So, you see, I'm actually doing lots and lots of things ... and sometimes staying up way too late sure beats the hell out of tossing and turning all night .... and, so, I might as well do all of these many things with my eyes wide open until they beg and scream for me to please let them close ... so I can finally have a little bit of the peaceful sleep I long for.
And I'm thinking, maybe, this powerful information/realizatio...n/understanding can spur us to embrace our spiritual process for what it is: a perfectly tailored plan for our Life's ultimate correction and direction.
Every difficulty we encounter, every obstacle we need to overcome, every relationship we develop with another person ... on our own - through our personal choices .... is re-designed and re-directed specifically to help us learn the lessons we need to learn so that we can eventually fulfill our mission in this world: His mission.
All things Work for Good .... all things ... He guides us back to where He wants us and uses all things to Work for His Good whether we like it or not; understand it or not.
It follows, then, if this is indeed True, and if we truly desire to do what He brought us here to do, and if we truly desire to try to accept His will in our Lives, then we must no longer dwell upon envying (or even snubbing) the journey process of others, nor should we wish to escape (or praise) our own journey's process.
I'm starting to maybe think that everything we need to succeed in this Life is within us already ... the Holy Spirit ... if we accept it, embrace it, recognize it, and respect it.
We just need to use the spiritual tools that we have been graciously GIVEN to draw it all out, and stop doubting and/or fighting His gentle pushes toward the direction He wants us to go.
