Accept that you are confused. Accept the uncertainty, embrace the mystery, and love the part of you that doesn’t understand.
If we come to a place where we find peace in not knowing why something has happened, yet we know that it inevitably is making us stronger, happier, clearer or raising us to new levels of understanding, we are able to navigate through situations with a much happier outlook.
We aren’t always meant to know exactly why something happens in our lives, and that’s okay.
If we switch our perspective from only searching for the hidden meaning behind something to instead just loving the person who is going through an unplanned change, we begin to align ourselves with our higher wisdom.
The wisdom that comes from the part of us that knows that not only does everything happen for a reason, but that everything happens to bring ourselves back to ourselves.
The more we love ourselves through these unexpected circumstances the more we start to live a life full of faith rather than thinking that we somehow need to exert complete control over everything and know exactly who, what, when, why and how for all of life’s situations.
“Adversity introduces a man to himself.” ~ Albert Einstein
Sometimes the deepest insight one can have is coming to terms with the fact that it’s okay to not know why something is happening. At the moment where we accept the fact that we are confused and don’t understand, two amazing things happen. First, we relinquish the need for complete control over to the higher intelligence of the universe.
This becomes a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders and allows us to trust that things are working out exactly as they are supposed to. The second thing that happens is we then allow ourselves to simply love the part of us that doesn’t know.
The minute we love this part of ourselves we shift into a level of understanding that says it’s okay to not understand. Soon our life begins to unfold in magical ways.
We start to see ourselves and our life’s circumstances from the vantage point of a higher level of wisdom. One that doesn’t need to know exactly why something is happening at the time that it happens, all it knows is that when something does happen that we didn’t plan for, the only assignment is to love the one going through the change.
From this vantage point, we find that circumstances not only begin to work themselves out on their own, but that we were only being led to bigger and better things.
If we remember just one little thing, that everything we are going through is preparing us for what we have asked for, we trust that the movie of life we are playing a part in will most certainly bring us to circumstances that may be surprising, but in actuality is shaping us into better and better versions of our former selves.
