There is one energy from whom we can never be separated. That is source itself.
Some people say that a person can behave so badly that God – or source – withdraws. This is inaccurate and it is not true. If God withdrew, as the source of our existence, we would cease to be. But as God is in everything, He/She cannot withdraw from His/Her self. It is our own actions that puts layers of consciousness between source and ourselves.
When the need for help is so intense that we will brook no opposition – then we call out to source to help us, and we succeed in getting through all the interim layers of debris that are obscuring our connection to our own source. Help arrives. Whether we accept it or not is up to us. But it is not our imagination: it is a reality – it is the energy of help – some faiths call this the energy of redemption.
This help is unconditional, but it cannot instantly correct a situation you wish had not occurred. When energy has manifested in the physical, the situation has solidified. Source can help you correct the energy, and this becomes a working relationship of you and source as you move forward to work with the situation where it is now, and what can be done energetically to change it going forward. You are deepening your relationship with source as the two of you work together so that right thought and right action can manifest in your life.
People can sometimes abandon us, but source never can.
People come and go in our lives, whether or not we’ve done something “wrong” or “right.” When we first experience their leaving, we can sometimes feel we should withdraw and nurse our wounds. This is a wrong attitude, for it can set up barriers to our enjoying the next person who enters our personal world.
When a person leaves, this is a time to re-examine our understanding of the difference between the eternal connection we have with source, and the temporal one we have with other human beings. Source is eternal – humanity is not. And here on earth, in our third dimension, nothing lasts forever; even the seasons come and go. So it helps greatly to look at relationships as lovely flowers in the garden of our life. A flower blossoms, shares its beauty and fragrance with us, then wilts and dies and another flower blossoms elsewhere to claim our attention. It is not a shock to our system to experience this natural coming and going of life in the garden, and it should not be a shock to experience this in our own lives as well. Of course, you could be in relationship with someone who is very solid – like a great oak tree, or a great rock – and that relationship may well last your entire life. Or it may not.
The secret, then, is learning to rely on the one energy who can never withdraw – source. And from that point of view you can then enjoy the beauty of each moment and each relationship while it is flowering, and not to be sad when its natural energy takes it away from us.
