WOW! I really like this word because I've created a new acronym for it and it means Wonder of Within. There can be no greater WOW in the world as when we've uncovered the AHA's in our lives. As painful as they are, as these AHA's come through many avenues, they are where the hidden messages lie, and where the treasure exists.
According to Pema Chodron, nothing ever goes away until it has taugh us what we need to know. Thus, when we look at this, we can "think" a thing is resolved when something materializes that is different. Yet, the Universe sets up the classroom for our learning, and when we have learned the lesson and understood the deeper message, then the materialization of a something new will be different.
When I've looked at my own life, and various stages of learning, I just got out of something temporarily. Then the message showed up again in a different form. And this gets a little exhausting....yikes!
It takes courage to be with everything in every moment uncovering the message from the symbol. For example, I'm gleaning the messages from the entire animal kingdom. They all have messages for us, and it's for our greater good to slow down and ask what message they have for us. As I've been doing it, it's been really fun. From blue jays to squirrels, they have a message. The Universe is inside us and it makes sense that everything we SEE out there is set up for us by delivering communication in various forms.
Be where you are right now, and just be with whatever you're feeling. And understand that the hidden message will be revealed, and be known.
When fear arises, press the pause button and be curious. What is presenting itself as fear is coming from the internal. Thus, it can only be resolved on the internal. There is nothing to do, only that which to know.
Enjoy your classroom and make it a fun adventure. Looking for the buried treasure can be really fun, and it's only found in the deep end :).
