It’s Holy Week and many people are preparing for their prospective holidays and family gatherings. I appreciate the well wishes of Happy Easter from my Jewish clients and associates as I wish Happy Holy Days to them also. I have always felt a strong connection to Passover actually, but I’ll save that for another day!
In the midst of the well wishes and spiritual blessings, I’ve been preoccupied with how things are not going as I had planned in my life. How 2020 and Corona ruined my best laid plans…, how my expectations are way off the mark and the impossibility of forging ahead, etcetera, etcetera….
After awhile, I decided that’s it! I will change my plans! I will work out something new and figure it out. I’m resilient. I am capable. Let’s gooo! However, inside I was not nearly as convinced as my “self talk”. Eventually I decided to pray. Not for a word, more lazy praying, you know, a cat nap/ prayer. I had exhausted myself with thoughts; like the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, spinning endlessly about in my head.
Instead of dozing off, a verse pops in my mind- “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin”: Matthew 6:28 KJV.
In other words, Chill. If life is in such disarray, what was my new plan going to solve?
Stay the course. Trust.
You’ve made it this far – you don’t really believe that you are all powerful, do you?
Maybe it’s me, but have you ever felt that God- Higher Consciousness tends to sarcasm when we’re feeling full of our own importance?
Snaps you right out of it.
