"Your demonstration is just one person away." ~Rev. Helen Street
When my dear friend and prayer partner mentioned this quote from our teacher, I suddenly thought of my experience when I first got to Hawai'i. My dog was in quarantine. I was staying with a friend and really wanted my own place. I didn't have a job and was having a hard time finding one. I was beginning to wonder why I had shaken up my whole world and moved to an island 2500 miles from home.
I was in ministerial classes at the time. That Thursday night I asked the class to pray for me to find the perfect job. Rev. Helen told me to stop worrying, trust the process, take Friday off and go to the beach. So I did. As I walked down Kahala Beach I saw a woman laying on a towel with an Abyssinian cat on a leash by her side. I love cats and this one drew me to it like a magnet. I ended up sitting with the woman for a few hours talking and playing with her cat.
Later that afternoon the phone rang. It was the secretary of an accountant who wanted to know if I'd like to come in for an interview. Now I had left resumes all over Honolulu, but not at this man's office. It turns out the woman with the cat was a bartender ... one of her regulars was complaining that his office manager was leaving suddenly .... and you can guess the rest of the story!
My demonstration was just one person away.
When I stopped stressing about not having a job, and the rest of my story -- everything fell into its perfect place. I learned I didn't have to Make things happen - I could Welcome them.
What are you trying to make happen in your life? Do your spiritual practices, open your heart, and welcome it in. Spirit is waiting.
Spiritual Mind Treatment
There is One Perfect Power in the universe. It is infinitely intelligent and unconditionally loving. It surrounds and encompasses us. It is everywhere. It is our life. I trust that in every moment, the Power for Good is working in and through us.
I smile as I notice all the avenues Spirit works through. I know my demonstrations can be just one person away, and when I welcome them in, all is revealed because I trust! How wonderful and simple this is!
Gratefully I release these words to the Creative Process and allow each moment to unfold in grace and joy. And so It is.
