Advent means “the coming.”
Advent means the state of coming into being
When something is coming we watch for it
We anticipate it
We call it forth
We bring it into manifestation
When a storm is coming we watch the clouds and the sky
Based on our experience
We look to the horizon
We feel the difference in the air
We smell the rain before it hits
We get ready to take cover
We watch and wait
For we have no idea
Despite the signs
The time of its arrival
The intensity of the experience
Or how it will affect us
For although we see it coming
It may blow around us
And never connect with us at all
Anticipation is to taste before eating
It requires that we let go of the past
and use the present
to prepare for the future.
When we anticipate we create our destiny.
What we focus on becomes our reality.
If we focus on the past it will repeat itself
In our minds and emotions
We bring it into the present
And cast its line into the future
Baited with whatever will attract
What we have in mind.
Whatever we focus on becomes all encompassing.
We surround ourselves with whatever
Will reinforce it.
We pick through options and make decisions
Based purely on that perspective.
Freedom is the ability to choose and trust
what we anticipate with our focus.
Anticipate a great day … It’s Yours!
