When you are ready to make a change towards something more positive, you have to get your feet moving and become like the little penguin, Happy Feet. Take small steps and rehearse the verse “Precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little, there a little” (Isaiah 28:13).
Snails may move slowly but they are thorough and effective. They keep it going like the tortoise in Aesop’s The Tortoise and the Hare. Those who run at an amped-up pace like the hare usually deplete themselves.
They are too exhausted to be around for those important things. They may have seen a lot of things as they moved at a breakneck speed, but did they truly experience them? Was every moment truly savored or were they wondering, “What’s next?”
Slow down and smell the roses but keep moving both gently and succinctly. There are ways to let the universe know that you are ready for something new. Try moving a few pieces of furniture or fixtures around in your home and create a bit of feng shui.
It has been said that the movement of 27 items immediately brings new energy, new auras and new points of view. Wayne Dyer stated, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
While living in this society that demands instant gratification, it is crucial to take the time to become quiet. Listen to that still small voice. As you become aware of new things, jot them down. Stay open and formulate new plans of action. Then, glide forward effortlessly like a sailboat on a sunny day and rock on!
