I got the germs of the next few Seeds from my friend urban shaman Donna Henes’ blog on Beliefnet. She called them Wise Words of Self-Wisdom.
Joanne Siewert suggests, “Every problem can be solved with the proper application of the means at hand. Maybe not easily, happily, cheaply or painlessly—but it can be done if you have the will; you already have the means—yourself!”
Oh, it’s so important to remember this! Especially when we’re dealing with hopelessness or despair. Problems come with the means at hand to solve them. All problems. No exceptions.
One of the great truths of the spiritual life is that God most often doesn’t mail you a check to pay the rent, instead, what you get is an idea. Ideas are the currency of the Divine in our lives.
Not all ideas are implementable easily, happily, cheaply or painlessly, but I can assure you that all ideas are implementable because you are the precious being in which the ideas arise, and that means you always have yourself to take the actions needed.
