So, how can I discuss what is going on in the world without writing about it directly? This morning, I decided to share my personal approach to dealing with what is happening. Faith. I hope that you will find this a positive and hopeful light for the future.
What's FAITH Got to do With It?
Faith is a significant facet of my approach to dealing with life in general. Much of what life brings to me (and I imagine to you) is stressful, particularly now. Faith helps me keep on going, whatever happens.
A Bit of Context
The word 'faith' frequently carries religious associations. I'm not particularly religious, though I certainly am spiritual in how I think and feel about life. As I speak about faith, I think those of you who are religious (in a more conventional way) may find yourself in agreement with me, though potentially in a more religious context.
In whatever way that you, personally use or don't use the word God, I encourage you to find a way to receive my writing about faith in a way that serves you.
In years past, I never used the word 'God,' but now it really works for me. Here is what God is NOT for me; God isn't The Father, an omnipresent and omnipotent man with a white beard and staff up in the sky, directing events here on Earth.
I use the word God to include whatever intelligent, organizing, and guiding force there may be in the universe. I believe that God is everywhere, inside everything, and inside every person and living being. God is Love and the beneficial and unifying force of love in the universe.
Many years ago, I reached a crisis point. My daily experience of life was filled with fear, anger, and stress. I desperately needed to discover a way to be okay with whatever happened, whether or not I liked the situation. Frequently, I could not change bothersome situations, so I needed a way to be able to accept anything and everything.
I made a conscious decision to choose to be okay, no matter what. And I continue to make this choice, whenever things appear to be difficult.
In order to do this, I have to just TRUST that everything will ultimately turn out for the best. I trust that God will take care of everything. I feel like if it were not for this trust that I just could not continue to live.
For me, this is FAITH.
Bringing Faith to Today's Stresses
Particularly when times get tough, faith really gets me through. Even though I know that it is unwise to dwell on fear and negative thoughts, sometimes it difficult to stay away from them. Given the current economic and political climate, some days I obsess about it for hours. Eventually, I have to give up, or I would go insane. I just have to trust that everything will turn out. Hand it over to God.
Over the years, having faith has pulled me through numerous times. Today's social climate certainly provides me with frequent opportunities to engage my faith.
(Note: I also take action to take care of myself, if and when society as we know it ceases to exist. I've written about that stuff on numerous occasions. It makes sense to do what I can. Then I trust.)
We'll See How Everything Turns Out
It looks like we are in for a rough ride. And we'll make it through to the other side somehow.
Personally, I'm expecting to be alive and healthy to witness humanity's evolution to a higher plane of consciousness. You're welcome to join me!
