Each moment of our lives we seem to be living in anticipation.
When we are young, we are told to wait until we are older, or bigger, or in a different grade. So we wait.
When we are teens we wait for that first date, that first driver’s license, that chance to make our own mark. So we wait. We are waiting to go off to school or work. We wait.
Then we might wait for the right man, or woman. Some wait for marriage, some wait for promotions, some wait for the right job. We wait.
Some wait for that positive pregnancy test, some fear it. Nevertheless, we wait. Then we wait for the birth of a child, niece, nephew, grandchild, great grandchild. Yes, we wait.
We wait for health, money, success, courage, love, the list goes on and on. It is the nature of the human experience.
Spirit does not wait. Spirit is in the now. Spirit doesn’t see obstacles but opportunities – for growth, for good, for lessons, for forgiveness, for love.
Living in the spirit while in this human experience may be the best we can do for ourselves and our fellow travelers. We, who are all waiting, can also experience the now.
As we go out into our worlds let us be mindful of the usefulness of waiting while we live in our present moment. Go out and do good.
