illusions, problems and gifts

By July 22, 2008 Blog

I am re-reading “Illusions” by (the guy who wrote ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull). It is a wonderful little book and it has been years since i read it. As usual it has wonderful insights for me!

Here is one quote that hit home for an issue I am dealing with personally at the moment:

‘There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in it’s hands… You seek problems because you need their gifts”

I have believed fo a LONG time that all situations have a gift in them. I was told once, after my daughter Jordan died, to ‘look for the diamond’ in the situation’. I always do. Sometimes it is easier than others to find it, sometimes there are many and they reveal themselves over time.

Perhaps you have a perceived problem at the moment, a challenge, and if you ponder on this it will bring you clarity as well. Look for the gift. It is why you created the issue in the first place.

Love the day and love yourself. It’s all an illusion anyway!
