It’s funny how good things can end up being bad and visa versa. Take rejection for example. In relationships of any sort rejection feels bad and is humbling. We’ve all been rejected at some point, at work, friends, family, lovers. Think back, how did it turn out? Was that rejection a blessing in disguise? It always is.
With so much crap programmed into our heads most people don’t know what’s really good for them and chase dead ends rather than be patiently peaceful while waiting for the right connections. It’s OK, we all do it. Life has a rejection protection mechanism built into the fabric of the universe. When things aren’t really supposed to work out, they don’t. Since most of us think we know what’s best by acting persistent to a fault, the physics of rejection demands that it stings enough to force us into a different track. Sometimes in creative pursuits rejection is a signal to try another approach or persist through the challenges, but in relationships it’s a clear sign to jump off the bus and looks for a new ride. Next time you feel rejected step back and give thanks. Relax into the wisdom of Spirit’s guidance then get on with your life.
