"Divine Mind is the only cause or Principle of existence""Hrrumph!", I thought when I learned of the business problem, "If God [the Divine Mind] is really the only cause, why do these problems come up?" I was frustrated and almost doubtful that statement was true for me at that moment. But then I thought, "If that statement is true, I should stop feeling annoyed and be alert to understand and witness what God is working to accomplish."
This new perspective replaced my frustration with a sense of calm expectancy. I knew that God, Mind, was only capable of doing good and blessing His creation. So if God was the only cause, the only result could be a blessing. I mentally put the problem in God's hands and was actually curious to see how God was going to resolve the situation. Within a day I was led to take some steps in a new direction that unexpectedly and quickly solved everything. Even better, the new solution left me in a better position than I had been in before the problem came up! The thorny situation proved to be a blessing!
