Hugh Prather once made an analogy of our lives as a movie being shown in a theater, a movie that we wrote. And if we are part of God, this scripting is actually true. And we are a part of God. He lives in our depths, and He lives through us.
If we can see the drama of our lives as something meaningful, always attuned to the Universal, then we are less likely to become upset by the vicissitudes of our daily lives. We are not promised a smooth walk in every particular. It is true that as we attune ourselves to God’s plan, our lives lose some of the devastating drama that is egoic. And eventually the ego falls away, leaving us soothed and at peace.
Our understanding of God is often flawed, for we blame Him when things go wrong. But our free will is at issue here, and He would never take that from us.
Be at peace today. We are simply watching a movie unfurl in the theater that is our world.
