There seems to be so many problems in our own lives and in the world at large. Where do we start?
Let’s not be too hard on ourselves. I’d like to suggest starting each day with a short meditation. It can be 2 – 5 minutes. Think about joining with God, the Holy Spirit or your Higher Self. ( substitute your word if necessary) Think about merging with the larger part of you. Let your Mind be still. “A tranquil mind is not a little gift.” – A Course in Miracles, M-20.4.
If you practice this form of joining in the morning it will help you come from a place of true power when confronting an issue or problem. What does that mean?
It means you have put your “Right Mind” in charge of your thoughts. Instead of responding from the ego’s reactionary state, you come from a centered, peaceful place of being – often receiving inspired guidance about how to handle a problem. It lifts the burden of deciding what to “do” all the time. Rather, you can “allow” right action or inspiration to flow through you.
This approach does not make us passive in the world or stop us from “doing” things. It simply means we’re passive to the ego and active to the Holy Spirit.
Love & blessings,
