God, what would you have me say and do today?
Be kind to yourself.
You are doing the best you can.
Have compassion for your own troubles.
Be patient, and know that
I am in the midst of them
with love and light on your behalf.
Do not get ruffled when unexpected events
challenge your peace.
Remember that you are already greatly blessed.
Facing challenges can help you grow
into a more beautiful creation.
Love your life.
Stay joyful; bear everything with humility.
Ups and downs come
like waves in the sea and
I move in them all,
working with all things for good.
Se be patient, loving and kind
as my divine work unfolds.
This was another example of a guidance becoming more meaningful and powerful as the day wore on.
Today I encountered unexpected expenses. My daughter’s car windows became inoperative-they were down,and it was raining! I also received a bill for an unexpected hike in her college tuition. Then there came a new car insurance bill. Throw in a couple more unexpected financial costs (appliance repairs) that suddenly came knocking and you get the general downpour of my day.
Of course, these aren’t earthshaking events, but they are part of the daily adventure through life’s little troubles. Navigating these choppy waves took me out of my natural rhythm,so I followed the first line of my guidance and was kind to myself. For me, it meant taking a deep breath and realizing I could get back to my work in due course. It also meant being grateful for the means to attend to these things.
Later, I decided to cook a special dinner for my wife and me. Chicken curry anyone?
And most importantly, in the midst of it all, I reminded myself that I do love my life.
