If I know and embrace the truth that my life is unfolding exactly as it should, then no circumstance in my life is happenstance, a test, nor an attack. I embrace every step of my path. I am learning and growing in my spiritual life with every step I take. “It’s ALL good” is a truism.
Why should I be upset or fight against the circumstances of my life? Why would I label them as “bad,” “a test,” or “an attack”? Every step is a learning and growing experience. My response is the point to all of the steps of my life. It’s my response that matters. Can I live with acceptance, with joy, and continue in peaceful serenity? That is my call; that is my assignment.
Who I am and how I respond in the midst of every circumstance in my life is what is important. Keeping the focus on my own behavior – my mind and heart are called to remain at peaceful rest and trust at all times. And that is the challenge!
