WE ALL LIVE IN OUR OWN SPECIALIZED WORLD specifically designed to suit what we are here to learn. This includes our individual life circumstances (arranged by us before we were born) which includes the life scenarios that will give us the best chance of furthering our growth as an ever evolving being.
So fully accept what’s happening in your life right now, no matter what it is. It’s okay that there are certain areas of your life that are not the way you’d like them to be. Stop making it a problem for yourself, it’s simply a condition in your life at the moment.
Instead, trust that it is part of a process that is getting you (though perhaps in a roundabout way) exactly where you need to go. Anytime you find yourself faced with an unexpected obstacle or problem in your life, trust that it’s ‘there for a reason’, so don’t react negatively to it. Just accept that it is part of your journey.
Unfavourable circumstances are the best opportunity to put life’s teachings into practice.
When you reach your destination, (self awareness/enlightenment/old age/physical death) and you look back at the path you’ve taken to get there, you’ll realize that without those hard times, obstacles, problems and detours, you wouldn’t have had the opportunity to learn and grow as much as you have done.
So you need to ask yourself this question, ‘Why are things happening to me the way they are? Unless you know what it is you are trying to do in your life, and unless you deeply understand the process that is required in order to do it, the assumption that, ‘everything in your life has a purpose’ is very hard to comprehend.
Seeing the perfection in every circumstance in your life is difficult, and yet it is the key to being free from struggle, suffering and shame. So take a moment right now to stop and consider something in your life that maybe frustrates, saddens or angers you. What is it for you right now? What is it that life is trying to teach you?…
Dan’s Quote: “You remain unaffected by any condition in your life
______________if you have no negative attitudes toward it.”
