I am at a very interesting point in my pursuit of a spiritual path, a path of truth. I have gotten to that point where the knowledge I have found is working its way into my daily life and without thinking I am not reacting but accessing and then acting. Not all of the time, way to human for that, yet…
It is unrealistic to think we will not get pissed off. Even the most enlightened being you can think of is going to get overwhelmed with this play called humanity. Humans are as they are and really we cannot expect any different, said with such disappointment…
But, all is well.
Now here is another idea that can help me past the bullshit I see. I am a doer. If I see an injustice I will speak up. When someone mistreats their child in front of me, I say something. When a partner belittles their partner in front of me, its my eyes they see while their partner is looking down. I have not always thought all is well. As a matter of fact I have thought humanity way past well and sick as hell.
That is a view that doesn’t see beyond to creators will. My mistake was in thinking that free will had a bigger role than it actually does. We are all free to fu*k up our lives as much as we wish and for lots of people it’s the suffering they endure because of their fu*k ups that finally turns them towards the light of a spiritual path. But what had been lost in translation is that everything that is happening is happening as planed. Just as Jesus told Peter he would deny him 3 times, Peter was shocked, “who me”? But when the time came Peter’s free will did deny Jesus 3 times. It was part of the story all along.
When we who walk a spiritual path make every step with the divine in mind we are doing God’s work. It can be a hardship to turn and look at humanity that seems hell-bent on destroying everything on God’s green earth and the inhabitants there in, it becomes for me a need to wear blinders before I am screaming, “destroy us, we know exactly what we are doing and just don’t give a shit anymore”.
I wonder how the movie Noah is going to do? But God made a promise not to do that again so I guess I am going to have to get the phrase all is well firmly planted in my head. God wishes us to look through eyes that know all is well. Look around long enough, live long enough, suffer long enough, and you will get that all is well. Though it sometimes doesn’t look like it or feel like it or even remotely seem like it, all is well.
The big creator in the sky has this story already locked down and it seems God is not into tragic outcomes though a good story always has plenty of tragedy in it. But like a good Hollywood movie usually a good outcome is assured, or frankly who would go. Even in the worst of circumstances we find a silver lining to stories and events and learn that indeed all is well.
It’s a statement of faith. It’s a statement of maturity. It’s a statement given by God. Can’t argue with that. So when Oprah asks me what I know for sure, I am going to say, what I know for sure and beyond any doubt but will stumble to remember over and over again, is that all is well. All is well!
