Often our plans are frustrated. We want something to go just right, and we work hard to achieve that goal, only to be disappointed with the end result. When this occurs in the normal routines of life, we can, in many situations, overlook our disappointments and appreciate the things that did go well. As time passes, we may even discover that things may have gone better than we had hoped they would. Perhaps it was only our perception that was off.
When our plans seem to go off track in the spiritual realm, we pause to consider: “Why weren’t my prayers answered?” “How could I have been so off course?” But, another question we might ask which could help us understand what happened on a deeper level is this: “Were my plans frustrated, or were The Divine’s plans frustrated?” If we are certain that our plans and The Divine’s plans were in alignment, then the outcome may have been disappointing only because we had projected a different result, but consider that the end result might have been exactly in accordance with what The Divine desired and also what we desired especially if the outcome was more in keeping with the deepest desires of our heart—to love and to be loved. In the routine of life, and in the spiritual realm, letting go of the end result is an important lesson to learn.
