How masterful are you at stalling? Can you come up with all sorts of excuses, both lame and creative, for not completing what’s before you? Good intentions may fill your mind and a plan and time to finish the task are at hand, but somehow you drag your feet and find other things to do instead: wash the dishes, fold the laundry, run an errand. In the meantime, you are perfecting the art of the stall on the project you really do need to conclude.
There is an empowering quote that says, “I can of mine own self do nothing, the Spirit that dwells within me does the work”; however I don’t think Spirit is going to write your business proposal without your hand, heart, and brain involved. That project waiting for your attention needs your time to find completion. There aren’t two, you and the Spirit—that would be two-ness not One-ness. There is the one life force, the Divine essence, waiting to be called into action through you, as you. When you put no other power before Spirit, your stall tactics have no ability to deny the power of the presence seeking to fulfill your vision.
