Surrender and grow
What would life feel like if you knew, deep down in your bones, that everything that happens to you is orchestrated specifically for your growth? If you really KNEW this, would you be upset when things don’t go your way? Would you feel the need to put up a fight against each perceived injustice? Would each illness be something to resist and eradicate post haste? Would all your struggles and hurts of the past be relegated to the “I’m trying to forget that ever happened” trash heap of the mind?
Trust that everything happens for the highest good
For me, anxiety has been the default emotion much of my life. If I wasn’t happy, I was probably feeling some amount of anxiety. I know now that I would not be anxious at all if I trusted that everything is here for my highest good. Happily, I’m here to say that it’s getting much better for me, as I process and release fear, and love my innocent and vulnerable heart. As I become more aware of how I’m held by Spirit in an embrace of love, anxiety has no hold. It’s a process of learning that I can trust in each situation.
Freedom from victimhood
The frequently asked question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?,” can be answered with another. I would ask, instead, “Why judge if what has happened is good or bad?” Do we really know, ultimately, what is good and bad for us? Haven’t the trials and tribulations in our lives been our biggest teachers? Is anything ever totally bad or totally good? When something is judged as bad or negative, does that help us deal with it better? As Matt Kahn says in his book, Whatever Arises, Love That, A Love Revolution that Begins with You, “…the heart of surrender frees you from viewing your life through the eyes of victimhood.”
