I love this saying! Opportunity knocks, some say once, but wouldn’t the world be such an interesting place if we just went for the opportunities offered, whether we “feel” ready or not? Opportunity could be compared to blessings. What if we could hone our skill of seeing the blessings? We can. Look with eyes wide open to possibilities. Life becomes colorful when we see with the lens of possibility as opposed to limits.
There is a song by Sam Cooke with lyrics that say, “What a wonderful place this would be…” He was eloquently reflecting how he doesn’t remember much of the subjects he took in school, but he knows he loves a person and if the person loved him back then …”what a wonderful world place this would be.” Co-dependent? Maybe, the point being why do we feel our world won’t be wonderful unless x, y, z, or until the right job comes along, the right lover comes along, we live in the right house, or have the best granite cabinets, or the best pet, or better children? The list can be really long. Crazy when a lot of the world just wants water for the day. But that is another subject. Would it not be a great place to be because we are in the present moment? What a wonderful world this”IS.”
All around opportunities abound. Possibilities. Ask God, Spirit, creator, energy to reveal, to open our eyes to the interesting tidbits of life. There may be a grumpy person to serve in customer service jobs, or a disabled vet to take food to, or a person stranded on the side of the road, or a neighbor that needs help digging a hole to plant his new tree. Ask daily, or hourly, or three times a day, but ask to remove the cloud, the blinders and see without limits.Wear your shades, because it will be bright what is shown to us in the light! No rhyme intended. For today see opportunity.
