We have to make clear to ourselves - what we think we are going to do with
ourselves while we are here on this planet.
Two main choices:
To attempt to be as safe, secure, predictable, approved, successful, happy,
and with as little hassle as possible,
or to discover/realise our maximum potential as the unique being we are.
(Of course it does appear also that there are in-between choices,
and there is the impression that one can go back and forth. Not so.)
99.999+ percent of people are in the first category.
In this this category no one is ever 'fulfilled.' Impossible.
The system is designed to keep us unfulfilled - to keep us moving -
towards evolving into our maximum potential.
So even though it seems we have a choice - we do not. All roads lead to
evolving. Just some are longer, and more uncomfortable than others.
In this first category we attempt to make everything 'work.'
It is good or bad, or right or wrong - never just is - as a possible
opportunity. No sense of overall perspective.
We live in the past - projected into the future.
We 'look forward to...' and are never in the actual moment, just as it is.
Apart from fleeting moments, we never feel 'safe and secure'
In the second category we are unconditionally present to each moment - just
as it is. At one and the same time, each event is complete in itself, and
part of a much bigger interconnected event. Nothing is ever more important
than this very moment. Nothing is more, or less important than anything.
"Take no thought of the morrow, let the morrow take care of itself."
Isn't that a neat saying?
In the first category life is full of 'ups and downs.'
In the second, every moment is 'perfect.'
So let us look at the situation you are describing in the terms of these two
approaches to life.
In the first approach the situation has 'to work out.'
You think you will not be happy (ever) if this situation is missed.
Not so. Remember? Look back at your life and see the situations that were
'life or death.' All gone. Insignificant. And, hopefully, you learnt
something from each one.
Look at the possibility that each event in our life is an opportunity - to
learn/evolve. The outcome is not important. We draw to ourselves situations
that will show us a part of ourselves we are not seeing clearly. Then once
we have got it, time to stop holding it, and let moving on happen.
As always, listen to the heart aspect of yourself.
The head will always lead you around in circles.
Somewhere, you 'know' exactly what is appropriate. You know that.
Let yourself live - not knowing, in ach moment. Its fun.
For sure -you will never be bored.
