9 ~ "This Law teaches us that we all have challenges and those challenges are designed to help strengthen our Light within. This law also teaches us to compare our problems to others' problems and put everything into its proper perspective. No matter how bad we perceive our situation to be, there is always someone who is in a worse position. Everything is relative."
Sometimes, I'll be lamenting about how tired my feet are, and lo and behold, I'll see a person with below the knee amputations, not just on one leg, but on both! Or I'll be complaining about an 'eye headache' and I'll run into a person who is blind and can not see anything, let alone complain about having to read too much. This law helps us to put everything into its proper perspective!
Who am I to bitch and moan about Life's little mishaps when there are hundreds ~ indeed ~ possibly hundreds of thousands of people who have it much worse than I do? How do I dare complain about sore muscles, sore feet, or sore legs when there are those who struggle to simply stand alone on a daily basis? Everything is relative, as the principle teaches us, and for every complaint we have on a daily basis, there are those in this world, in our Universe, who suffer more.
Everything and everyone is connected, and we all have our burdens and crosses to bear, but even when we are in the deepest depths of despair, we can be certain of one thing: there is someone out there who suffers more greatly, who suffers deeper than we do. It's important to remember that simple fact in the big scheme of things. We have so much to be grateful for and it's important to remember our gratitude on a daily basis. It keeps up connected.
Peace, Love, and Light, my friends ~
