Remember Things Happen For A Reason. We May Never Know the Reason, We Are Simply Asked to Believe.
Life is full of synchronous events. Sometimes we know why and sometimes we just don’t. For instance, an event cancels at the last minute you can either be angry over it or consider that there is a reason it happened. We have that choice; we have that amount of free will working with us. If you choose to be angry over it, you may miss the point and not see the bigger picture.
A better way to handle things is to just flow with them. Sometimes something happens and we get one of those Aha moments. Like “oh now I get why that happened” because if event one had not happened, event two would have occurred and we would have missed it.
It is really difficult sometimes to look at life in this manner, believe me I know! All things happen for a reason. We may not like the reason. As a matter of fact, it may be totally something we don’t want to happen, and yet, it is part of what shapes us into who we are. This is why we must be open to flow with things and believe that there is a bigger picture that we just don’t see.
So how can we even begin to do this?
First, believe that we set a plan in motion when we came into this beautiful life we are in now. We planned it and good or bad, we are in it to learn and evolve. You can either spend all your time fighting and clawing to make it what you think it should be or you can relax and accept that there is a purpose, a method to all the madness, a reason which will be revealed at some point.
Next, flow with it. When you are able to bounce back into things and flow with them you remove the possibly negative charge which will keep you blocked. When you are able to stay open to possibility, possibilities seem to open up for you.
Finally, look for those synchronous things in your life. Everything happens for a reason. Don’t ask: Why did this happen to me? Instead ask: What is this trying to tell me? How will I grow from this? What am I meant to do other than what I thought was going to happen? Questions like this lead you to opportunities to learn and grow. They help us evolve beyond our knee-jerk emotional responses into a life of possibility and growth.
