If you are from a cold place like me sometimes it rains or it’s cloudy for a few days. The clouds are hiding the sun, we may feel as though this will not change.
When it comes to our circumstances we feel the same way. We tend to give up or give in. After a good fight to remove that circumstances from our lives, we sometimes come to terms with the fact that this is now part of our lives. This is the way we will now live our lives and we give up on seeing the sun again. At this point we of course talk about our circumstance as if it is inside of us. It usually has a large place and space in our lives, in our minds, our thinking and in our speech.
This is where I want to use the example of the clouds hiding the sun. The sun is not part of the clouds. They are in fact very far from each other and therefore, we cannot think of them as one. It may rain for a few days, but seasons change, the weather changes, everything changes and evolves. There is no way that it will rain for the rest of the lifespan of this world.
Now translate this to your situation. First of all this circumstance is not inside of you. It does affect you but it is external. This is how you start freeing yourself from it. Recognize that though you may not have the power to change an external issue, you do have power to separate yourself from it and of how much you allow it to affect you. How? By viewing it from different angles. By acknowledging that as inevitably everything evolves this will evolve too and it will be directed by your choices unto it.
Something else to point out is the importance of is educating yourself about the circumstance affecting you, it in order to make the wisest choices, so that you will have the best possible consequences.
We all go through circumstances in life, some are short term and easy to deal with, some are long term and or hard to deal with. Yet, you have more power in your choices than you know.
I pray and hope that these details, perspectives and tools will enable you to change the quality of your inner life today.
With much love,
