Inspiration Wall: October 2010

It’s Your Move

W. H. Murray wrote the following during one of the first Himalayan expeditions:

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts initiative, (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.”

Before we can experience these unforeseen incidents and assistance we must first totally commit to our intention. We must make the first move in faith with gratitude, purpose and action. Commitment means believing in your heart of hearts that you deserve and can create your intention. Commitment is devoting oneself unreservedly, doing whatever it takes without question and doing it with an attitude of gratitude.
