There is a plan and it is good. It’s always been here and available to everyone.

The problem is that we aren’t looking in the right direction for the answers, the solutions, and the plan.

We can’t change the weather, and a whole lot of other things in life. We can change our attitude about it and not push against “what is”.

Feel yourself relax into a neutral place, a peaceful state of mind by gently reminding yourself that this is “what is” right now. You don’t have to like it, disagree with it, or protest against it. Let it be what it is, and the tension and reactivity lets go of you. Find something positive that feels good to you, and tune into that.

We can’t fix the hurts and pain of someone we love. We can listen with compassion and stay focused on the person we’re with.

Usually no one is asking for your advice. Even if you don’t agree with the choices they made, or see things the way they do, listen and let them talk. That’s not enabling them to be irresponsible or to sit in their victim story. They already know what they need to do to change their circumstances. They already have indicators of what it takes to turn this around for themselves. They may not be ready to go there right now. Your time and attention with them says that they and their issues are not invisible, and that you are not giving up on them.

We can’t wish away the job we hate. We can be grateful that we even have a job and a steady reliable source of income.

No matter how vivid your imagination is, and how many vision boards you have, money is not going to pour into your bank account with out any effort or responsibility on your part. So pay attention to the opportunities and offers happening around you. Be willing to ask your friends where they would work, and what they would do, if they had your skills and interests. Ask yourself what you would love to do – what would light your fire – even if you didn’t get paid to do it. That’s your passion! Then back it up a few steps and see how you might volunteer or get an entry paid position in that area. From there, your ambition and desire to be and do what you’re passionate about, will steer you in the right direction.

We can’t cancel our debts from careless spending. We can be grateful for the products and services we’ve received.

Rather than complaining about your bills, bless each person, company, resource that provided you with a product or service. As you give gratitude for what you’ve received, everything and everyone you serve will in turn gratefully pay you for what you are contributing to their lives. Step up to the challenge of living with a reasonable budget. Ask yourself what core feelings you were trying to “buy” with all these things! Was it a sense of security – freedom – happiness? Then go inside and claim that energy for yourself right now. Know that you don’t have to earn it – you already are entitled to it – allow yourself to claim it, feel it, and live in it.

There is a plan for each of us to evolve into the best version of ourselves. And we’re not alone in this journey. As Maureen Moss of The World Puja Network explains:

“Know you are LOVED. We will come through this experience together and intact. That has always been the plan. God, God’s Power, God’s Love, God’s Light has not left the ‘building.’ Go inside and see for yourself.”
