There is a divine pattern to everything each of us experience. Even if we can't see it, and most of us can't, there is a bigger picture that's being created as a result of each of our experiences.
Our lifetimes are a fleeting moment when compared against the infinite age of source energy. Our lifetimes are also one of a kind that will ever exist during the infinite age of source energy.
We are but a small part of a very large consciousness that has manifested in this physical form to live out a tiny section of the larger purpose.
That makes us, our lives, significant and insignificant all at the same time.
So in the grand scheme of things, we aren't meant to have everything.
We are, however, meant to have everything that serves the purpose of our current life.
The second sentence is a more complete and spiritually aligned version that captures the essence of the wisdom.
Let's expand on that a bit.
Everyone has seen some version of the affirmation; 'I can have everything I desire / dream of.'
It leans towards a sense that everything is accessible, it's within reach, it's ALL up for grabs. And although there is some truth to that way of thinking, it is not complete.
First of all, the part that's worth contemplating is our understanding of the word, 'everything'.
When we define 'everything' as ALL manifestations possible, there is a real danger of us going off-track.
Second, what we really want to attract into our lives should serve our life's work.
So yes, we CAN have everything but everything that's in alignment with our soul's purpose.
If we miss internalizing this crucial part, we run the risk of chasing manifestations and creations that are out of alignment. We risk spending time being frustrated and being miserable at our inability to 'get what we want'. We risk spending months or even years working without joy and ease and passion and feel like we haven't achieved anything in life.
Getting in alignment does not guarantee that everything that exists comes to you at your beck and call.
Getting in alignment guarantees ease and joy and opportunities to create a life that's in line with your purpose.
And although these might seem like the same thing on the surface, they are not. The former is an uphill struggle, the latter is not. And the main difference is that the latter is purpose-driven.
Now that we know, Happy Manifesting Everyone!
