You can see reality or you can choose to see what you want to see. This is especially important when reality is bleak or uncomfortable. Don’t be afraid to put on your rose colored glasses if it makes you feel better and gets you through a tough or stressful life experience. Experiences in life are meant for growth, learning, expanding, improving and training in controlling perspective. You can choose to perceive experiences as good or bad. There are no experiences that are bad in the eyes of Divine Spirit. They are merely necessary for growth. The human mind puts labels on the experiences in an effort to accept or digest. The old adage “Everything happens for a reason” is quite literal here. Many times, you cannot wrap your head around the reason of why something happened. Many times, in these moments, anger is involved, because something was experienced that was tragic to the person experiencing it. Every time, if the person can look back on the perceived tragic experience from a present perspective, they will see the growth and the knowledge that was gained in their life from it. It doesn’t make it feel any better, but it is a way of justifying reason. We encourage that you comfort yourself and choose to perceive whatever way you need to to carry you through an experience that is difficult to digest. Perception is your reality. Amen.
