Applying the Law of Least Effort means living each day with Acceptance, Responsibility, and Defenselessness.
“I practice acceptance. Today I accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I know that this moment is as it should be because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they were.”
When I first began to read this daily and more than once a day, I felt myself pushing against the circumstances that I thought needed to change. I didn’t realize how much effort it took to right the wrong I felt was happening. My mind was so engaged in making it right, I couldn’t see beyond that. My family is very dear to me, this was a family imbalance and I wanted relief.
It took practice, lots of practice, but gradually I began to embrace acceptance of the things that I considered bad and could not change. What I found out in the process was that the more I accepted and became grateful for these seemingly bad things prayer messages began to appear. Relief began when I prayed, not for what I wanted, and instead prayed for what the universe was showing me. A peace came over me. The peace of acceptance and assurance.
Looking back now on that very difficult time I can tell you my life has changed to give up the struggle and embrace acceptance.
It is my prayer that we can all embrace the difficult challenges with acceptance and give up the struggle. We have more to offer others when we do.
In Love and Harmony,
