"3 frogs are sitting on a fence. 1 decides to get down. How many frogs are still on the fence?"
It's the last of this combination for now that tells us we have the opportunity to change our surroundings, our situations, or ourselves right now.
So often, however, instead of jumping on the bandwagon, we're waiting for it to mysteriously happen so that all conditions are perfect, or for a sign to be written across the sky announcing it's ok to do it now.
When do we ever create seamless change? Only in faery tales (and if you've read the Brothers Grimm, you'll know they didn't either).
We also may feel that if we "make a mistake" there is this giant entity in the heavens just waiting to bestow monstrous punishment upon our heads. Do you really believe that God is looking for the opportunity to punish you if you paint the room blue instead of green or whether you're buying this house or the one across the road?
"God dwells within me, as me."
WE are creating our own reality. If you've been procrastinating on something you want and you know deep down it's a good thing to do, begin today. Just like the Fool Card in Tarot, just expect that there will be bumps along the way in anything we do and that you'll weather them.
By the way, the answer to the question above was 3. If one only decides to do something, he hasn't done it yet.
