The greatest gifts often come in very unusual packages. The most valuable paths are often surprising and circuitous. If you will but relax and allow sprit to lead, you will find that life is easier and far more interesting.
It is easier, because so much of what you struggle with is of your own making. It is more interesting, because spirit holds for you so much more than you could ever imagine. If you allow paths to open without being burdened by expectation and disappointment, who knows what wonders may unfold?
Your expectations make the passages narrow, where in fact they are wide. Your doubts and disappointments make your passage slow, where in fact everything can be accomplished in the blink of an eye. Overnight, your world can change. A chance meeting, a new love, a new opportunity to shine, exposure of your talents to new people.
To know the truth of this, all you need to do is look back. Of the truly wonderful moments of your life, how many were expected and planned? How many were sudden gifts, chance happenings, surprises? How many wonderful things appeared to be a problem at the beginning, but later became an open door through which you could walk toward the fulfillment of a dream?
Hand it over. Hand over your life to the greater connection you have with all that is, was and will be. Hand your life over to your own higher spirit, the part of you that is deeply connected with the greatest and highest, the good, the all, the one. Give over your frustrations, your anger, your struggles. Give it all over and just let it be.
And when the gifts come, open them. What could be simpler than that?
Here is a littlie prayer for today
I take a deep breath and release everything that is not now. I am now and only now, deeply into this moment. All else is gone from me. All else is released as I dip down deeply into the joy and peace of this moment.
I feel the beauty and wonder that I am. I see the doors and windows opening all around me. I feel the fresh breeze of life blowing through.
My breath is as this wind of promise, blowing through the open doors. I am one with all that is, right now, right here, just as it is, just as I am.
I am one with all. I am all. I am.
