Early this morning I was at the Hamburg airport waiting for my flight back to Frankfurt. I just finished a workshop in Schwerin, Germany. I was sitting in a coffee shop enjoying a MilchKaffee when I saw a man walking towards me with a rolling handbag, a newspaper tucked underneath his left arm, a large cup of coffee in his left hand. As he was trying to sit down his cup of coffee spilled all over the table. As he was waiting for the waiter to come over to clean the table, the spilled coffee started to glisten with golden light. The golden light then started turning into golden coins that were surrounding the man. I thought to myself “Oh my! He is receiving a financial blessing from heaven and he doesn’t even know it.” Can it really be that you can receive a blessing from heaven when you spill a cup of coffee? The answer is “Yes!”
The Divine and heaven bless us in many different ways. Sometimes the blessings come in ways that you might not even expect. You need to open your eyes to the possibility that heaven will bless you in an unusual way. If you open your eyes to the possibility of receiving blessings you will discover that everyday you are being blessed by heaven. Everyone and everything is being blessed by heaven daily. We are constantly being supported and blessed by heaven in order for us to grow and offer service. Isn’t it wonderful to know that heaven is always guiding and blessing us?
The key to realizing when you are receiving a blessing is to transform your thinking. Do not think that every disaster or everything that goes wrong in your life is bad. Master Zhi Gang Sha always says “Disaster and success happen at the same time.” This is a very important teaching to understand in your spiritual journey because it will open your eyes to understand that you can have big blessings even in times when there is a big disaster.
How can you transform your thinking? It is important to remove and transform mind sets, attitudes, beliefs, ego and attachments. Our mind blocks us from seeing the wonderful blessings that we can receive. If you see the spilled cup of coffee or water as a disaster or embarrassment you are thinking negatively. Change your thinking so that you see the spilled cup of coffee or water as a BIG blessing. Here is a practice that you can do to help you to transform your negative thinking.
