Where are you hurting today? What is the Universe trying to teach you? If you learn the lesson THIS time, there won't have to be a NEXT time.
Try to let go of them instead of holding onto them. Just acknowledge the thought and let it wash back out into the sea of the subconscious again. For five minutes, sit in this way, observing the thoughts come and go, like the tide. Be an observer without attachment. That's it! If you do this for five minutes, you've meditated for five minutes. Easy!
Calm down. There is no need to worry yourself. Take a few breaths. Be at peace. You have moved on from the dagger' blade. The wound now just needs to heal. Believe in yourself. Things are working themselves out. It takes time. Be patient. He wants to be here with you. Don’t protect everyone else at the expense of your inner peace. Your needs are important too. Look at you! Look at who you have become. That’s just it. Becoming. It is always a learning process. Things take time. Don’t be in such a hurry. Remember that the learning process brings joy too. Hardships. And joy. It will all work out. You know that. It’s the unknowing that causes anxiety. Try to remain at peace, knowing the Universe has it all under control. Whatever happens, it is exactly as it’s supposed to happen. Endure the discomfort. Suffer through it. It will be worth it at the other end. It always is. You already know that.
The Serenity Prayer says "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I CANNOT change, the courage to change the things I CAN, and the wisdom to know the difference." I was thinking about how many things we have the power to change. I cannot change other people. Sometimes I can't change certain situations. Those things I must accept.
But MY life, my behavior, my perspective, my financial situation, the people I hang out with, my education, work, the way I relate to people, my hopes and dreams??? I CAN change all those things. And if I ask my higher power for the courage to change the things I CAN, then imagine what kind of power comes into play! Not only can I make these changes, but I have all the Universe behind me. We are incredibly powerful!
I know that all things that come to me are meant for me. I will continue to pray for knowledge of my higher power's will for my life. As long as I continue to pray for a revelation of my destiny, INSTEAD of specific outcomes, then I can trust I'm on the right path.
Maybe you won't agree with me. I used to not believe it either. How could someone choose to be happy when their life is filled with misery?
I've learned over time that even in the midst of pain, there is always, always, at least one thing to be grateful for. Even if it is as simple as the fact you have shoes on your feet. Or a job. Or a friend. It may not mean that your life is exactly where you want it to be right now, but it's a start.
Focus on it. Focus on that one thing. Thank your God for it. Appreciate it. Take care of that one thing. Treasure it.
You will be amazed at how much your attitude can change when you choose to focus on the good things in your life instead of dwelling on the bad.
If you really want to be amazed, try giving something! Even if you think you have nothing to give, you do. Give your time to someone who needs a listening ear. Give a smile to someone who looks like they could use some cheer. Give a hug to someone who is in desperate need of love.
Not only can you choose to be happy, you can choose to share that happiness with others by giving it away. You are quite powerful! You just need to believe it.
I'm just a traveler, a dreamer, like you.
