We recently discovered a fascinating series produced by the BBC. Each episode features a “genius” and they tell that person’s story. Clearly, and with historic accuracy. Which is fun.
What is less entertaining is how so many of our great thinkers have also suffered, been misinterpreted, and never lived to see their work recognized. I know there’s a plan, but it sometimes makes me sad.
Like how I can’t always enjoy sporting events because I don’t want any side to lose. I wish every player and fan could come out a winner. Is it so much to ask that we all live happily ever after?
Apparently, that’s not what we’re here for. Which, as I said, I know. But the knowing doesn’t much alleviate the struggle, some days.
Directly from the Universe, to me and you, here’s where to turn:
My mother, and niece, and I are what people call “women of strong faith” even though none of us are remotely religious. We believe, we know, we entirely feel in a spiritual way. So, when challenges arise, roadblocks appear, we seek answers.
My own recent medical and work situation has caused me to really search for meaning. It’s been difficult. Daily.
Which makes this message so much more meaningful, on a personal level, but also on a global one. We are being instructed to find our detours. Go around, move past, let go, and yes….. rise above.
To do this, we have to focus. Then, we have to walk away. We can’t spend time suffering or whining, or screaming at problems. Because in truth, there are no problems. Merely lessons that we haven’t quite figured out. Yet.
Here’s an old Doreen affirmation that I feel will help us:
My heart, my mind, my life, and everyone in it are perfectly at peace right now.
