Received from my Beloved Guides on 11-15-16 when I expressed concern about a situation in my life.
Expectation of how you think things “should” be is a sure sign that you will fail to understand one another because you each have a different idea about what to expect. Some seek spiritual growth and that is fine. However, just know this, it is all contributing to spiritual growth. No matter what you are doing, you are growing. You are seeing yourself in action and learning from that.
You may never change this lifetime into what you think you “should” do or be. However, simply know that just being here on this planet is your spiritual growth – just breathing and being here in a space of living and sharing the light of your being with everyone wherever you are. It is all the same.
Only you think there is a difference but that is because you are experiencing duality, right and wrong, black and white. You may say to yourself: “This is what you should be doing; this is the right way; that way is not really for your highest good.” Those statements or thoughts can make you feel that you are not measuring up.
You may feel overwhelmed or whatever else it is that you feel. It is not a matter of whether you are overwhelmed or calm. It is your reaction to it that is key here. Be with whatever you are feeling in a place of equanimity, of being with it, being with yourself. Love and accept yourself just the way you are.
Choosing to state that certain ways of feeling are better than other ways denies you access to feeling good about yourself no matter how you are feeling. It is all the same, an experience.
So simply be with whatever you are feeling. It is not complicated. The human mind makes it very complicated. Ease up on yourself and be with what is no matter what is going on.
Your choice of words to name it overwhelm or wrong to feel the way you feel is what makes your feelings feel wrong. From a higher perspective it is not wrong. It is all an experience. Stop and smell the roses in the middle of however you are feeling.
