It is obvious that all ideas brought into 3rd realm existence are borne from the mind. There they exist and through our actions are brought into reality for all to see and experience.
With the fundamental basis of divine timing it is only after we have acquired that which we have yearned for that we begin to form a clear understanding of the reasons it may have taken what felt like forever for that to be.
Perhaps we only notice things when the time comes for us to see them because we do not see with our eyes but rather our souls. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul therefore this platitude holds much water to our perception of what we envision and eventually see.
I suppose what is important is the acceptance of divine timing, the support of the process & the encouragement of what we eventually want to achieve; what we want to see come to pass.
