When things are at their most challenging our consciousness demands an explanation. Why am I going through this? Why did that happen? How could they get away with that?
The answer though, the truth of why, is more often then not mindless, beyond limited logic and reason. As the great Eli Wiesel of blessed memory, once observed, even if you could explain Aushwitz, would you want to? Would you want to understand the “good reason” behind millions of deaths and atrocities?
So, where do we go from there? How can we possibly answer what our consciousness’ demands?
In those moments the best answer we have is a shift in our perspective toward the awareness that these moments are some of the most powerful opportunities we can experience in this life. The moment and instant in history when the universe calls us to step up and be. When, instead of sitting back and waiting for answers, we answer the call; “this is whats happening, what am I gonna do about it.” In a spiritual approach, answering the call is not willing reality to meet our expectations, it’s fitting ourselves to meet reality.
So, just for today we can breathe deep, lean in, and answer the call of the Universal Spirit
