If things in your life are falling into place like clockwork, and good is resulting, then God is in charge. If things are not working out the way you want, then God is allowing something to happen that will be for your greater good in the long run. Either way, God is always in charge—not your ego!
When you are in pain—physically, mentally, spiritually, or all three—you may turn to someone to aid in your healing. Ultimately, however, it is God’s Presence that does the healing. So the best thing to do is to immediately turn your pain over to God’s Presence within you, and continue to do so until you are pain-free once again.
The greeting “Namaste” basically means “I salute the Presence of God in you.” This is a wonderful thought because it acknowledges the very highest truth of our nature. But to take on real meaning you must live it—allowing God’s Presence to live through you in acts of creativity, healing, and love.
If you look back over your life, how many times has life seemed awful, only to find out later that what happened was—ultimately—for your good? Yes, even when life seems bad it is ultimately good, because the loving Presence of God is in charge, bringing about ultimate good for every soul.
