If our relationships serve us in the way the Light intended, they become wonderful opportunities for spiritual growth and transformation. Whether or not you see its significance at the time, everything in your life happens for a reason. Although you might believe this statement intellectually, if you look honestly at your life, you'll probably find that you don't act as though a beautiful design were really behind each event. Most people think their experiences are mostly random coincidences.
However, there is no such thing as a coincidence. That being true, any challenge you encounter in life is part of a design whose intent is to help you grow and change. The more arduous the difficulty, the greater the opportunity it affords you to mend your ways in order to connect to the Light. This is true even of the worst situations. In fact, the more negativity there is in an interaction, the more potential there will be to reveal Light. Daily we should observe ourselves and notice which experiences are providing the greatest potential for transformation toward the Light? Which offer the most opportunities to reinforce your spiritual beliefs and certainties?
Look at your life, and you will see that most of the challenges you face stem from your interactions with others. Your life is all about relationships with your parents, siblings, lovers, spouses, children, grandchildren, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, colleagues, bosses, employees, the mailman, the nanny, your doctor, your gardener . . . You name it if it's part of your life, it has a relationship attached to it.
Because of the humility of the soul we are attracted to those who reveal unresolved issues in our own lives (the karma, if you will, we have come to earth to correct). This may involve: learning to make choices in your life that have the effect of clearing rather than clouding your vision, learning to become proactive instead of reactive, learning to be a sharer rather than a receiver-for-self-alone, learning to practice forgiveness and trust.
Do you see that in every relationship there are hidden opportunities to connect and use the wisdom of Spirit, especially when it comes to obtaining dramatic improvements in our intimate relationships. Life is a spiritual journey that has a marvelous objective. The purpose of our relationships is to help us reach that objectified destination. We need to learn how to look at our relationships in this way; become aware of the beautiful gifts they contain in order that we travel more quickly along our path. If our relationships serve us in the way the Light intended, they become wonderful opportunities for spiritual growth and transformation.
Let all your relationships this week reward you with Greater Consciousness,
There is One Life. That Life is the Presence of God. That Life is my life now.
I am of God -- an individualized expression of the Divine. It is natural for me
to enjoy the magnificent splendor of Infinite Nature as the common experiences
of my daily living.
The divine attributes of love and harmony come forth this day and enhance
all my relationships. Residing in the wake of this spiritual truth peace can
calm any discontent that emerges. Orienting from a peaceful center, happiness
enters and I share this joyful elation with all in my world. Spiritual wholeness
and well-being manifest as a result of my alignment with Radiant Living. I am
the energy and essence of God, which has always existed; therefore I trust
that no person can disconnect me from my Source. Even the situations and
events that appear tragic and sad are merely messages from Spirit that have
a divine purpose. I remain receptive and allow the greater good of these
scenarios to seep into my conscious awareness. I move into each day knowing
that it is a Perfect Divine Design I can let go and witness divine order come to
pass in all things that circulate within my reality.
I give thanks for this day and for the opportunity, experience, and expression
of God as Me! I give thanks for the Divine Mind as Me! I give thanks for the
Law that fulfills these intentions as stated by Me! And dearly do I give thanks
for knowing that all of this is so! And so it is. Amen.
