“How to Let God Re-create Your Life”
Miracle of miracles, God can re-create your life at any time that it is in need of re-creation. Whatever a person’s circumstances, no matter what conditions exist in one’s life, the presence of God working from within you can re-create your life. It is so imperative to know and always be aware of this reality.
If you are in a cycle where your life does not need to be re-created, that is fine. However, as night follows day and spring follows winter, it is only a matter of time before things may change to such a degree in your life that you are left with no choice other than to start your life anew.
In today’s modern life, with so many changes taking place at such a rapid pace, a person needs to have an anchor of solidarity when it comes to having to start some part of life, or all of it, all over again. If you are an employee, your job situation may now change several times during the course of your working years. If you are a business person, there is so much change transpiring in the economic world, you may have to start a new business a number of times. No one in a profession is immune, and most knowledgeable people today are acutely aware of this.
Yet, intellectual knowledge, in most cases, is not enough, especially if a person is faced with the need to start anew. In fact, many people currently live in high anxiety and tension, fearing what they would do if their jobs or businesses collapsed. Such underlying tension can create health problems, which can further complicate matters, should drastic change in one’s life be necessary.
Health, in and of itself, can have a major impact on a person’s life, necessitating a radical change of lifestyle, related to work or one’s personal life. And, when it comes to one’s personal life, how great the necessity can become for re-creating one’s life when faced with a romantic breakup, divorce, or the passing of one you dearly love.
The greater the mystical spiritual awareness during such times, the easier it is to re-create one’s life. When I say mystical, I mean the inner knowledge that a portion of God’s presence is within you at the innermost center or nucleus of consciousness in your mind, and that God’s presence wants to help you because you are God’s creation, and God, as your eternal parent, loves you.
This awareness not only gives you something to fall back on psychologically, but it is also a literal mystical fact of life that means that your life can be re-created by God, whether your financial life, love life, or whatever area needs to be re-created.
Whenever your life is deeply in need of remaking, trust God rather than your personal ego. Your personal ego can only see fragments of the total picture of your life and where it should go from here. God, however, can see the whole picture of what needs to be done in your life. When you try to figure out what to do using the intellect of personal ego, you are immediately limited in terms of knowing what is needed to reconstruct your life. When you turn it over to God, you can have complete trust that whatever should be done for your best long-term interests will be done.
Living in accordance with one’s personal will creates a state of mind where a person more or less attempts to force things to happen. Giving up your personal will to God’s will allows things to happen naturally. When you give up your personal will, you, in truth, give up the will of a false, illusionary identity. When you give up your personal will to God’s will, the Divine can more completely and quickly move to do what needs to be done to re-create your life.
Behind a backdrop of major changes is your soul’s true purpose for this lifetime. If you allow God to re-create your life for you, you are automatically working with your soul’s purpose. The fulfilling of your soul’s purpose at every re-creation of your life will give you lasting happiness. The reason is that only that which fulfills your soul’s purpose for this lifetime can provide you with happiness that endures.
When you attempt to re-create your life through your personal ego, you may entirely miss what it is that will bring you fulfillment and happiness along with adding to your soul’s journey through eternity. You should always consider yourself an Eternal Being and that your decisions in life should, therefore, be made by The Eternal Being, or God.
Every time you meditate, you open the conscious level of your mind more completely to the influence of God’s consciousness surfacing from the deeper levels of your mind. If you are meditating on a daily basis, you are constantly exposing the energies comprising your conscious mind to divine energies from God. Over a period of time, varying from individual to individual, a transformation of consciousness occurs.
The end result of this transformation is that your new consciousness is in attunement with how your mind should be operating in a re-created life. Thus, your daily meditation is a means through which God can bring about changes in your consciousness equal to the consciousness necessary for re-creating your life.
You will realize at a certain point of spiritual awareness that God is constantly re-creating your life. Most people think that God only re-creates for a limited duration, and when that is accomplished, withdraws until the next time your life needs to be re-created. The truth is that the re-creation of your life after major change is an ongoing process.
