Your Good Is Seeking You
November 7, 2018

When you have an unfulfilled desire
it’s easy to fall into a belief that
all the effort and sacrifice is on you to provide.
This involves viewing life as a battlefield –
and for warrior spirits, that’s a sacred place.
To spiritual warriors, life is all about fighting the good fight.
 
There is always another way.
When you step away from the battlefield
and decide to study war no more,
life is all about letting your Higher Power take charge.
By getting your smallness out of the way,
you make room for Spirit’s Greatness.

Divine Mind knows all the angles –
what you could be doing to best serve the world,
and how to have all your dreams and desires fulfilled
in a way that blesses all and harms no one.
 
If you want something, and it’s good for you,
that particular Good is also seeking you.
Spirit is the Magnet that is already bringing you together.
