“Therefore, The Way of Transformation does not require you to change your circumstances. It merely requires that you change your attitude toward them by recognizing that they are harmless, by recognizing that you have called all things to yourself.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 14, Page 170)
It is very reassuring to me to realize that I have called all things to myself. If I like what I have called, then all is well. If I don’t, then I have the means to change it. We really do have that power.
Attitudinal shifts can be easy. It just requires that we make up our minds for a change. When we pray, we get inklings of the things that need to change in our lives. And then we make the tiny effort required to turn things around to something better—if we are not satisfied with what we have. But often, the only thing that needs to change is our attitude. We need to realize that God’s way is right and good, and when we follow the best and highest that we know, all is well.
Our circumstances may not seem harmless to us, but when we change our attitude toward what transpires, we can see the benefit in what we have been through. We know more now, we love more now—and so attitudinal change is inevitable as we progress along life’s highway.
Make up our mind to alter what we don’t like. We will be helped.
