Reflections on the Future

Many of us spend our time in the future. We are thinking about whether we are going to get that raise, or find the right partner to share our lives with, or  having enough money to pay our bills, and so on and so forth. The list gets longer and longer. We are so set in the future we don't see the possibilities available to us now.

It's difficult to live in the now, but it is important.  Because when we live in the future we are missing opportunities that Spirit provides.

Maybe we need to find a different job. Maybe there is an opening right in front of us that we don't see. The same is true with finding the right partner and handling our finances. So what do we do?

Let's realize that God provides us with endless, creative energy. When we tap into this Consciousness, we able to release all our human burdens, doubts, fears, and concerns. We are then free to receive the Creator's gifts of Divine Guidance and Grace. God never let's us down. Our responsibility is to remain open, that's all we have to do.

An open heart with an open mind will see right now, in this very moment, that God is working in and through us.  We are never detached from the Source. All we need we have available  right now.

Our own human will cuts us off. We feel we must take control and do the work. Often this leads to lots of disappointments, frustrations, fear and anxiety.

Susan and I have tried controlling all sorts of things in our lives. Our research demonstrated, this doesn't work very well. So we decided to start turning things over to God. Many amazing things have happened with this shift in awareness.

Susan, as you know, suffers from a Bipolar condition. When her psychiatrist decided to retire we started to panic. How would we find the right doctor?  Would we have to drive an hour and a half for an appointment? Would the new doctor mesh emotionally with Susan? So many unanswered questions. However, when we let go of all of this worry and trying to control the situation, we remembered to turn to God. (Isn't it ironic that we end up turning to Source after we have tried everything by our self?)  After turning it over, we found a doctor who meets all of Susan's needs and is an integral part of her healing. She now takes less medications and is a happier person.

We also prayed for prosperity and abundant living. This worked out too. We were able to purchase a beautiful home that we thought was beyond our financial reach. We went through a period of financial lack and surprisingly little checks started coming in the mail. A big demonstration of this is when Susan was told she has liver disease. The doctors told us that eventually she would need a transplant. We started praying for healing and guidance. But in the mean time,  the medical bills for her treatment started piling up. She was guided to turn to her dad for help. He gave her a credit card with a limit of $25,000, which covered everything.

It is the Father within who does the work. All we need to do is the following: go into the Silence; pray for guidance;  listen to the Divine;  stay in the moment; and  accept the gifts that are all around us. If we are living in the future we can't do this. We have to give up human control and open our hearts to feeling the presence of Unconditional Love with Unlimited Opportunities.

Sending you peace and joy in the moment today,
Gary and Susan Eby
