Adapting To Life –
Adapting and adjusting to the circumstances of our life in any given moment is a wonderful ability. We are living in a world of constant change, and without this ability to shift our stance to meet the incoming energies, we would be constantly knocked over. We need to be like the trees – strongly routed but able to move with ease and grace. Our strong roots grow from our inner self confidence in our worth and our abilities. Strong roots acknowledge a divine creator and a divine plan, and a working relationship with that creator. Strong roots include love – the love we are – the love we give and the love we receive.
But perhaps you have heard the old story about the frog. He will jump out of a hot pan of water in an instant, but if the water is increased by degrees he doesn’t notice it, and could eventually die from the heat. In this case the frog is adapting and adjusting to his life circumstances too well, to his own detriment. He doesn’t realize the ultimate danger and so he puts up with increasing discomfort. Is there any area of your life where you are behaving like the frog? Is there any person or situation that is causing you increasing discomfort, and yet you stay and let the discomfort grow.
Every human being deserves to be treated kindly, courteously, fairly, honorably, and respectfully. Unfortunately there are many human beings who do not behave that way toward their fellow man. Perhaps they have never been treated courteously, fairly, and respectfully themselves, or perhaps they were never taught as they grew how to behave in a healthy society where these traits are mandatory.
Nevertheless, by very nature of your existence, you have a right to these things. You deserve to be treated fairly and kindly and with honesty and justice. If you are in a situation where you are constantly being treated discourteously and dishonorably and someone is always taking advantage of you, why is this happening? Are you facing the facts squarely? Do you really have no other options at the moment? Are you accepting unacceptable behavior because the good far outweighs the bad, or for some other reason?
Many people stay in unacceptable situations because of fear of the unknown, fear of change or intimidation. None of those are good reasons to stay and put up with unacceptable behavior on the part of another. We owe it to ourselves to look at our lives honestly and completely.
If you are adapting and adjusting to some undesirable things – and you are aware of them – and you know why you do it – and you have valid reasons to do it, good for you.
If you are being taken advantage of and continue to function in situations that cause you pain, I pray that you find the courage to look around for some help to change. There is plenty of help out there from individuals to established organizations that deal with this sort of thing.
Adapting to life – it could be wonderful or it could be harming you. If you need to make some changes please feel the energy of help and assistance and courage and love that is coming to you from God and the angels right this minute.
