All of us wish life was always smooth and went the way we hoped. Who doesn’t want everything to go right, to have abundance of health, happiness, relationships, family, friends and ample resources not to have to worry about things, Who doesn’t want their efforts to achieve things to go smoothly.
Well, as you have guessed, life rarely happens the way we plan it. The old joke is, “Man plans, God laughs.”
In truth, the Divine plan is to have us struggle to achieve things and to overcome our limitations. Even when things are horribly challenging, ultimately they are for our good.
Sometimes we are blessed to be given the clarity – such as when one is fired and has a tough time, but ultimately end up in a much more rewarding position -- and other times we never understand why something happened. Our lack of understanding does not mean it wasn’t for our good. It just means that there are some things we were just not meant to understand.
The definition of anxiety is when you are not on the correct path that your soul wants you to be on. The challenge is that most of us are only remotely connected to our souls. Effectively, our souls are hidden from us, and our goal in life is to reconnect. Often the challenges we face in life are wake up calls to reconnect. So the next time something challenging happens, ask yourself (again and again):
1. Why is this happening?
2. What should I learn from this?
3. What do I need to improve in my life?
4. How can I connect more to my soul, which is hidden?
Try doing this for a week and your entire outlook on life will change...and don’t be surprised by the answers
Wishing you all great clarity in your life – which is one of the greatest blessings you can receive.
