What can we do right now to better the perceptions of our current situations? We could immerse ourselves in positive platitudes to convince us that things will get better. The only problem with this is that it is akin to putting perfume on garbage. When the smell of the perfume recedes the original stink of the garbage becomes prevalent again. We could break up our patterns and not think about our current situation that much by distracting ourselves from the causes of our perceptions. However, that is not dealing with the situation in an adult fashion; it is simply prolongingand masking the inevitable results. We could throw our arms up in the air and simply resolve ourselves to the way we perceive it is, take our lumps and roll up into a self-made cocoon of our mediocrity known as our ‘comfort zone’.
We do have another choice. Why don’t we make this choice? Is it because it seems too easy? Is it because our egos can’t relent to any other way of handling life? Or is it that we are too afraid to let go of our perceived control over our lives? Whichever it may be, we have another option that handles every situation in life perfectly. When we let go of our perceived control over our lives we gain extreme power to allow it to unfold perfectly in Divine order. But how can this be? Shouldn’t we have to control something in order for it to go in the direction we desire? The omniverse unfolds perfectly on its own without our helpor interference. However, we affect what goes on in the omniverse by our ‘observation’ of it simply by observing it.
Our perception of what we observe actually affects the unfolding of the omniverse. If we insist upon controlling, dominating and manipulating our environments with our ’will’, we will be resisting our alignment with Divine order. If we simply let go of what we perceive we can control and ultimately can’t control, we align ourselves with the natural order of the omniverse. The secret of fulfillment is in the act of removing your ego’s perception that it can move natural order to its benefit alone. Only when you allow the flow of the omniverse to affect everyone with what is best for them and you, will you begin to align yourself with Divine order perfectly.
Ultimately, Divine order affects natural order by moving the perceptions of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of yourself and others into alignment with the greater good for all. By allowing what is best for everyone to unfold naturally in Divine order WITHOUT our interference, we continually allow Divine order to manifest our Divine purposes in Divine order perfectly. Let go and let God. Too simple? Then keep doing what you are doing and what you don’t want to happen will. It’s that simple. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
