WHEN THINGS GO WRONG
All of us have times in our lives when everything seems to being just the opposite of what we had envisioned for ourselves. We suffer loss of some kind, we have a bout with some illness, we find we don't have enough money to pay the bills, we find our relationships going downhill, etc. Those are times when we may even question why we want to be here in the first place. My experiences have taught me that these times of suffering is not only normal it is also destined to happened. No matter how carefully we arrange things, no matter how many solid walls we erect to protect us, no matter how hard we try there will always be those "hard" times. That just comes with being human. Even though these times are very trying and most uncomfortable it is these times when we learn our most valuable lessons. The one thing I have found is that as long as I still have family and friends to help me through those tough times I will always survive and actually become a much stronger person because of the difficulties I have just been through. So I might suggest that all of us take time to cultivate our friendships and all of our family relationships so that in those times of trial and tribulation we will have those who can and will gladly help us to survive. The Science of Mind gives us this quote: Suffering may be salutary(beneficial) in that it leads us to a place where we learn that it is unnecessary!. I agree with that! But when we do find ourselves in a state of "need" or "want" maybe we should heed the advice that J. B. Goldstone once wrote. He said: "To improve our circumstances, we must first increase our knowledge and enlarge our consciousness." So today I wish you and yours all the best of everything. May your life be filled with much love, joy, peace, and contentment. If you care to right now do something nice for someone that should be a great start on making sure you will always have those who care about you when you need someone the most. Keep smiling and remember to enjoy the Moment for that is really all any of us have.
