We are fond of saying that life is unpredictable. The problem is, that isn't really true. Life is largely predictable. As a rough estimate, I think probably 90% of life is predictable; the sun rising, water flowing when it's warm or freezing when the temperature drops......you can see where I'm going with this. The thing that is unpredictable is the human element. The sun will rise on tuesday but someone else is teaching my 7:30 class.
I really feel rejected......but I know that the universe rejects no one.
My opportunity now is to connect to my true nature and bring my awareness to all that is. If I am willing to embrace everything and everyone, I can let go of the fact that I was on a roll with my students; I can let go of the opportunity that I had to be of service to them and how much I was enjoying watching their progress and delighting with them in new experiences of connection.
Today is my opportunity to let go if disappointment and embrace present moment awareness. Today I have the opportunity to be grateful for every thing and every experience that has brought me to this moment. I don't need to question the foundation of my life just because something didn't go the way I wanted it to go. This is my opportunity to practice my practice and sit down and breathe....
Today is my opportunity to be so connected to the universe that I can let go of living life to the extent that I can let life live me.... I can be like water; without resisting, I can be who I am and do what I do within the context of my environment. External forces may freeze or melt or evaporate; but I will remain with my true identity throughout all the variations.....waiting patiently for my opportunities to present themselves.
