Ultimate more important than immediate.
April 2, 2017
You are important because you belong to everything that is created, but you are also wise to consider that your position within that grand creation occupies but a small corner. When you are consumed by worry and major anxieties, you are lifting yourself out of your corner of creation and assuming an importance far greater than what is due. The issues that you deal with throughout your life are only a minute speck on the horizon which represents your part in the creation. Keep all that you experience in appropriate context.
What is important to you is important to you now, but may be of considerably less significance at some time in the future. What is important for you now is not something which is always of equal importance in your lives. What is important now becomes insignificant. What seems insignificant now may become important in the future. It is like looking through a kaleidoscope—one color or shape in a corner becomes the centerpiece for something far greater with just a slight turn. Your sense of perspective of where you fit in to all of creation should give you comfort in realizing that what happens to you in the immediate is not as important as what happens to you in the ultimate.
