Over the past month or so, I’ve been working with the concept of assuming the perfection of everything. Several weeks ago, I received a call from a good friend (someone I thoroughly enjoy) saying they would be coming through town and wanted to get together. My first thought was “Oh darn it!”. Just the day before, I had firmed up plans to meet another friend out-of-town on that very day. I felt a pull in my heart as I wished I had not made the previous plan. I put the phone down, and my thoughts went to, “If she had only called a day earlier, or was I hasty in making that first plan?..” but as I thought these things, my solar plexus felt tight and uncomfortable.
I started slowly repeating to myself, “This must be perfect” and as I did, I could feel my energy align and smooth out. I’m not sure why this is perfect, (I said that too, along with, “Show me the perfection in this.”) but claiming the perfection in the situation, helped me feel the perfection of it (even when I couldn’t understand it with my conscious mind) and get it out of my head, and the ping-pong match that can happen in there, when I over-think things.
I could also feel that it wasn’t right (for me) to change my plan, so I had to assume that everything, for everyone involved, was working out for the good of all.
Life is for us, conspiring to bless us, has our best interest in Mind,….like a billion gears silently moving, rotating, dovetailing, in mind-boggling perfection, and we are as intimate a part of this Energy, God, Source, Life Force, Love, as we can be.
Life is moving me. Life is breathing me. I can trust this Unknowable part of myself to guide, direct and support me for the highest and best. I am right where I need to be, and I can rest in this.
Over this weekend, why not claim the perfection of everything and see what happens?!
