An inquiry from a reader of my book and blog: “One of the most common things that I have seen come up over the last couple of weeks is in people feeling uncertain about things in their lives. They say they are feeling ready to give up, exhausted from trying to see results. While it seems that many are extremely frustrated in this process, I have learned to often see (I mean AT LEAST see) that there is a real gift when things get so hard. Where do you need to surrender and have faith? Where is it time to let go and let your spirit OR The Spirit take charge? Where do you need to step back so that you can receive what you have been working for?” — J.
Response: In answer to your questions, humbly and respectfully, I believe that if one endeavors to embrace the wonderfully healthful spirit of Acting Without Acting, i.e., ‘doing the right thing for the right sake – without the need for selfish recognition or hidden agendas (and without fooling oneself),’ then in so MANY instances one HAS done what one can do. While one of the greatest of gifts is that there is always room for improvement, this may best be applied to each new challenge, of which there are hundreds each day…which are ALSO among the greatest of gifts. It is QUITE important to endeavor to ‘embrace our comfort and discomfort equally.’ It is congruent with playing the part of the perfect or next-to-perfect Witness, less and less blemished, in the truly loving, selfless, and altruistic spirit of true honesty (‘promoting of true happiness and true freedom…and needing less and less to hide behind’). — Dr. Glen Hepker
