We celebrated Easter yesterday and although it is predominately a Christian holy day, it is recognized by many as an important aspect of the spiritual path. To some it's about Easter candy and hard-boiled eggs, to others it is a reminder that there is the promise of transformation, healing and enlightenment on our journey.
Although your journey is unique to you and cannot be experienced by anyone else, you can allow others into your life to bless you with their gifts. These gifts may take many different forms and each one, when given willingly, has its own blessing for both the giver and the recipient.
The greatest cause of misunderstanding in the world today is how people understand each other. Each of you has a unique perception and understanding of yourselves, of others and the world around you. Conflict arises when those perceptions cause you to understand one thing when someone meant something entirely different.
You ask 'why' of situations that you do not understand, where you are hurt, angry or disappointed. You ask 'why' of things that happened in the past, of things that you feel powerless about or cannot change.
There is perfection and order in every part of the Universe, including every part of your life. Nothing is random, nothing occurs by chance. Even the most chaotic and disorderly happenings are in perfection and happen according to how they are manifested and the energy they are manifested with.
Each of you is a divine powerful being whose gifts and actions have a profound effect on the energetic balance of the Universe. You each have a unique contribution to make to the planet that is reflected in the work that you do and the efforts that you make.
It’s Father’s Day in the U.S. as I write this, a day when we celebrate our relationship with our fathers. Some of us don’t have a lot to celebrate, our fathers may have been absent, unknown, or so emotionally distant that we cannot find a reason to celebrate our relationship with them.
Just because you have chosen to walk a spiritual path you will not be free from the emotions and feelings that are part of being human. You will still get angry, be annoyed with people and get frustrated. All of these emotions are normal. What changes, as you move along your spiritual path, is how you process these emotions, what you do with them and how they affect your life. They will not have the same effect on you as they once did and you will learn to choose your emotional responses to situations and even, at times, choose not to respond at all. This is when your spiritual and emotional being is in balance.
