When a person loses a job due to a lay-off, it can feel tough to adjust and figure out what to do next. Big questions might loom like, “Why me? Why did I get fired? What did I do wrong?” Or anger and resentment may boil over toward the company for making such a decision in the first place.
Whatever the human picture, there is a spiritual place one can go to find peace and direction. There doesn’t need to be suffering, remorse, anger or fear. A lay-off can be turned into a move-on—moving onto something better.
It’s helpful to remember that God is the head Employer over all, that the spiritually minded man lives in a divine economy where laws of justice and fairness prevail, that there is a good job for everyone, and that God’s law of progress is always moving us upward and onward to ever-increasing expressions of productivity, worth and value.
The key to making this demonstration is to mentally live in the divine economy.
The divine economy is a state of Mind where Love and Truth reign in consciousness. Love looks for the good and sees it. Truth sees enough good to go around for everyone and proves it.
The counterfeit to the divine economy is a material sense of economy which is prone to lack, misery and suffering. It’s an impoverished state of mortal thought that focuses on the negative, sees reason to suffer and makes excuses for lack of progress. It’s not a fun place to be. And it doesn’t help.
We can all make a choice to live in the divine economy and experience its benefits.
And a first step after facing a lay-off and wondering what to do next could be choosing to turn that lay-off into a move-on. Rather than looking back and harboring regrets or contempt, one can choose to look forward and use the opportunity to advance.
With God, there are no limits to good. There are only infinite opportunities to experience more of it.
A lay-off may feel shattering at the time, but it’s a temporal condition that can be overcome and left behind. God’s law of progress is always at work opening new doors and unfolding progressive possibilities. And divine Love is sure to open the perfect door for you right when you need it.
