We are perpetual students and the world is our classroom. Profound and necessary learning comes from situations we encounter outside our comfort zones.

Kahlil Gibran wisely reminded, “I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.”

Within every dialogue, every interaction lie opportunities for us to willingly examine the varied range of subjective perceptions and emotional reactions erupting from us. These encounters are gifts for growth. And, as writer Neale Donald Walsch poignantly writes from the perspective of God in his Conversations With God book series, “I have sent you nothing but angels.”

Imagine that sentiment as a personal motto – that every individual you have encountered has been an angel on assignment to assist you towards your greater yet to be.

The classroom of the world would take on a different energy. We would see our relationships as an outpouring of divine order. Holding a grudge, polishing our injustice button or investing in righteous indignation would not consume our energy. Instead, we would review the past and present timeline of our life with a depth of conscious understanding, regretting nothing.

This freeing revelation is known as living in alignment. When I am aligned with the divine principle of Life, I have no resistance to any lesson, any teacher. When this happens, the gifts of life are free flowing


AFFIRMATION:   Every encounter is a holy one. I am sent nothing but angels.
