it packs powerful psychological impact as a symbol of Change.
It's a well-understood paradox that Change is the only constant -- the only thing we can really count on. Knowing this, doesn't it behoove us to learn how to manage the impact of Change on our lives? To learn how to consider Change as a friend rather than an enemy?
Those who understand the true use of oracle systems know that they make it easier for us to leverage "synchronicity" -- the ability to stay in sync -- with Nature or Divine Providence. This is not easy in a world that churns inventions and "news," and bombards us with distracting or irrelevant information faster and faster all the time.
Good timing comes from having an enlightened attitude, which includes remembering that no matter how speeded up it seems, Change is always cyclical. When we have confidence in our ability to roll with the ship of Change, to surf life's cyclical waves, change can actually start to feel like a friend and you get what you want -- in good time and with far less struggle and stress.
It is your destiny to have what you want, to realize your heart's desires, sooner or later. It's just a matter of timing. Desire is natural and good -- at least until we turn it into craving. Desires come to us from above. The etymology of the word itself -- "de" + "sire" = "from the heavens" -- reveals this.
Craving is an add-on to desire that turns it into a spiritual problem. Craving comes from ego's reaction to the desires that innocently arise to inspire us. Craving is the result of our ego making emotional demands on reality. It is a form of attachment to gaining something (or getting rid of something). In spite of the fact that they seem to be moving us in the right direction, craving and attachment are actually obstacles to the fulfillment of desire. They get in the way and subvert a more natural process of change and manifestation.
So, what is the secret to manifesting our desires? It's the last thing one would expect, another paradox."
