Creations are an unfoldment.
Creations rarely manifest instantaneously. Those that do have had
most of the unfold done in the
unseen world. In some way is it is much like the birth of a
child or the appearance of a note of music. We see the child come
into existence and hear the note. But often we fail to realize the
volume of effort that goes on in the unseen world of the womb for
nine months or the rising and falling of an unseen hammer on a piano
string before the note is heard. However, most of our creations will
grow and unfold much like that of a tree. It will grow over time and
there will be periods of rapid grown and periods of slow unfoldment.
Since we are creating something not previously seen and/or
previously experienced we really have no idea how long it may take.
We may think you are planting a flower that will grow in few months
whereas we are really planting a tree that may take years to bear
fruit. When we get what we desire quickly, there is no issue.
However, if we have to wait years and we don’t know how many years
we have to wait, it is very easy to become distracted, bored and
even lose faith. We may doubt the success they are having, or worse,
doubt our own creative ability.
We may also become extremely frustrated because of the seemingly
endless “hurry up and wait” periods that are often required for a
creative effort. This is best understood in looking at a fruit tree
that takes many years to bear fruit. Every spring there is a “hurry
up and wait” period. Spring causes a quick burst of life beginning a
new growing season. There is the growth of new foliage and it is a
time for blossoms but one finds they still have to wait several more
spring cycles before the tree is capable of bearing fruit. Since the
time to bear fruit is long and the cycles of “hurry up and wait”
frustrating, we can easily lose hope and abandon their creative
The truth we all need to face is that is that we may have asked to
create something that may take a better part of a lifetime. Many
creative endeavors are like children. They take years of nurturing
before they are strong enough to go into the world alone without the
safety and security of a nurturing parent. Being able to walk does
not mean one is knowledgeable to survive in the world. So too any
creative effort that we undertake. We need to surrender our life to
the growth cycle and process of our creation and not to what we want
