Those words came into my mind during a meditation a couple of weeks ago. I wrote it down and it's been sitting on my desk ever since.
That day I was meditating over something that came up that I wasn't happy about. I was feeling unsure, afraid, and anxious. So I went to my meditation spot, lit a candle, and sat. I cleared my head(repeatedly). I focused on calming myself, becoming present and peaceful. Then those words came up suddenly. "It's perfect. You'll see."
Immediately I felt better. Relieved.
Everything is perfect. It all happens for our greatest good, whether we see it or not. If you're stuck in traffic, growing more impatient and angry by the second, stop for a second and consider this: What if you weren't stuck in traffic, therefore arriving at such-and-such place that much sooner, and got into an accident? Even the traffic jam is for your greatest good. For your benefit. You will likely never know what would have happened had you not been delayed, but you can know that the way things happened was in your best interest.
Often we ask for things in life that we want. At least we think we want them. So we petition the Universe (or God). We think about whatever it is we desire. We may say affirmations. And we may or may not get what we want. Trust that whatever happens, if you get the thing or not, that's what's best for you, at that time.
The same is true for people in our lives. Everyone we come into contact with is there for a reason. It's like a superbly orchestrated production. You are there in their life for a specific purpose, just as they are there in your life. This goes for people you have short, fleeing relationships with. Like the cashier you see at the grocery store. And people who stay in your life for extended periods of time. Like friends, family members, and romantic partners.
The trick is in not forcing the issue. Let things be perfect. Stop meddling with that perfection. Let people come into and out of your life at the perfect time. When you feel, in your heart of hearts, that something isn't right, respect that feeling.
Do you feel it's time to move on? Then release your hold on the present circumstances and watch as perfection unfolds into new circumstances for your future.
This isn't to say that what's "perfect" won't still hurt, cause you anxiety, or make you afraid. But it doesn't have to. Your feelings are your reaction. Your choice. It's you trying to hold onto something, as it is. Or afraid of what will come. That's ok. It's perfectly normal and natural. Just don't let those feelings of fear and hurt hold you back from experiencing what's perfect for you.
Let it be. Let go of your hold on "it." Recognize that "it" is perfect, as it is happening right now. Know that the Universe (or God) is at work and there is so much happening behind the scenes that you can't see. But it's all for you.
Trust your gut. Trust your heart. Trust the Universe.
Be YOU. You're perfect just as you are. You'll see.
