Change

We have a whole lot of complaints to make about people, places, things, institutions, organizations, systems, and even ourselves. Fair. Nothing wrong. But, what next?

Next, remember the prayer:

God give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Once understood the difference, and gathered courage, we can use our knowledge, creative imagination and resources to bring about the change we think we can.

The easiest way to bring change in the surroundings is through personal change. When we change, everything in life changes. Many find it difficult. But, it needs only two things: Intention and Determination. Rest follow.

The best way for bringing a positive change in our life, in my opinion, is to be grateful for each and everything which is of even slighest advantage, importance or good for us. Counting blessings can counter complaints. God hears the prayer of Love and Gratitude first.

Expectations

Expect your every need to be met. Expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level. – Eileen Caddy

Expectation is a word we have been trained to stay away from. It is indeed a cause of suffering in many situations. But, there was a proviso we might have forgotten to read.

Expectations of good(in our opinion) behaviour from everyone, expectation that everything in the world should be as we want, expectation that nothing will ever fail,…these are the kinds of expectations which are, in fact, bound to fail. Consequent disappointment is the cause of misery.

But, if we perceive and accept the present as good and then expect it to get better, it will get better. The problem lies in rejecting the current reality as bad and then expecting it to improve.

Expectation is not bad in itself. In fact, it is not bad at all. Resisting the present causes unhappiness.

We must expect to receive the best of everything the Universe has to offer. God awaits that expectation.

Present Truth

Past data should not be the basis of Present Truth. Data from a prior time or experience should always and only be the basis for new questions. Always the treasure should be in the question, not in the answer.- Neale Donald Walsch.

Truth needs to be deciphered. And to decipher we do not just need to analyze our experiences, we also need to question our experiences; primarily because our experiences are the direct results of our beliefs. These beliefs or the past data cannot always be the basis of our present truth.

Unfortunately, we rarely question our beliefs. Although we are facing undesirable and unwanted experiences, our beliefs are the last thing we would question. Sadly, we try to strengthen our erroneous beliefs by looking for evidence in their support. We forget that life is about creation and not discovery.

We should, therefore, reframe and rephrase the past data to create the experiences we desire. And to do this we must question the past beliefs one by one…even the subtler ones. Start this inquiry today and continue forever to be in touch with the truth…our own truth!
