“The Will of God for me is the will of a boundless life, flowing through me. It is the will of joy, of success, of happiness, of peace, of abundance… Nothing rewards or punishes me but the immutable law of cause and effect. There is no good that I cannot experience provided I first embody that good.
“There is justice, knowledge, right guidance.
“God is right where I am.”
– “365 Science of Mind: A Year of Daily Wisdom from Ernest Holmes,” June 2
I found myself getting frustrated and angry at the “injustices” I experienced today…
… Like being charged a $50 service fee by a discount airline ticketing company when the airline changed the departure time by 10 minutes, on an electronic ticket no less. I’m disputing the fee of course, but resent the time, effort, and hassle on my part.
Or, take the company that offered free electronic income tax filing, including extending the due date. I submitted my data, but the thing is the extension was granted only until June 15 instead of October 19. I was told it supposedly couldn’t be changed, and now I find I cannot meet the June deadline, which I was hoping I could.
And, then I couldn’t get a hold of a person at the Internal Revenue Service with all their menus, sub-menus, sub-sub-menus, all leading me to the recording stating “A representative no longer responds to this question.” Three phone calls, three times selecting a different option in the hope of getting to a real live human being, but to no avail.
The list goes on and I know I’m not the only one to experience the incompetence, lack of professionalism, and poor communications of so many organizational entities out there. But it disturbs me how I let these incidents disturb my peace, actually take away my peace.
But then I remembered the reading from this morning which included the phrases “…the immutable law of cause and effect,” “There is justice…,” and “God is right where I am.”
I cannot control people, situations, companies, etc. However, with the law of cause and effect, as the saying goes, ”what goes around, comes around.” Hence, there is justice, and it will prevail with a balancing of the ‘rights’ and ‘wrongs’.
And most importantly, God is in the midst of it all—I don’t go through anything alone but always with Spirit. So why give up my peace? The Universe has this handled. I may not see it in my time, but just knowing that all will be balanced and turn into good, is calming. If I am to experience my own good, then I must embody it. Losing my peace does not promote that.
So, I’m leaving it to the Spirit of the Universe to handle things so that I can experience the joy, success, happiness, peace, and abundance that is the Will of God.
Thank You, Spirit!
