When you don’t get things that you want, many people will tell you “Everything is in divine order,” which loosely translates into believing there is a reason, a good reason, a beautiful reason for everything– but you lame grasshopper of a tiny, baser consciousness cannot yet behold why it’s just peaches and cream perfect that you’re in how shall we say it—HELL—and struggling to claw your way through your own black swamp– while someone else nabs their dream job, spouse, and home along the sunniest coast of Spain, and, yes, bless their hearts, tweets about it. I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I’m in pain, it’s hard to see perfection in my life.
But then, and I say this grudgingly, that would be the point of having a spiritual practice or faith.
Spirituality is all about holding a perspective that it’s hard for your ordinary mind to see. That’s why it’s an extraordinary path.
