For Those Who Feel Defeated
Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
The message for today is for those who feel defeated. There may come a time in your life where you feel the whole world is against you and you feel you are left alone to fight on for what you believe, yet despite all your strivings; good intentions; and prayers for help, the situation and condition you find yourself in seems to worsen. You begin to question the very things in which you believe and have so boldly defended. You feel your faith weakening and you begin to entertain thoughts of failure, defeat, and surrender to the enemy. If you find yourself in this place, my friend, do not give in to defeat, but rather prepare yourself for a transformation, for in any life that is to mature, grow, and progress, there shall be change and a reorganization of your beliefs. This is a time for preparation—for the emergence of a more perfected soul.
When you come to the realization that your life has stalled, that your hoped for future plans have not materialized as you had envisioned, it is time to re-evaluate where you are and where you are going. You may look at this feeling of emptiness like a vessel that has been cleaned out and ready to be filled with fresh water. Change is needed in your habits and routines. A problem cannot be solved by the same thinking that created it and so a new mind is what is needed. Look at the world in a different way and open up your mind to receive new insights and considerations. Start asking questions and be open to the answers that present themselves to you in ways you have not considered. Answers come in many packages. Therefore be more sensitive to the pointers and signposts that lead to the “soul-utions.”
Perhaps it is time for you to take a break from all the perplexities that weigh heavy on your mind. Reversion and renewal may be the medicine needed to clear the mind and to see more clearly where you are headed and where your treasure lies. There is great value in the symbolism of the “40 days in the wilderness.” Sincere communion with your Heavenly Father may be what is needed to work out the confusion in your mind. Begin to live as if all things are in order and amplify the positive while you de-emphasize the burdens of the present. Switch the focus of your mind on the things that bring joy and elevate your spirit to new heights. This is the place where the new mind comes.
Develop your inner strength and introspection with the help of your Indwelling Spirit. All the pieces of the puzzle shall come together as you lay the framework for unfolding of the new mind. It is within you to discover the power of Father’s will.
Peace to you Dear One,
