seek no longer: creation is your only purpose

There comes a time when it is no longer enough to seek out the transformative life.

There comes a time to listen deeply and to say Yes! to the faintest inklings of your heart.

That is the time when you become a creator in your own right. When you answer the Call without reservation and with fulsome heart.

It may not be convenient or practical. It may make no sense to your family or friends. Yet if you have stepped – however hesitantly – onto the byway of your true destiny, every door will open and you will know that you have arrived.

Your God will greet you at the threshold. You will embrace and be embraced. You will feel the soft flutter of wings about your face.

It will matter not whether you know exactly what you are to do or how you are to do it. It will matter not whether money awaits you. It will matter not if your cupboard is bare; your clothes threadworn; your pockets brimming with emptiness.

You will begin anyway.

You will tremble as an utterly remarkable sense of belonging echoes into the deepest chambers of your heart. An unfamiliar feeling will wash over you, and before you recognize that grace surrounds you, you may wonder if you are dreaming.

You are not dreaming.

You will feel responsible, yet not burdened. Wildly passionate, yet fully grounded. Support will swoop in from every direction and you will fly even though your feet remain firmly rooted on the Earth.

Seek no longer: creation is your only purpose. Complete your unfinished business and prepare to begin anew. Prepare for something far more glorious than you have allowed yourself to imagine. Vaster than you have allowed yourself to dream.

You are no longer dreaming.

Your time has come and you may hesitate as fear clutches at your throat. You will wonder if your breath has stopped completely, as doubt and fear race helter-skelter through your body. Try as you might, you will forget your original instructions and the box they came in. You may feel dazed and confused — unsure of who you have been and who you are becoming.

You will begin anyway.

You may need to crawl until you walk, but you will begin. As you do, you will begin to remember precisely what you forgot. And why.

And once you begin, you will seek no more.

  2. Rachel…..
    Thank you for visiting my Blog. I am honored to post words from your book WORDS OF WISDOM for WOMEN and excited that you would take the time to leave me a comment. I have the book and read it often. I just went to your Blog and read a few posts ~ I must return to it and read further. You are blessed to have the ability to write such beautiful and inspirational words. I just started my Blog in December (jumped in without knowing what direction I was going to go with it) and I have found it to be not only fun, but a calming outlet.
    Thank you, again, Rachel. I will start to visit your Blog often now that I am aware of it.
