Words Don’t Teach

Have you ever tried to explain a situation to someone, only to see that they just don’t get it? But then they actually experienced whatever it was you were talking about, and now they understand what you meant. You see, words don’t teach, only life experience does. It’s like trying to describe the color red to a blind person. They might get an idea about what you are talking about, but they will never truly know what red looks like.

You know, we really do have an inner being which also has an inner being and so on and so forth. Let’s just say that there are many, many beings looking after us. The trick is to be aware of the help that you’re receiving. I’ll give you a few examples of times when I absolutely felt the presence of my inner being by the help I received.

Two very recent incidents happened within a few days of each other. It was approximately eight am, and I was headed to work. There has been road work happening on this particular part of my route for a while, and there was only one lane open until we got to the traffic light, where it opens up to three lanes. I don’t usually move to the right lanes because I will eventually be turning left. But on this day, for some reason I quickly moved to the middle lane and stopped at the red light. Then suddenly the car behind me flew through the red light at full speed. He didn’t even notice that he did it. Then it made sense to me why I moved over so rapidly. And it just so happened that my roommate was behind that guy and he saw the whole thing. We both pulled up to the next light together and rolled down our windows, and said in unison, “Universe”.

Then a few days later I was at a red light, and when it turned green my car hesitated for a second. Then I saw why. A lady ran the red light in front of me. She didn’t even look like she knew she did it. But my inner being knew. There have been so many times that I felt the presence of help from above. The trick is to recognize that that is what’s happening.

Those things might seem like coincidence to you, but I know that I am always taken care of. I know that well being abounds. I know that I am a spiritual being having a human experience. I also know that I’ll never get it done, and I know that I can’t get it wrong. Life is just one continuous experience after another. It’s up to us to find the silver linings. We all have a right to our own perspectives. We can choose to see why whatever happens is a positive thing or not. Remember, where focus goes, energy flows. When we see the good in our experiences, more good experiences can come.

This is why I say words don’t teach. I can tell you story after story about how I know that I am always taken care of. But until you start realizing that the Universe is always bringing you whatever it is you are focused upon, and except that you are creating your own reality, you will only be creating by default. You are letting outside circumstances create for you, instead of figuring out what really floats your boat. You see, you are the only one that knows what makes you happy. And so as far as I’m concerned, it is each and every one of our rights, or dare I say our duty, to make ourselves as happy as possible. And that is how we all live happily ever after.

Remember, a belief is just a thought you keep thinking. So if you want to live your dream life please believe that you are a worthy person who deserves to live a wonderful life. Please believe that you can be, do or have anything your heart desires. There is room enough for everyone. There are no limits to anything, and most of all, there is nothing serious going on here.

So what’s the gist of this message? It’s to be aware of what is happening in your life, so that you can create the life you choose. Be the best you, no matter what or who that may be. It’s all good. And one more thing, remember there is always great love for you here.
