7. The Principle of Beauty

My best times are when I experience a certain unity in my thoughts, when everything seems to fit together, and I have a clear understanding of where I’m going and what I’m doing. You know what I mean, don’t you?

But then some difficulty or burden creeps in and spoils the “wholeness” of that state of mind. One day things just seem like they’re falling into place, and the next, they’re falling apart. Why is that? Why does the feeling of unity have to be so ephemeral?

The mind of God is one of eternal wholeness, a mind of infinite meaning and understanding. His is the mind that created the binding forces of the universe, the order and the continuous movement towards the fulfillment of His divine purpose.

We easily lose vision, at times growing near-sighted and impatient when things don’t seem to be going our way. We lose sight of the fact that God is using every moment of every thought and every feeling to accomplish His plan. Your best chance of hanging on to that “unified” feeling is to see yourself as a vital part of God’s plan.

When things seem to be falling apart, try to widen your vision to include yourself as part of a greater plan.
