What a difference an R can make. It made me think about the story I was once told about how the difference between evolving and revolving is an R. When we keep doing or believing the same thing repeatedly, then we are not evolving. It is as if we are trapped in one of those revolving doors, which we have often seen in a department store. We are just revolving through life and not evolving.
It is reassuring to remember we do not have to believe in or agree to the same things for our entire lives. As we grow and evolve, what we believe should also change. What we believe is in our minds. Those beliefs only have power over us as long as we agree that they are true and give them power in our lives. When we realize they no longer need to reside in our mind, then we can say to them, “you are no longer true” and release them from our Book of Law.
There have been times in my life when I have tried to hold to agreements from my past, which I no longer really agree with and all I have experienced is suffering. Then I have to ask myself, “Why are you causing yourself to suffer?” I try to look at the belief that is causing me suffering. If I no longer believe in it, then I let it go. Sometimes I have found that I hold on to it because it feels familiar. It is like wearing a sweater that has holes in it and worn out spaces. It is familiar, but it has served its purpose.
God speaks to you through your heart, so follow your heart. When go where our heart is leading us, even when it is into the unfamiliar, we will always be met with love. When you follow your internal GPS system (your intuition), you will never get lost. You will always find your way along a path of ever-unfolding love and growth. You will find yourself avoiding the revolving doors and constantly walking a journey of evolution and growth. Sometimes r’s are important, but when they block your evolution, they are of no use in your life.
