We all have this invisible power within us whether you believe it or not. And to enjoy this power, you don’t need to believe in God or belong to any spiritual organization. It’s like saying I don’t believe in gravity so does that mean gravity doesn’t exist for you. Try holding an apple in your fist and release the fruit and see what happens. So it doesn’t matter whether you believe in God or are a total atheist. It's a fact and not a subjective view of a few or many.
Okay? Now that, we know we have this power, so what? How does it benefit us? How does it matter to me? Well, that’s the good news. If anything you are stuck in or struggling in life, there’s always a solution within you. No matter how terrible or horrible the situation might look. You have the power within you to come up with the answer. Mariah Carey talks of the same thing in her song 'Hero' where she writes:
There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away
So that Hero according to me is that invisible power, God, energy, higher intelligence, the force or whatever you want to call it, is always available to all of us. Now you might say yeah it’s easy for you to say this now. Wait till you have a problem. When I have a problem how come up I can’t come with any solution. That’s because we are caught up in our thinking. We have too much going on in our heads. It happens with me too when I have a problem and when I'm caught up in my head i.e. thinking too much, I just can’t see the solution. Let me give you an example. The apartment building I live in currently is getting older and older and it’s about time to renovate the whole building, however, there are a number of landlords who don’t seem to want to upgrade. So after having the management meeting, for the next few days or weeks I had a bunch of thinking like they don’t want to do it, they don’t know what they are doing, it’s the right thing to do, maybe I should complain to the concerned government department so they are forced into doing it, it’s dangerous, blocks of concrete is falling, the elevator doesn’t function properly and we could get stuck and it’s really dangerous and so many other thoughts. I don’t know when but one of the days when my mind cleared and I was okay with the building not getting a renovation. I just felt peace within myself and mind you the situation is still the same. Now sometimes that invisible power might tell you what action to take and it may feel right or it may not tell you to do anything but you just feel good and peaceful within just like in my situation. By the way, it has been a year since that first meeting and nothing has been done but I’m alright with it and I’m enjoying my apartment. And honestly I have no idea what’s going to happen but I'm okay with that too. I love the story Linda shared on Radio Wow! about a house she bought. She thought something was off but she couldn’t quite put her finger on it so she didn’t do anything. After 2 years, she had an insight that she needs to build a wall and it was okay. So you see she didn’t do anything and just waited and because she knows everybody has wisdom including herself so she just relaxed and waited to see what would happen. But that waiting wasn’t like an impatient waiting. Oh! How come! Nothing's coming through! It’s been 3 months! It’s been 6 months! And now it’s 1.5 years and still nothing! Are you kidding me? No, during those years, she probably did the routine things that we all do like cooking, cleaning, picking up our kids, going to work and she was okay with her house not being okay. She waited and probably enjoyed whatever she had to do and a solution came to her. Sometimes it will tell you to do something like in Linda’s case and sometimes it will just make you feel good and be grateful about whatever you have like in my case. I'm grateful to have my apartment.
So this infinite power is available to anyone and everyone whether you believe it or not and it does come through when you need it. Next time when you have any kind of a problem, sit with it and do nothing until your mind clears, a solution will appear in the form of action or through a positive nice feeling. And this applies in any situation no matter how drastic it looks. See for yourself and please feel free to share your experience by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care and have a wonderful week!
