When I have a moment of frustration, I had one this morning actually, I pause, take a deep breath, and ask myself, "what would love do here?" And then I wait for love to show me the way.
Life is much easier for me when I am focused on what IS. When I'm truthful about what is before me, even if it's not the most desirable experience, it allows me to deal with it in a real way that helps me learn from it more quickly. When I have learned the lesson, it "goes away."
And so when things arise that are not planned, I look at them and maybe roll my eyes, maybe mutter under my breath that "isn't this just dandy" and then I face the new track head on. Because the other choice is to resist what is, and that's insanity. It is there. I can't change that it is. Might as well live with it and have peace too.
There is something in each of us that is MEANT for us. Your only job is to find it and embrace it. Whatever it is, it doesn't matter. Do what you LOVE. When you do, your "job" won't be a job at all, instead it will be a gift you offer the world.
What a gift to learn something like this in a moment of frustration. It opened my eyes and my heart and opened his heart as well. When we were soft and open we were BOTH teachable and connected and it felt amazing.
Believe in the potential that exists in the "unseen" world and know that you can make that world seen if you have the courage to step outside of what you know and see and into the world of light.
Sometimes our greatest struggles teach us the most important lessons, so look for the lesson and KEEP MOVING FORWARD!
I do not have it all figured out. I am the first person to admit that I know nothing. What I understand today WILL change. For sure. That is the ONLY thing I know. I understand that the pattern has been that I ask, and I receive and I'm open and things are WAY different than I suspected or thought but the greater understanding I receive actually makes WAY more sense than what my limited perspective was understanding and the NEW greater understanding is relieving and joyful and FULL of peace and freedom!
Take a leap. Take a step. Take even just a tiny baby "scootch" toward your goal. Every tiny step is still a step forward! Forward is movement. Movement is growth. Growth is relieving and joyful after all!
*sigh* Ridiculous is the word that comes to mind. And unnecessary. And maddening. --- I need more yoga when I think about this. (serenity now!)
It is easy to go through life and to struggle and fight against all that happens. We think that when we have a flat tire we've hit a "hitch" in the plans and if we take an unknown turn we're off course. Not so. I do not believe that. I believe that we are each exactly where we're supposed to be for our greatest maximum potential for learning and growth.
The worth of a soul is not defined and counted among the "worthy" by anything that you see here in this place we call earth. The worth of a soul is not FROM here and therefore cannot be defined in earthly terms ... it is unchangeable, it is infinite, it is perfectly wholly worthy at all times, in all things, and in all places. No. Matter. What.
