"There's no need for stress'in, we're just learning our lesson."
When we in our helplessness reach the point where we see we are unable of ourselves to do anything, and then call upon God to aid us; when we are ready to show our willingness to abandon our own plans, our own opinions, our own sense of what ought to be done under the circumstances, and have no fear as to the consequences-then God's law will take possession of and govern the whole situation. We cannot expect, however, that this law will operate in our behalf if we indulge any preconceived ideas as to how it should do its work. We must completely abandon our own view of things and say, "Not my will, but thine, be done."5 If this step is taken with confidence and a full trust that God is capable of taking care of every circumstance, then no power on earth can prevent the natural, rightful, and legitimate adjustment of all discordant conditions. –Adam H. Dickey, God's Law of Adjustment.
You are progressing, no matter how much or how little you know of Truth. "Seek, and ye shall find." The very fact that you are reading these words is evidence that you are seeking. Whether you have been seeking for a year, or for an hour, you are better now than you were before. Your life has more of blessing, less of lack; more of health, less of ailing; more of harmony, less of unhappiness. –Emmet Fox

I am grateful for the lessons in my life.
Every encounter is a chance to learn. I see with eyes of curiosity, wondering what insight I may gain from each interaction. I release judgment and replace it with acceptance and gratitude. When I find patterns I want to change or reinforce, I open myself to Spirit’s guidance. God shows me the next right action. Lifelong learning leaves me fulfilled and at peace.
A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain, but knowledge is easy for one who understands.—Proverbs 14:6

Test drive this affirmation by Florence Scovel Shinn and enjoy a thrilling weekend of abundance.”
From Christina Robohm:
I'm working this weekend so thank you! Something I've noticed is that I hold back my offerings because I don't want to bother others, assuming that I can affect their whole day and life if I offer something they don't want. Phew, thank goodness I release them and know that all who I encounter are grounded, empowered and won't take anything personally.
What do you mean?
He went to that new ShaktaMonkey Yoga Class with Guru Yogi Wanda. All his friends told him how spiritual it was, and how it would bring him closer to God.
That sounds good.
Well, when he showed up, everyone was wearing exotic ponchos and yoga pants, and he had on cargo shorts and an ill-fitting t-shirt. After several complaints, the guru took him aside and told him to go home, pray, and talk to God about how to dress for next week’s class.
Although Comfort didn’t find the class very spiritual, there were a lot of hot women in attendance, so he went home and meditated and talked to God. (like a good Chief Engineer.)
Then what happened?
Well, he returned to class the next week wearing the same cargo shorts and ill-fitting t-shirt that he wore the week before. As you can imagine, Guru Yogi Wanda was visibly upset and took him aside. She asked Comfort why he didn’t talk to God about how to appropriately dress for this sacred time in the sanctuary.
Comfort smiled and told her that he had spoken with God.
Guru Yogi Wanda, now angry and confused, yelled “What did God say?!”
Comfort said, “God told me he had never been to this sanctuary, or this class, so he had no idea what I should wear.”
