The experience you are having is what is leading you to realization, to enlightenment. This experience is God’s purpose for your life and God’s grace is always functioning in your life to lead you through the expansion that will reveal your true Self. So if God’s grace is always creating circumstances, situations and experiences for your expansion, whatever is happening is that expansion playing out.
You can be certain your experience is the perfect experience for the expansion of your awareness because it is what is occurring. When God wrote the script for your unique life – for God to see through your eyes, hear through your ears and spread love and compassion through your thoughts, words and actions – in every instance God made that necessary expansion your present moment experience.
It may not feel like that is what is happening. When you live with the pairs of opposites, in separation, you judge everything as good or bad, wanted or unwanted. You grasp and push away. You live in resistance to ‘what is’ and in that resistance you do not allow yourself to see the deeper reality of each moment. Basically, you miss the point. The point of every moment is God’s grace allowing you to expand into the full realization of your Divinity.
How can losing your job be expansion? How can cancer be an expansion? How can the death of a loved one be an expansion? It is perspective. God wants to release you from your desires with attachment to outcomes. God wants to release you from your separation, your limited identifications, your judgments and your sense of limitation and worthlessness. Circumstances serve to create these releases, resulting in freedom. The pain you feel depends upon how firmly you hold onto these, how firmly you resist your own freedom and liberation.
When you accept ‘what is’ and you trust that what is unfolding is bringing you to a more expanded place, you open to receiving grace. God wants God’s full intelligence and power to flow through you and for you to be God’s vehicle for this intelligence, power, love and compassion to flow into the world. When you surrender to God’s will, when you accept what is, when you end resistance, God’s intelligence and power will create magnificence through you.
