Our card for today, Monday, January 25th, is taken from The Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards – Acceptance – “I am learning to accept the things I cannot change.”
As most of us are learning on this spiritual path, there are many things about our lives that we can in fact change. We know that if we focus on the negative aspects of our lives, then we create more of those things in our lives just by placing our focus on them. If however we choose to place our focus on the more positive aspects of our lives, or even on things we would like to have more of in our lives, then we do indeed manifest more of those things into our reality. We have also learned that our own personal vibration also attracts certain kinds of experiences and people into our lives and if our vibration is low from fear or anger or even hatred, then we draw more of the things that will make us fearful, or angry and so on. If we keep our vibrations high by being the love we were created to be, by giving that love to all living things and showing kindness and compassion to others, we then attract more love and kindness into our own lives. So basically what we give out we get back, like karma.
However there are some situations and people that no matter what we try to do, no matter how loving we are to them, they will never change. It is in these instances that we are better off just accepting the fact that they are who they are, or the circumstances or situations will remain the same no matter what we do. And so we just have to learn to accept what is, knowing that everything is perfect in its own way, even if we can’t see that right now. Sometimes we have to stop trying to change things or people and just accept them as they are in this moment. If we are continually pushing against the people and events in our lives with an eye to making them better, then we are not helping them or ourselves. Sometimes acceptance is the only way we can know peace in our own lives. And of course this reading would not be complete without this famous prayer:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
