FINDING JOY IN THE "PROBLEMS" OF TODAY
Have you experienced any "problems" today? If so did you just "feel" your way through it or did you try to learn something from it? I think if all of us would take the time to reflect on the problems of living in todays world, we could arrive at the point when we would actually welcome the "problems, changes" in our world with open arms.Because that is the only way we are gonna learn to be at peace with everything that happens.Within each problem lies not only a solution but also therein lies a joy that we have yet to discover. And after facing each obstacle and learning the lesson from it we will be not only a happier person but a far better one also.The following quote is from Christian Larson who states:"It is the difficult things that we meet that enable us to bring into action the greater power that is within us; difficulties therefore, are the most valued of opportunities, and if taken advantage of as such, will always be met with joy." And also from the Science of Mind comes this tidbit:Nature demands the change in order that we may advance. When the change comes, we should welcome it with a smile on the lips and a song in the heart. My hope for all of you is that the problems you encounter will be small ones and that the lessons learned from them will bring you much joy.
