Today’s Prayer to passage will be from the book “Tuesday’s with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson” by Mitch Albom.
Today I pray, “Dear God, I am in the final stages of letting go of a part of my life that I attributed so much significance toward: Finding, being with, and creating a lifelong commitment with “The One”. I had been given so many signs and symbols from the universe that I had met the one, and I had. Only, I had not called into consideration the power of free will and choice. Every force of external belief led me to believe that I must remain committed to this one partner who was destined to be with me, and I with him, even in the darkest and most desperate of times. And what I hadn’t even taken notice of was that these were all mere external forces, not internal truths. And now, as I lay bare, letting go, I can only remain in the wonderment of my own inner truth. What’s next? What’s now? What has all of this meant, really? I only know with certainty that my life is off the charts. I have the most brilliant and amazing life. And in THIS inner truth, I am available for “The One” who recognizes just how lucky he is to be a part of it. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“Accept who you are; and revel in it.”
Tomorrow I will go to my cherished friend to be in his physical presence, and he in mine. We have been physically separated for exactly 75 days. We have not spoken with one another for 63 days. I will go to him tomorrow, to gather all of my belongings, which are in storage in his garage (as I have been living out a of suitcase for 75 days). I will load a moving truck to move my physical belongings from his garage. I have left him four voice mail messages, sent him one greeting card for Thanksgiving, and sent him one gift for Christmas. I have heard nothing from him in that timeframe. No response.
It is time for me to go to him and load a truck. It is time for me to tell him only that I am complete, and to offer him the opportunity to have a completion conversation with me for his own peace of mind, to balance his own unbalanced karma. As it pains me to think that he will need to return in his next lifetime to repay the debt of the gravely imbalanced karma, I will offer him a Divine opportunity to complete it in my presence. I have completed and balanced my karma, and there is no need for me to return in a future lifetime to balance it, as this is complete for me. He may very well have balanced his karma in his own ways while we have been separated. I have hope and faith that this has, instead, taken place.
What I do know with certainty is that I accept who I am and the very difficult work I have done as I follow my Divine path. And I now revel in this. I will go to him in complete peace with this work I have accomplished. I am powerful in this. I am free in this. And I revel in the glory of my continuing Divine calling. I now look ahead for “The One”, as I know that I may very well be my own “One” unto myself, yet I still believe in Love and Partnership. We will join one another in Our Divine Calling. And I look forward to meeting the one who recognizes just how lucky he is to be a part of it.
