365 Days, Day 322

Everything we call a trial, a sorrow or a duty, believe me, that angel's hand is there, the gift is there, and the wonder of an overshadowing presence. Our joys, too, be not content with them as joys. They, too, conceal diviner gifts (Giovanni Giocondo)

Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly (Gilbert Chesterton)

Sometimes we are thrown a curved ball which completely winds us. Something you really didn’t see coming. A trial, a sorrow, a turn of events that causes great sadness. We are left reeling; the weight of the world is upon our shoulders.

There are lessons to be learned. Ones which often only become apparent with hindsight. Sometimes the lessons may be about letting go. To release the load. Not to take on the problems of others. When we do take on our loved ones’ problems, when we expend energy worrying about them, we dis-empower them. They need to carry their own burden; we can only be part of the back-up team in the background, waiting for when we can spring into action to lend a hand. We need to use our energy for this purpose; do not waste the energy on something that we cannot ‘fix’ or do not understand.

Let the rock of worry dissolve into little grains of sand that can run out like salt, back to Mother Earth. Send your worries out to the Universe, Mother Nature. Listen for your guardian angel’s wise whispers in response.

Just for today: do not worry.
