I had a woman tell me that she was feeling depressed and discouraged, but not to give it much credence because, as she said, “It was normal for her to feel that way.”
If our sense of “normal” is less than ideal, it might be time to revise our concept of “normal!”
From God’s point of view, “normal,” is man’s spiritual state of existence. To feel heavy, depressed, sick and weary is not normal. These are mortal mind lacking views of reality that can be healed and replaced with joy, buoyancy, health and strength.
As a child of God, it’s normal for thought to be in a good place. It’s normal to be inspired, to see the good and to experience the goodness of God on a regular basis.
In the human experience, trials come, challenges appear, and there may be times when the horizon looks dark and prospects dim, but these low moments are temporary. There is always light coming from God to take the darkness away, and answers coming from Mind to solve the problems at hand.
Darkness and suffering are not to become the norm. They are to be overcome, so that the norm of expressing God’s light and joy is one’s regular experience.
So, live a “normal” life today of inspiration, joy and boundless freedom! This is the way God made you, and Christ is within to make it happen.
You have all it takes to live a “normal” life of health, harmony and peace.
