Everything Is Exactly The Way It's Suppose To Be

It is easy these days to feel that life is becoming increasingly challenging and difficult, and that everything around us is growing more unpredictable by the minute. We may even feel that something is going terribly wrong 'out there' in the world; as we feel a growing anxiety and fear about what might happen next. Yet every spiritual teacher and sage since the beginning of time has said that everything is unfolding exactly the way it is suppose to be unfolding - and furthermore -it is all happening for our highest benefit. Of course, when we are in the middle of some challenge in our Life; we've just lost our job, or our relationship has ended, or an illness has suddenly appeared in the body - we can lose this perspective very quickly, and begin resisting and struggling against the Flow of Life (what is happening Now).

With the perspective of time however, we can look back and see how the challenges we have gone through have always led us to something more expansive and joyful in our lives, even if it was just to teach us something that we needed to learn about ourselves; such as more patience or a greater acceptance of Life. Even the so-called 'enlightened state', is nothing more than clearly seeing that, despite the minds story otherwise, everything is utterly perfect as it is. As the great spirituall teacher Alan Watts once said:

"Spiritual awakening is the difficult process whereby the increasing realization that everything is as wrong as it can be flips suddenly into the realization that everything is as right as it can be."

The simple truth can never be too simple: Everything is exactly as it is suppose to be, and until we open and realize this Truth for ourselves, we will continue to resist, and suffer the consequences of that resistance. We will also continue to overlook the lessons and messages that are being presented to us by the Tao in every single moment that unfolds. Though it may be hard to remember as we navigate the challenges that we go through; there are no mistakes, and we are always exactly where we need to be right Now. In the acceptance of this one Truth, we can actually relax and awaken to the utter perfection of the Universal Flow. As we trust and move with the direction of this Flow (what is happening right Now), we experience the freedom and ease of a Life unhindered by worry and fear, a life of 'no mistakes'. If you doubt this; make it your practice that for the next week (or three), you will greet everything that happens in your Life as a gift that is unfolding to teach you something you need to learn about yourself (not somebody else), and then see how your Life suddenly starts working 'for you' instead of 'against you'.
