It is what it is…for now.

(Listen to my song “Slow Me Down” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Sirach 2:4-6

Accept whatever happens to you; in periods of humiliation be patient. For in fire gold is tested, and the chosen, in the crucible of humiliation. Trust in God, and he will help you; make your ways straight and hope in him.


When we don’t accept what is…we create suffering for ourselves.

This does not mean we cannot work to change a situation that we don’t like or is unjust.

But we first must accept the present moment.

Simply be present to what is.

That’s it.

No mental commentary.

This current moment may be one of transition when life is telling you it’s time to make a change.

But taking offense, mentally rebelling or ranting are all signs that your ego is in charge.

Let go of that!

Simply observe what your mind is doing…going on endless commentaries and diatribes.

Situations change.

Remember: This, too, will pass.

Allow the cauldron of life’s current situation to lead you to the change that will free you.

Trust that a Great Love is evolving all that is on an arc towards Goodness and Wholeness.
