I found a prayer which I wrote at one point when I was in a dark place. I filled in the positive and the negative aspects of me and worked out how they could benefit me if I transformed them in my mind, to useful things.
I have always been more introspective than Mr Furlong.
Whether you believe in God, or Spirit or The Universe, or in re-incarnation or not, doing this little exercise might help you as it did me.
I could have been born rich and famous, poor and destitute, healthy or ill, with all the problems that these conditions bring.
But I have already done this.
Instead I was born (name) _________________________
with the good qualities of (qualities) ______________________________________________
and some obstacles like (defects) ______________________________________________
which I am able to transform into beneficial gifts of (positive essences)
so that I can become more fully accepting/grateful of my life situation than I already am.
For this, I have the One Stream of Being, and all Its aspects and attributes to help me.
