One day I found myself in a circumstance that was not working the way I wanted it to and I felt deeply distressed, unable to shift it, miserable with the way it was. I was truly in the throes of craving, grasping and wanting. I felt as though I were being tortured. I was dwelling on the unmovable situation, my desire unanswered, my need unmet.
That night I was unable to sleep. It started to feel as though I was being punished. I tried to pray myself out of it. I tried to meditate. I couldn’t stop twisting and turning, trying to figure it out with my mind. Perhaps somewhere I had agreed with an idea that if life couldn’t be the way I wanted it then life would be torturous and that was what I had manifested.
The highest choice I could see was to surrender. My resistance to that surrender was causing the pain I couldn’t bear.
I had to find the way to get myself to agree to surrender.
I reminded myself of the truth — that God is good always and without fail.
Although I couldn’t see, feel or understand how my circumstances, in that moment, could possibly be for my good, I was able to remember that this situation, as it appeared, was for my highest good because it could not be otherwise. This was an opportunity to learn and grow whether I liked it or not.
I affirmed that there had to be a blessing in things being the way they were. I affirmed that I was willing to receive it with an open heart even if it wasn’t arriving in the package I would have chosen. I aspired to welcome the gift, the learning and expansion in ANY package.
Finally I moved into gratitude. I kept telling myself that I was grateful for the blessing that was surely at hand. I chose to believe that it would be revealed to me. I gave thanks to the unseen network of Divine Right Action that had brought this experience into my life. My gratitude brought healing tears. It was such a relief to move into gratitude. I began to release the pain inherent in thinking that I had somehow separated myself from the Presence, from my good.
I remembered that God loves me for real. God would never punish me. The pain was due to my limited belief that I might choose to believe that something SHOULD be different than it was. It was a great learning for me and I feel blessed to share my healing with you.
