Manifestations don't necessarily need to take a lot of time (unless, of course, we hold strong beliefs that they must). Mostly, the time required for materialization is the time it takes us to release enough Resistance to tip the scales of accumulated vibration. If you're doing all that you can to clean up your act but are still being kept waiting, then there's a good reason for it. It's all about timing, not time. Higher Mind is "waiting" for the perfect timing when all the cooperative components--people, situations, conditions, connections--are ideally aligned.
