The universe is no dummy, it always has the perfect lessons in mind for us and for our evolution. The lessons we are supposed to learn and grow from come before us, and when we refuse to learn them they show up again and again. When these lessons are not “learned” we continue to experience them in various ways until we do.
Lessons come in a variety of different forms: challenges, situations, or even opportunities. For example, if a situation does not work out exactly the way one had hoped, we many times assign labels of a good or bad to it. But who is to say that this current ‘negative’ situation isn’t meant to lead us down the path to grow and get to where we ought to be. Or that this current situation may have protected us from another less desirable outcome of which we may never know. None of us know the future, nor do we always know what’s in our best interest all the time. We might be intelligent but we cannot always control everything, so if we learn to let in the universal intelligence we can move through life with more ease. I believe if we let it, the universe can guide us to manifest an even more appropriate outcome then we could ever lay out in our brain or planners (for my Type As out there).
So either we can muster up enough courage and love to get through whatever shows up or we can resist it. The resistance can show up hard at times and before we fully realize it, we are in an upstream battle with life. When I find myself in a place of unease I have to remind myself to “accept what is”. We all have to get through life’s ups and downs, and we can use meditation, prayer, yoga (or whatever your practice may be) to help us accept and attune to the universal intelligence. When we accept the present moment for what it is, the weight lifts off our shoulders, the struggle disappears, and then the next steps and solutions appear as well. This technique of acceptance will be much more powerful than wishing to go back and change the past (hoping the current thing never happened) or creating anxiety about what the future holds. None of us are immune to life’s happenings, so as long as we are here why not find ways to move through our present moment with acceptance instead of resistance, allowing us to live as our highest selves.
