Detours, challenges, and crisis, Anne, are simply covers for miracles that had no other way of reaching you.
It’s all good,
Every day I get an inspirational email from the universe. Seriously, I do. More often than not, it’s like the “universe” knows just what I’m thinking and just what to send me. Uncanny it is. I’d like to think I’m unique but roughly 400,000 people in about 200 countries get these emails too. You can sign up at www.tut.com and I think it is worth doing.
Here’s another good one from www.tut.com —
If I told you there have been no mistakes, that I understand every decision you’ve ever made, and that the challenges you’ve faced, you’ve faced for everyone, would you listen?
If I told you that what you dream of, I dream of for you, that the only things “meant to be” are what you decide upon, and that all that stands between you and the life of your dreams are the thoughts you choose to think, would you try to understand?
And if I told you that you are never alone, that there are angels who sing your name in praise, and that I couldn’t possibly be any more proud of you than I already am, would you believe me? Would you? Even if I pulled your leg, made you blush, and winked between the lines?
Then I shall… The Universe
Depending on your spiritual orientation, you might see meaning in everything, nothing or a smattering of things of your choosing. I tend to see meaning in nearly everything. That doesn’t mean I agree with everything whole cloth however. You have to take what works for you and discard the rest. As I thought about this, Louise Hay‘s Heal Your Life yellow book caught my eye perched on the bookshelf as it was. Ah yes, I thought, Louise Hay believes that dis-ease is the result of our mental patterns. “I believe we live in a ‘yes’ Universe. No matter what we choose to believe or think, the Universe always says ‘yes’ to us. If we think poverty, the Universe says yes to that. If we think prosperity, the Universe says yes to that,” she writes, explaining how we are co-creators of our own reality. I thumbed through the book again, drawn toward her list of life’s problems and their probable mental cause. “Leg(s),” it read. “Probably Cause: Carries us through life. New Thought Pattern: Life is for me.”
I never thought life was against me at any time. But I could certainly affirm more often I guess that “life is for me.” Simple.
Many years ago, I went to a psychic with a couple of girlfriends. I didn’t have a burning question at the time but I did ask, “What lessons should I have learned from burning my leg?” “There are some,” the psychic replied, “such as personal humility and compassion for others. But have you come to understand that the accident did not happen for your purposes? The accident was for your mother and the lessons she had to learn in her life.”
I was stunned. In all the years since the accident, I had never thought there might be a message or learning for anyone else than me.
And that’s what I mean about meaning. There are so many ways to look at nearly everything (if you are interested in the exploration of course). What it has meant for me ever since that day is that I look for meaning in different ways and different levels. More importantly, every time I think I’m just doing things for my independent self, I have to remember how inter-connected we all are.
