One of the basic premises that we as human beings must nurture in us is that each day we grow and evolve into better people. That is why I simply love this affirmation - “Each day and in every way I am becoming better and better.”
It said that growth happens in spirals, working its way gradually into the deepest core of our beings until it finally becomes part of who we are. So very true. Now I am working at making this a part of me. Of late, the thought that comes to my mind when I really don't know what to do or what not, is this:
"If this is what God wants, then this is what I want.
Whatever God sends my way is for my ultimate good.
He has my interests at heart much more profoundly than I ever can.
Therefore I joyously accept everything that You send my way,
for all of it is an instrument of Your grace to help me void of my karma,
and move me into eternal health and happiness."
When I let go and let God, I also enjoy a huge sense of expansion and relief. I also feel good that I am aware of my thoughts and focus and there is absolutely no tension or stress. There is a shift in consciousness and it is doing me a world of good.
It is good to learn this art of living... living in the Now, the Present!! No wonder, "present" means gift ... Somebody said, yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery. Let us therefore focus on today, the present, a gift ... Better late, than never, right?
