My prayer through challenges

When there are challenging times, it’s always an opportunity to grow, to learn.
I’ve noticed that some of these times are usually transitions- those are the experiences we humans fear, for the uncertainty of what lies on the other side is too big to comprehend. Events of transition are birth and death, accidents, changes, twilight hours, falling asleep and waking up, and in children also growth spurts. Usually we feel uncomfortable with transitions. We don’t know how to act or behave, and when we are the ones supporting another who is going through a transition, we often lack the big picture, since we are too focused on our own internal process, which may include very strong emotions such as fear or anxiety.
To bring this down, Theo is having a growth spurt and at the same time I am going through some shaky times myself. He’s having it hard and I’m not at the moment the most centered person myself. Since sometimes my patience is short, and this is not helpful because he can sense my despair immediately, all I can do (for I can’t do anything really) is place a prayer. Make this prayer be bigger than me, bigger than this moment or situation. In tonight’s case, make this prayer of having infinite patience to hold him (and comfort him) all the way through and keep cool while doing it. This prayer will serve as my anchor, when I start to lose it, I refocus on this prayer again. Because I become powerless and let go of control, I can come across this ocean.
My prayer is now that we can keep the consciousness and the spirit through all tests in life.
Blessed be thy challenge
In humility,
Sukhdev Kaur
