Lightning strikes the tower. The crown topples midst the fiery destruction. Two people jump from the burning building to escape peril. One has eyes faced forward, the other is looking up. Where will you look for succor when your world falls apart? Will you seek the earth or heaven? The universe deals us challenges for our growth and expansion. Sometimes these challenges are not so subtle. If you have been dealt a blow in your health, your relationships, your job, your spirits, reframe your fear and despair into one of gratitude so you can capture the lesson and the new knowledge for moving past your present predicament…forward into the light.
Perhaps there’s a snag in that great new romance. Or maybe your work partner and you are not seeing eye to eye on a particular issue. Something is in the air and it isn’t very pleasant. When the waters of emotion were flowing and all was in perfect alignment the world was rosy and happily ever after seemed more real than a fairy tale. But reality has its ups and downs and the nature of relationship is just that…relating. We need to find alignment in our misalignment. There are times when we will see the other’s point of view and perhaps that will cause us to adjust ours. And other times when we see their point of view and choose to stick with ours. This exercise is a lesson in the art of acceptance, of when to choose battles and when to raise the chalice to toast another day. This week choose to work through the challenges with the vision of a perfect union as inspiration.
