365 Inspirations—309: Messages

"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean."—Socrates

There was a pressure weighing down today—not only on me, but on many around me. A co-worker thought it might be atmospheric pressure. It could be a change in weather. All I know is that it was a little too much, but I made it through the day.

Now I feel like I'm coming out of a very tight space. I feel like I was squished into a small bottle and someone just popped the cork.

I'm flowing out now. The pressure is gone.

I often wonder if those moments of pressure or stress are necessary for expansion—a bit like growing pains. 

During this period of tension, I received two e-mails that opened my world a bit. I've been seeking answers and connection and maybe I've found them.

One message was an opportunity to lead a retreat in the new year and the other was from someone I've recently connected to via my blog. We are now communicating by email and I feel a connection to this person in a way I can't entirely explain. She appeared at just the right time and I find her words and comments to me to be spot on. They are exactly what I need to hear.

These two e-mails came just in time. I think that's how life is. Things come just when we are about to give up. I am now pondering new directions and new connections. I'm ready to break out of my patterns and small world. I am ready to look at things from a very different angle and direction. I'm not afraid and I know that life will lead me. I feel it.

Do you ever get signs or messages at the very moment when you think you might give up?
