Thoughts and reflections

I updated yesterday's post with a bit more info but I'm starting this message/post with a reflection on something that happened yesterday. I figured it is best to reserve it for today because my morning quiet times are when I reflect best.

I have to apologize in advance because I didn't type this all up in one shot. I just didn't have the time to so things may not actually flow. I had to stop in the middle too many times and to jump back a few hours later made it hard for my brain to work it all out. I've had to redo and delete a few times so I've given up. I'm posting it as is simply coz my brain is fried.

So, I was having my wonderful zen moment of peace yesterday. I actually had a couple of great AHA moments mostly about parenting. I'd say probably 12:30pm I got a call from my daughter from school. She sounded a little upset. It was about this baby black bird they saw yesterday at the bottom of the tree (seemed to have fallen off the nest). I don't know anything about birds. I'm not going to go into details of how crazy things got but this experience reminded me about how ego can get in the way of how God works things out. I was frustrated because wildlife people didn't call back till 5:30pm. My husband was late and had not answered any of my calls. my 16yo son didn't want to help and the daughter who called about this bird suddenly lost interest. Their school was already closed and we were losing daylight. I found myself no longer at peace but annoyed with this situation...the wildlife people, my two kids, and my husband for complicating my life and giving me these problems. I prayed about this so I wondered why this was a struggle . Well, it all made sense later. We got to the school and there was a play that night. The lady coordinating the event turned out to be a bird expert. Her parents were licensed to handle/breed birds and she'd grown up with birds all her life. She was thrilled to hear about us rescuing a bird. She basically used the materials we brought and took over from there. She also offered to comp us if we wanted to watch the play. I was really amazed at how that all worked out. Totally humbled by it.

So, this is what I got out of this situation. God was orchestrating for everything to happen perfectly with the right person at the right time. The events with everyone were precisely timed for the best outcome. I initially believed it was the worst time for us to do it because I allowed my ego to judge the events and people as problems when really they were all part of the solution. The way that happened was beyond the limits of time. As I have learned from ACIM that the Holy Spirit does not follow the laws of the world (time, space, dimension). There were too many factors involved for my analytical brain to comprehend how things had to line up to make all people and events come precisely to that point. Think of all the free will that is involved that the H.S. cannot interfere with and yet still work it out perfectly.

I'd like to reference a few things from ACIM. It tied in well with this day's experience for me. I'm not sure if this makes sense to the reader but I would like to include it anyway....

A Course In Miracles
CH. XI The Test of Truth
3..."Nothing you have ever learned can help you understand the present, or teach you how to undo the past. Your past is what you have taught yourself. Let it all go. Do not attempt to understand any event or anything or anyone in its "light", for the darkness in which you try to see can only obscure. Put no confidence at all in darkness to illuminate your understanding..."

12. "Those who remember always that they know nothing, and who have become willing to learn everything, will learn it. But whenever they trust themselves, they will not learn. They have destroyed their motivation for learning by thinking they already know. Think not you understand anything until you pass the test of perfect peace, for peace and understanding go together and never can be found alone....
13. Only those who recognize they cannot know unless the effects of understanding are with them, can really learn at all. For it must be peace they want, and nothing else. Whenever you think you know, peace will depart from you. Because you have abandoned the Teacher of peace. Whenever you fully realize that you know not, peace will return, for you will have invited Him to do so by abandoning the ego on behalf of Him. Call not upon the ego for anything; it is only this that you need do. The Holy Spirit will, of Himself, fill every mind that so makes room for Him.
14. If you want peace you must abandon the teacher of attack. The Teacher of peace will never abandon you."

So, I've got a lot to marinate in my head.

Ohhh one more thing I wanna share. I am going through this re-feeding stage. I found a great site. Wonderful info. I'm so grateful that God brought it to my awareness. I hope it may help you too.

"Self Mastery Through Attentive Eating"


More info that was brought to my awareness...

"Our agitation, conflicts, and habits can be the doorway to another dimension of being, an experience of clear and open awareness, vitality, and positive qualities. Sometimes, when we are bothered by a problem, we think of the problem as being “out there.” We externalize the problem entirely, and we simply conclude that the other person needs to change. Or when we try to fix a problem, we strategize and analyze over and over. Yet, as we mull over our challenges, our strategies and actions are driven by the energy of agitation and discomfort. No action that is driven by our discomfort will solve anything. It will only contribute to the problem. It is only when actions come from openness that true resolution is possible.

By nature the mind is open and clear. This is who we are. Openness is the source of our being, and in openness we are connected to all of life. What obscures us from recognizing this source is similar to the way clouds obscure the sun. The sun is always shining, but from our vantage point—namely, our identification with our problems—we don’t recognize the radiance. We are simply more familiar with identifying and dwelling on problems, and we’re used to solving them with our conceptual mind. But it is through nonconceptual awareness, that we are able to directly experience the mind’s openness."
