A message I just received from a friend and colleague, prompted me to write this blog. In a previous message to her, I had mentioned how my partner and I hadn’t quite nailed our niche place to settle, even after a major cross continent move over two years ago. She replied that over the past two years she has come to the conclusion that, despite her deep spiritual beliefs, the world has gone crazy. She is battling to find a reason why she is here, after all of her struggles and heartache.
So many spiritual teachings, including those found in A Course In Miracles, speak of how everything is just an illusion. How do we know what is real? How often have we have stopped to consider this? Being exposed to so much of what is going on around us, not just locally, but globally through social and other media, makes us question all the more. It makes it challenging to still feel like we are able to make a difference in the life of another human being or animal in this day and age.

Many profound spiritual teachings highlight that it’s very much a question of our own perception and awareness, for what we perceive our world to be, that would be our reality. Where we continuously place our attention will become our reality experience.
Also, if we only focus on the bad stuff and other people’s shortcomings, that is all we tend to see, but somewhere in there will be good too. It also makes dealing with others that much easier, if we try seeing the true spiritual essence of who they are. Focusing on a person’s good points will help them too. Any thoughts we put out there have an effect on everyone around us.
From personal experience, for example, I know that it helped me when I changed my expectations of a particular person. For example, I was expecting that individual to complain a lot and to be grumpy, so I tried the technique advised by Diana Cooper on one of her CDs. She explains in this recording how she was counseling a businessman once. The gentleman was at a point whereby he literally dreaded going home, because his wife would greet him with a long face, and be full of moans and groans as he entered their home after work each evening. Diana suggested that he begin shifting his expectations of his wife’s behavior, and to envision his excitement at going home to a loving, happy wife. The situation didn’t change overnight, but the client kept at it, and he reported back that the transformation after just a short period of time was pretty miraculous! It really does work – it worked for me.
Although life is a journey, we are not actually meant to constantly swim upstream and there is so much profound wisdom in those often used words: “going with the flow.” Sometimes things don’t work out exactly how and when we want them to, but in hindsight, we look back and often realize it all worked out for the best.

Try trusting the flow and go with it, rather than kicking against it. That doesn’t mean just accepting everything around you. It is possible to go with the flow, and still be in total control of your own life and destiny all at the same time.
Endeavor to make this life journey of yours exciting, full of fun, and filled with passion. Remind yourself daily that your perception creates your reality, through what you pay attention to. Make sure that what you pay attention to is worthy. Just as importantly, make sure that the reality that you create for yourself is beneficial to both yourself, the people and animal kingdom around you – in other words that your intentions are for the highest good of all.
You have no idea how powerful you can be in raising the vibration of the Earth and all in it.
