If I am faced with a change of any kind today, I will know I am not alone. Whatever I am facing is right for Me and necessary to my well-being. Life is growth and the next stage awaits…. so if the door closes, don’t keep pulling on it and allow the window to open!
Barriers, distractions, and obstacles appear to stand in OUR way and frustrate and depress US. The knowledge that we seldom know (You don’t know until you know) and understand what is best for US. We may wonder why a door suddenly closes. Our paths are questioned only when our steps have started off OUR path. Doors do not close unless a new direction is needed, we must trust no OBSTACLE is without purpose, however baffling at the present time. Acceptance of what is will open OUR minds and hearts to the better path in OUR JOURNEY.
“In the face of an obstacle which is impossible to overcome, stubbornness is stupid.” — Simone de Beauvoir
Gratitude for what IS prepares us for the blessings meant for us around the corner. If we are still and close our eyes we can experience the present moment. When we separate from today and wait for tomorrow or next week, or next year, we are stunting our SPIRITUAL GROWTH. Life can only bless us now, ONE BREATHE AT A TIME.
Our experiences today won’t come around again–in just the same way. The people in our lives won’t say again just what they’ll say today. We shouldn’t miss out on what life offers. We can risk feeling it all, hearing it all, seeing it all.
Today I will allow my prayer and meditation to direct my efforts today. My purpose can then be fulfilled. Nobody is without a contribution to make, everyone of us is giving what we agree called upon to give when we are in the right relationship with God, who is the master artist in the design we are creating.
You can expect the unexpected in your day to day life. Pleasure and pain both share in Our lives. We often forget that Our growth comes from challenges also referred to as problems.
The past that many of US choose to hang on to stands in Our way. Many of Us needlessly spend much of Our lives fighting a poor self-image. Each moment is a new opportunity to let go of all that has trapped me in MY past. I am free.
Pain is inevitable in life. As we grow and recover, we see how much of our suffering is directly related to Our stubbornness and illusion of control. Contrary to belief suffering is not Noble, it is often plain stupid. My pain teaches me about life.
TODAY I have the opportunity to stop, look up, and be grateful for the many gifts that are mine.
