Over the past couple of weeks, the happenings of this world really got to me. I became paralyzed with angst and fear after seeing all the violence, suffering and inhumanity that had taken place in such a short period of time. I yearned to feel better, but I was stuck in a belief that I could not feel better until the world changed. At that moment, I had a flash of insight, as I realized that the world is going to be what it is, and I was the one creating my inner turmoil, not the world.
I realized I was at a point of choice, and I could choose to think differently and feel better. This was a great relief to me, because I saw that I was in control and could change my feelings in an instant; I didn’t have to wait for the world to change in order for my inner peace to be restored. I was able to connect with Spiritual Truth, and I was reminded that what I am looking at right now in this world is just a snapshot of a bigger unfolding of Divine Right Action and Order. The fear and anxiety fell away from me as I stopped allowing my senses and my mind have their way with me and allowed the Spirit within me to flood my soul with faith, peace and love.
I realized that I can change my inner world in a heartbeat, and the outer world is just fine.
