Over the long haul, whatever happens must be for the good, for that’s how divine laws have been constructed. Basically, when we zag in a direction that opposes God’s will and therefore spiritual laws, we will feel the pinch. And this will motivate us to zig back into line, to course-correct.
These are loving laws we’re talking about. They are designed to help us steer clear of making wrong choices using our own free will. For every single itty-bitty decision we make, and every attitude we choose or deed we do, is another chance to get right with God by setting ourselves straight with divine laws.
There is a spiritual law that says we will always be shown the easiest path forward, given the circumstances at hand. But note, the flip-side of this means that the longer it takes us to chart a better course, the more difficult the way will become. We so often observe this in action when we get caught in some vicious Lower-Self habit. And the more caught we become, the harder it is to break free. The more we keep running from facing up to our inner misunderstandings, and the more we continue to resist changing, the bigger our hurdles become. This keeps going until our life challenges become so insurmountable they bring us to our knees. Eventually, our own unhappiness will lead us to want to make a change.
Keep in mind, we can always turn to God and ask for help in overcoming our obstacles. Perhaps we think God doesn’t care about us and that we shouldn’t burden God with our problems. But how crazy is that? After all, God created this sphere specifically so we could come here and learn to correct our inner errors. And this includes them all, great and small.
Actually, there is really no such thing as a big or little issue. For whatever is happening between us and a small handful of people is the exact same thing playing out on the world’s biggest stages. Some tiny issue in a domestic spat has the same impact—the same importance—as a big international quarrel. In fact, those so-called big issues couldn’t even exist if thousands of minor ones didn’t roll up into them.
In other words, our day-to-day struggles set the precedent for creating the mammoth situations we see playing out on a larger scale. The place to resolve such issues, then, starts by mindfully examining every distortion we discover in ourselves.
