I had an interesting thought today as I was baking some potato chip cookies.
I have a good friend whose going through a tough time because of life challenges that her son and grandchild are going through right now.
So many people are struggling with life right now. I wonder if it would be fair to say we seem to be going through an epidemic of challenges on the planet.
I thought about all of the emails I get daily from people searching for answers which lead me to thinking about why people turn to psychics when life starts falling apart and the conclusion that came to me is that we all want to know how it’s going to turn out. We want reassurances that life is not going to change forever and that we’re going to be okay in the end.
I was thinking about my friend and what she can do for her son as he goes through his struggles and a picture came to me of watching a play. Sitting in an audience watching the characters act out their parts. And I saw a picture of the Director, sitting in his chair, intently watching the play.
I heard my inner voice say that it is important for each person to act out their own role and not let others step in and act it out for them. They signed up for the part, so let them carry it out. That life’s lessons are character builders and we all need them to grow.
It also said that the director is ALWAYS nearby, ready to give any guidance the actor needs and that we, the audience need to sit back, observe the play and ask the Director to let us know IF and WHEN our part comes up.
It’s hard for all of us to know what our role is when we are watching the people in our life suffer. Some of us jump in and try to fix it so that our loved one doesn’t have to hurt, and others avoid the whole subject so that they don’t have to get involved.
Most of us fall somewhere in the middle of those two categories, wondering what we’re supposed to do.
I asked my inner voice what I should tell my friend and I heard the words tell your friend to watch her son’s life un-fold (like a play) knowing that his soul chose to have these experiences and tell her to ask the Director to let her know when it’s time for her to step in and what is the best thing to do when she does.
I thought I’d share this with you today. It seems so simple to let others have their life challenges and grow through them but it sure isn’t easy to do it.
It is reassuring to know that the Director is always nearby, isn’t it?
I hope you’re having a nice mellow Sunday. The snow is melting here in the Twin Cities and it’s in the 50’s. The chipmunks are running around which is a great sign that spring is here.
Till next time……………………
