Yes, even when they seem to have everything: a wonderful life partner, a good solid career, a nice house and children. A few years later, they divorce, families fall apart, one suffers with depressions or a midlife-crisis. And if you ask them what happened, they will answer you: “Because something was missing…” But the question is: What is really missing here?
In my experience, that one “missing piece” (some call it the secret) people are looking for during most of their life, is simply and only this: Their own relationship with God, Divine Source.
Yes, I have had times in my life when I did not believe in any kind of God, I know how empty that feels. But then, I started praying again, I learned meditation, and I discovered the beauty of the spiritual path. And I discovered a new way of feeling happy. That feeling of true lasting inner peace comes from our connection with our Divine Source.
The only thing that is needed is our conscious awareness of our Divine Self, our alignement with our own Divine Soul. When we practice being present like this in every moment of our daily lives, we allow divine Love to transform our world.
We are spiritual beings, divine Souls, coming from a Divine Source, known as God. Since I started taking care of my relationship with God again, I became more and more aware of Spirit, of Divine Consciousness, and I have found an inner peace that nothing in the material world can ever offer.
There are no substitutes in the outside world for that sacred relationship with our Divine Self and our Divine Source. Within this feeling of Oneness, we receive a Love so tender and healing, it really fills your heart with beautiful peace: this is when you feel really whole, and happy.
What if the only “Law of Attraction” tool that is missing in our life, in truth is our own relationship with Divine Source? People try to have relationships with each other - but without having a loving relationship with our own Divine Source, how can we expect having any fulfilling and lasting relationships with others?
Many people are living in a modern world filled with material abundance, but they are still feeling unhappy, restless, seeking for "something more" to fill the void they feel inside. What is really missing, is our faith in Divine Source, our love for God, our daily relationship with God. Are we living and sharing our daily life with God? Are we bringing Divine Love into our daily life situations? Maybe, that is what is really missing most of the time: alignement with Divine Love.
We do not need another pair of shoes, or more make-up, another new shirt or a new car. Those are superficial, material substitutes. The one and only thing that can fill our hearts with true love and lasting peace, is when we take the time for prayers and meditation, when we really sit in stillness and connect with our Divine Source. It is in real communion with God that our hearts are filled with lasting love. This is what we are all longing for.
Maybe, instead of doing all the "self-improvement", the one and only thing we really need to improve and upgrade, is our personal relationship with our own Soul, with our Divine Source.
To begin with, we can accept our own Divinity, and see the Divine in others, honor the Divine in each other, and honor our Divine Source. These steps would be a beautiful shift in our consciousness; and we would feel a lot happier, better, more complete.
For all these situations, the teachings based on the book A Course in Miracles truly help a lot. Applying the techniques from that book can support the path to healing on many levels of your being.
