I've been to so many New Age workshops and listened to so many kindhearted gurus in this lifetime that it's kind of unusual for me to hear a totally brand new idea anymore. This last week however I perked up my ears when a lady called and passed on this idea. "I don't ask God for things anymore. I ask for answers." We chatted about this for a bit and I really liked her understanding. "Things are more than material objects," she observed, "They are also symbols. By recognizing what the things around us symbolize we can make rapid headway in understanding ourselves and our life." She went on to tell me some experiences and the insights that have come to her by continuously asking Spirit, "What is the meaning of this?"Incidentally, I know there are some people who feel uneasy about consulting oracles or psychics and asking questions. It's as if they think life is a puzzle we're supposed to figure out all by ourselves and asking God for help is somehow cheating. I don't ascribe to that belief. I feel that if there is a reason why troubles come into our lives it is specifically so we will remember we have God and hosts of heavenly angels eagerly wanting to make themselves known to us and sometimes it seems the only They can get our attention is by giving us a problem only They can solve. Next time you come up against some stress or difficulty, ask yourself when was the last time you checked in with the Great Computer in The Sky? Take a moment to renew your acquaintance with The Man Upstairs and ask what your higher self would do in your situation. Then relax and watch the problems evaporate.
