IT'S NEVER THE END OF YOUR WORLD! By Nick Ralls

I don't think I need to add anything of my own to this, it speaks for itself!


IT'S NEVER THE END OF YOUR WORLD!

By Nick Ralls

I realise it is never the end of the world... doors close and new ones open but the important thing is to choose a good journey through life and the only way to do this is through the power of love.


EVER felt it was the end of the world? The end of your world?
As we take this road through life, we encounter problems along the way... challenges... to do with people, health, work and money.
And sometimes the burden of this becomes just too heavy to carry and we think it's the end of the world for us....we need to escape or simply disappear.
So often we blame ourselves for our own mistakes, beating ourselves up in a way that no one else in our life would do. We focus so much on wrong decisions we might have made, or the wrong people we got involved with and seeking after the wrong things that we lose confidence in ourselves.
So often, we just want to get off the planet!
And when we feel like this it is time to reflect on the wonderful statement from Richard Bach in his book Illusions.
He comments: What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the
Master calls a butterfly.
So it is with our lives.
As one door closes, another door opens. And it is only change.
There might be rain in the sky, but moments later there will be a rainbow.
The truth is that we often spend so much time looking at the door that has closed, that we fail to see the doors that are opening.
And the doors opening are the ones that will take us back into a space of love.
It is madness to repeat the same old patterns, the same things that don't work for you over and over and over again.
If you repeat the same patterns, make the same so called mistakes then you will never get a different outcome.
Realise that it is never the end of the world for you or anyone else for that matter.
It is just a time to change.
Just as the caterpillar goes into its coccoon to emerge as a beautiful butterfly, so too must we in our lives face emotional and practical challenges that enable us to grow as the beautiful, wonderful and amazing people we are.
If we did not experience what love is not, how would we cherish and marvel in that which love is?
If we did not experience bad health, how would we appreciate the good health that we have?
If it was a case that we never lacked money, how would we appreciate money when it comes to us and use it wisely for the good of ourselves and others?
And if we did not have bad jobs and bad work situations, how would we be able to appreciate those work situations that allowed us to feel on top of the world?
So if you think your world is ending it might be time to see the new beginning.. what comes afterwards.
Time to break through the chains of restriction and oppression, so often self imposed, and to use those limitless inner resources connected to your own soul to manifest days of happiness, joy and fulfilment.
If your end of world situation comes about because of a lost relationship then realise that you need to release that person with your love and welcome into your life others who will treat you with the love, respect and commitment you deserve.
Why focus on close encounters of the unloving kind.
If your end of world situation comes about through financial loss, job loss or material loss, it is time to rebuild, believe in yourself and know that you are meant to do better and bigger things but don't feel trapped in the past which did not work for you.
If your end of world situation comes about through health issues, time to focus on what good health you have... seek out healing.. be gentle and kind with yourself and love your body like never before.
If your end of world situation comes through the whirr of thoughts in your mind... negative self talk... going over old ground... guilt... resentment... anger...then change those thoughts into positive and serving ones.
And don't waste a moment thinking about anyone you don't like.
This will just pull your energy down.
Instead, think positive and loving thoughts about both yourself and all those in your life who are worth having in your life.
For many of us it is time to give up restrictions, frustrations and life patterns that do not allow us to grow or blossom as the magnificent people we are...
Instead of focussing on the closed doors, those we have lost, the mistakes of the past, the person we once were and old resentments and hurts, it is time to focus on the next step of our journey.. the sunshine tour.
And make it a good one.
As we come to the end of our old world, a new world is waiting to embrace us.
Time to open the new door.. the door of love for both ourselves and others.

So dear and special friend... seize the chance to see the new doors opening and focus less on those which have closed... do open your heart.. share what is going on for you on this or any other subject...
