Today I find myself faced with challenges. They all came at me quite early this morning through phone calls at 6 am this morning. The concerns were just added on to the challenges I already had waiting on me in my mind that needed to be addressed. Some of those challenges I did not quite have all the answers as to exactly how I was going to handle the situation. As I was walking through the house, I found myself thinking about something my teacher would always say. The funny thing is this same saying also came to me last week when I was going through some challenges.
I was at the gas station about to get some gas. I was thinking about the situation at hand. It was really big at the time, but now I don’t even remember what it was. What I do remember is that I was saying to myself and God, “This is way beyond me and I really have no idea what to do”. Then I remembered how my teacher, Mr. Ambrister, used to say “Do your best and leave the rest”. I also thought about how many times God and the Universe have come to my aid when I saw no way of how things could work out. Then I proceeded and walked into the station. When I got in, I began to talk to the owner, who is always friendly. He asked how I was doing, and began to talk about how lucky he was to be working during such tough times. He then said that, “Although times are tough, all we can do is do our best”. As he said this I could barely feel my body because I knew what was coming next. He then proceeded to say, “The rest we have to leave to God”. I said, This so true my friend.”
In that moment it was as though my guru and God were talking to me through the gas station owner, and the whole thought process and scenario. Now is my time to share this with you. Whatever you have going on, all you can do is your best. When you truly give your best, God and the higher power in you recognises this. Then you have to trust in God and the Universal Plan and let go. Also, I have to say that a big part of doing our best is taking the time to meditate and connecting with God within. This process helps give us the strength and clarity to handle the situation in ways we often can not even imagine.
