48 On Seeing Simple Truth



EXPERIENCE has taught us that if we want miracles in our lives then just maybe we have to consider that it is within our range of choice to allow them to happen. 
For instance, let us turn our thoughts to our present situation and allow the miraculous to be present.







Imagine That.
Allowing The Miraculous To Be Present.

46 On Seeing Simple Truths



EXPERIENCE has taught us that there comes a time in our lives when we must cross barriers or change paths if we are to get on with change and with facing our destiny. 
This is often referred to as “giving it up,” or “letting go,” or “turning it over.” 
But what are we giving up or letting go of? 
Simply put, long-held sacred cows. 
Often, we interpret these times of transition, of giving up sacred cows, as difficult.  Not necessarily because they are, but because we believe they are supposed to be. 
If, in our old mind-sets, we have programmed a belief structure that difficult is a necessary part of change, then the process of change will seem to be difficult.  Otherwise, we don’t believe it’s change.
We blend this misconstrued thought into what we have predetermined to be the only route available to the new and different, and we believe that the journey through change has to be difficult. 



What If It’s Not?
What If You Just Think It Is?
(Heads up on this one. It is a corollary to you depending on you!)

45 On Seeing Simple Truths


EXPERIENCE has taught us that there are gifts in life that most of us do not recognize as gifts.  Sometimes we may have to stretch it a bit to understand them as gifts.
The gift of fear is the restoration of our capacity for wisdom and freedom.
By embracing our fears, we gain the opportunity to notice what is life-destructive and what is life-enhancing. Both avenues of investigation require risk.
Peck says, in The Road Less Traveled,
“When We Extend Ourselves, Our Self Enters New And Unfamiliar Territory. . .The Experience Of Change, Or Unaccustomed Activity, Of Being On Unfamiliar Ground, Of Doing Things Differently Is Frightening. . .Courage Is Not The Absence Of Fear.  It Is The Making Of An Action In Spite Of The Fear, The Moving Out Against The Resistance Engendered By Fear Into The Unknown And Into The Future.” [1]
