Morning Blessing 06 23 11
Your true self no more fears an unexpected change in life than water worries about how it will take the shape the glass into which it is being poured.
|Dear Beloved One,
It’s time to think about taking conscious control of unexpected changes . . .
The more we imagine a fearless life created by conditions outside of us, the more compelled we feel to try and control those same conditions. Our fear being that any change in them will return us back where we started: searching for a way to be fearless. Yet, the more we resist change, the more afraid we become of it. We find ourselves applying more and more pressure to life in order to escape the mounting pressure born of our own demands. And gradually, instead of being a vital human being — receptive and naturally responsive to any and all life-altering impressions, we become static and psychological “shut-ins” –captives of our own aversion to a fear we unconsciously create.
We do not have to remain the victims of this dark and downward trending circle of self. The truth is there is no real reason at all to resist the world as it turns. In fact, rather than fearing what cannot be foreseen, one day you will be grateful for it, and here’s why: we are not just created to go through constant change, our True Self is the changing ground of life itself. From out of its unfathomable depths pour the unseen forces that design, drive, and ultimately perfect the transformation of consciousness. Can we see how the realization of such a truth about our own higher Self would have to spell the end of fear?
Practically speaking, as our fear diminishes, our confidence increases; we grow in patience; a true optimism about life pervades everything we do, even when we run into obstacles. For us it isn’t a question if things will work out in our favor; our only wonder is when that gift will present itself. We stop running; we know now there is nowhere we have to get to — and that there is nothing for us to get away from. We are the life we want, and the Life we are is without fear because it is one with the Light.
The Universe is an absolute, sublime order that is always flowing into and out of form; revealing and concealing itself in perfect bliss. This Universe is infinite, all intelligent, and completely empowered to accomplish whatever it sets out to accomplish. And what is true of me is that I am made of this stuff; created out of the Infinite perfect Presence of Spirit, out of this One pure and perfect order, always revealing and unfolding and discovering my preexistent, inherent self. . .which is perfect in every way.
I perceive the natural harmony in every moment. I experience the flow of my life with ease and delight, moving swiftly when the currents are swift, and drifting easily when it is drifting time! I don’t get out of joint because things don’t go as I expect; I go with the flow of harmonious creation, and let that creation create in me a sense of deep and abiding ease. I don’t push the river, but let it lift me up and carry me forward. This Universe is an easy place to live in and prosper in and love in and create in, and I go about my business believing this truth with all my heart.
The natural, lawful result of this – my life works, and it works wonderfully! In what appears to be chaos, something in me perceives the order and harmony within, and trusts in that so implicitly that no storms can discourage me. The calmness of peace is mine, and so it is.
