“The Universe is the handwriting of God, and it is both self-organizing and self-correcting. Where there is lack, the Universe is already planning to remove it from your circumstances. That is the Law of Divine Compensation. The only thing that can deactivate the Law is if you have more faith in the reality of lack than in the reality of the Law.” from The Law of Divine Compensation by Marianne Williamson,
I’ve started to read Marianne Williamson‘s new book The Law of Divine Compensation. I find I fall into reading MW’s books easily. I think this stems from having read A Return to Love based on the principles of A Course in Miracles years ago. This became my bible and MW my teacher. I’ve read all her books. I believe this is one of the reasons why I can fall into moments of synchronicity. The main message for me in her teachings is to put love over fear in any situation. It’s my mantra. Through beautiful moments of synchronicity, I got to meet and work with MW when she was in Sydney for the Hay House I Can Do It Seminar at Darling Harbour in 2011. The whole experience was magical. I also got to take lots of photos, as below -
So, this morning, I’m on the train reading Marianne Williamson’s latest book; page 20 “In any instant, regardless of what has happened in the past, the universe has arranged and is continuing to arrange infinite possibilities for you to prosper. If you cannot see this now – if despair and anxiety hang like a veil before your eyes, preventing you from mustering any faith in God at all – then in this moment lean on mine.”
The word “lean” bounced back at me. It’s a word that has been PopPiNg up here, there and everywhere this morning! So I reflect on the word lean. I thought about it; as we lean on each other “one mind joined with another, regardless of their position in time or space, can remove whatever chains would bind us”. So, as with all things, when we share our troubles or enjoy our blessings with others it’s a comfort and a witnessing.
Words have power. Why is the word “lean” so prominent this morning? The word conveys a relaxed image and one where you’re not taking energy from the one you are leaning on. It’s light. And so my mind wanders when I realise it’s my station and I need to get off this train. I collect my belongings, go towards the doors and wait for the train to stop; still thinking about the word lean. There right in front of me, eye to eye, is this sign “Do not lean on the doors”. (The italics are mine!)
Ok. So it’s ok to lean on others but not on the doors. What else about the doors? If I lean on others and ask for help, I wait for doors to open (or close) and I need to step back and witness the doors opening and closing, then I take action. Yes? I’m still not clear … On my return home on another train, I figure I would take a photo of the sign and post it on my blog. It’s a similar train, however, all signs of warning on this train are different and do not have the word lean …
I don’t usually hang on one word like this. Obviously, it’s come up for me because of certain uncertainties … so here it is. Any enlightenment here would be appreciated! I’m looking forward to moving on and reading the rest of the book.
PS: Dare I now mention that after writing this and ready to press “publish”, doors and keys to doors are a big issue and I now remember they have been for last couple of days! …
