This post is part 2 of a glimpse into upcoming book “The Apryl Michelle Brown Story.. More than a Body.” If you missed part 1, read it here “I Am Not Afraid Of My Greatness!!!!
A tree that looses its branches, in a storm, never stands in the middle of the forest, or at the edge of the sea screaming, “Why God ?”
“Why God ?”, it just simply stands, and says… “Although my landscape has changed, I am still available to produce oxygen, and to be used for the purpose intended. Allow your light to shine brightly through me”.
That’s exactly what I say to the universe, “Even though the landscape of my body has changed, I am still available to produce hope and inspiration. Allow your light to shine brightly through me.”
How I Cope?
There is one thing I always tell people, when asked, how I cope?
I tell them when the shyt hit the fan, and I knew I was losing my limbs, the only thing that saved me (besides this being my journey), was [tweetthis] I knew that nothing was happening to me. I knew it was all happening for me[/tweetthis] for a higher vibration to be used for my spiritual purpose (this piece of information saved my life.)
If I had to believe that I was punished, and being judged by God, it would be a whole different dance for my life right now.
It is impossible for anyone to cope with anything if they believe they are simultaneously being punished.
I am so thankful for all the spiritual work I lunged into once I left “the cult”; because that is where I received all of the great coping information.
See, when you understand purpose, you automatically understand coping.
When we are on purpose and using our life as a class (as Oprah says), and helping others, in return it helps us in a magical kind of way.
It is the magic that “helps” me cope” every moment of the day.
I wouldn’t trade anything for the magical mystery.
How and why do you cope with challenges you are faced with?
