Daily Inspiration: August 21. Seeing the “Positive” in the “Negative” – Condensed Version

How many times in our past has something “negative” happened to us, or we were a part of, that later on, through time and introspection, we realize helped us become more peaceful, compassionate and wiser? If that “negative” experience assisted us in our growth, then was that “negative” experience ever really negative in the first place? Should we not be bowing in gratitude to our past-self for all the courage and fortitude it took to assist us in becoming who we are today? I know I am. Now, when I go through what my past-self went through, instead of perceiving things in a “negative” light, I simply smile, appreciate how the moment is presenting itself, place my trust in God, learn from it, offer gratitude for it, and at peace, move on.

Today, when we are going through a seemingly negative experience, let us not continue to feed the negative mindset with our time, focus and energy.  Instead, let us see this as an opportunity to recall how we have used our so-called past negative experiences to help us grow, heal and mature. Once our present-self can see and understand the gifts that these so-called negative past experiences have brought to us, it can also begin to comprehend how our current experience will also be used by God for our good — to help us achieve greater peace and understanding. Now, when such a situation presents itself, we simply smile at the ego’s effort to take our peace away and place our trust in The Divine. By doing so, we achieve the state of peace.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
