Why Me? Why Now? Why Not? Finding Opportunity In Your Obstacles

by Trish Whynot, D.C.Ed.

I used to be one of those people who would be quick to tell you that something didn’t bother me when deep down inside it did. That was how I had learned to cope. I was even proud of how I had mastered this version of pridefulness. But it was this dishonest methodology that led to my health problems, relationship discord and financial challenges.

We are in a relationship with everything—with people, with our health, and even with our finances. Experience is our teacher. When the fruit of our labors is health, relationship or financial discord, it is a heads-up that we may have encountered an insane coping skill such as pridefulness. Insane, because it is incapable of providing us with the results our hearts are seeking.

“You cannot evaluate an insane belief system from within it,” states the Foundation for Inner Peace's edition of A Course in Miracles.

Those experiences that are the most challenging to forgive contain the seeds to our greatest liberation. The healing and understanding that accompany forgiveness free our hearts to live more, love more and be more of who we truly are. A devoted journey toward forgiveness can offer us a whole new lease on life. We emerge from these challenges with humility and clarity—seeing purpose where there once was confusion, order where we previously could only see chaos, and similarities where we could only see differences.

Truths about love are tucked away in memories from our childhood. Redeeming these truths transforms us from victim to visionary. We all enter this world with a longing to love and be loved; the means to this end is where it gets confusing.

Sometimes we can genuinely be loving and sometimes we can’t. When we can’t it is time to purify our hearts by taking responsibility for the reasons that are preventing or blocking our ability to love. Healing in its truest sense involves changing some of our deepest and most basic limiting attitudes about love.
