‘The beauty of holiness’

Are we really at the mercy of negative situations, or can a conscious understanding of God, divine Life, adjust our view, resulting in a changed situation? I had an experience some years ago, where just such a change in thought resulted in improvement.

I was driving on a fairly isolated road quite early one morning, and I needed to stop at a rest stop in a forest picnic area. As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a solitary car parked with a man sitting inside. I felt an overwhelming sense of disquiet. The uneasiness was so strong that I sat there and prayed to know what was right—to stop there or keep driving. Within a short time, I felt at peace. I got out of the car, and as I did, so did the man. He walked over and stood abnormally close to me. He started a conversation by saying I had been following him, but that wasn’t true because no one had been in front of me on the road for a while.

A friend’s ‘enemy’—my enemy, too?
