Me: Hey God.
God: Hello…..
Me: I’m falling apart. Can you put me back together?
God: I would rather not.
Me: Why?
God: Because you aren’t a puzzle.
Me: What about all of the pieces of my life that are falling down onto the ground?
God: Let them stay there for a while. They fell off for a reason. Take some time and decide if you need any of those pieces back.
Me: You don’t understand! I’m breaking down!
God: No – you don’t understand. You are breaking through. What you are feeling are just growing pains. You are shedding the things and the people in your life that are holding you back. You aren’t falling apart. You are falling into place. Relax. Take some deep breaths and allow those things you don’t need anymore to fall off of you. Quit holding onto the pieces that don’t fit you anymore. Let them fall off. Let them go.
Me: Once I start doing that, what will be left of me?
God: Only the very best pieces of you.
Me: I’m scared of changing.
God: I keep telling you – YOU AREN’T CHANGING!! YOU ARE BECOMING!
Me: Becoming who?
God: Becoming who I created you to be! A person of light and love and charity and hope and courage and joy and mercy and grace and compassion. I made you for more than the shallow pieces you have decided to adorn yourself with that you cling to with such greed and fear. Let those things fall off of you. I love you! Don’t change! … Become! Become! Become who I made you to be. I’m going to keep telling you this until you remember it.
Me: There goes another piece.
God: Yep. Let it be.
Me: So … I’m not broken?
God: Of course Not! – but you are breaking like the dawn. It’s a new day. Become!!!

Relaxation

Practicing relaxation techniques can help calm our
days when they get too stressful. It’s easy to miss out on enjoying a day in our
life if our minds are filled with worrisome thoughts and our bodies are tense
with stress. A day lived is not coming back and we should not lose it in this
way.

For starters, eliminate some things. Avoid running around
frantically trying to do too many things. Slow down and move with an easy
manner.

If you cannot avoid problems and busy days, get in the habit of
pausing to breathe slowly and deeply. Try to continue with easy breathing as you
continue on with your tasks.

If you can get a short break
create a detailed peaceful retreat in your imagination and go there to calm your
feelings. Picture it in vivid detail. Perhaps a comfortable room with soft
music, a quiet place in the woods, a placid lake, a beautiful garden with
flowers, trees, birds. Perhaps such a place already exists. While you are there,
let go of everything except where you are.

Create a personal selection of
calming words like serene, tranquil, peaceful and repeat them to yourself as you
move through your day.

After work perhaps you can have a relaxing pastime
such as walking or listening to music.

“There is however, a true music of
nature – the song of the birds, the whisper of leaves, the ripple of waters upon
a sandy shore, the wail of wind or sea.” –
