From the book of Psalms 107:29-30:
He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.
« After rain comes sunshine, » says the proverb. But what characterizes good weather? First and foremost, it is this calmness that expresses the gentleness of the climate and the mercy of a certainly more favorable time. But even more important than calmness is the presence of beings who experience this weather, which determines its beauty. One sighs. One can go out and enjoy the beautiful scents of vegetation and soil, contemplate the splendor of ecosystems… It’s a whole therapy that comes with good weather. However, it must be noted that this is only made possible with the arrival of a storm!
This is how things also happen in our spiritual life. God guides us on the paths of life. But how does he make us move forward? It is through experiences. Experiences make us progress. When our choices do not align with the deep aspirations of our being, the consequences can be dreadful. It’s the storm. We must go through it. But when we accept and do what needs to be done, light and joy resurface with the soothing calm that follows whirlwinds and winds. And this calm is felt deep within our being as what it truly is… a deliverance!
So, no matter what happens in your life, know that it is supposed to be there. Right now. Not because it would be the fate of destiny… but because you have produced it; consciously or unconsciously, voluntarily or involuntarily, you have created this. Whether you understand or not, whether you accept it or not, it doesn’t change anything about the situation! However, acceptance will allow you to go through the storm with more serenity and righteousness. Right now, you know what’s happening. You sought to understand and you understood how it happened. You went all the way to the source to uncover the negative energies behind this event. And while the waves make their way, you surrender to your soul. You no longer fight. You know, and are convinced that all of this will soon end. It’s just a matter of time. You focus on feeling, you’re sad, you cry and each tear releases a beam of light in your heart…
Now, the pressure has dropped. The waves have calmed down and calmness has returned. You come out of this experience more fortified than ever, not only by the knowledge that comes from it, but also by the feeling. You have emerged stronger. Your soul is more emancipated. It is joyful and thanks you for allowing it to have this wonderful experience. Unpleasant, certainly, but marvelous! It was its will and now it knows that the energy it had emitted at the origin of this drama did not resemble itself much. From now on, it is aware of its spiritual position. Henceforth, this mission is accomplished.
