“When you are in acceptance of your life, you do not refuse to give your gifts because they do not meet your expectations. You give them because they are there to be given. Because the opportunity to give presents itself. And in the giving of those gifts, your destiny is revealed.
Only the God within you knows why your outer life looks a certain way. She knows but she cannot tell you because you would not understand. But when you begin to trust the gifts that have been given you, the purpose of your life becomes clear. You understand. You may not be able to put it into words, but you understand. You see how every lesson, every constriction, every problem, every moment of suffering was absolutely necessary for the gift to be revealed. For the gift to be trusted. For the gift to be given and received.
When you are in acceptance of your life, you are profoundly grateful, because you see and feel that a greater intelligence is operating in your life. That intelligence rests inside your heart and the heart of all beings. It serves your good and the good of others simultaneously. It honors all.”
Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”
