I chose to post this under the Law of Relativity rather than the Intuition section because of the overall theme of my AHA moment. I have always been taught to listen to the Spirit, and to discern good from bad situations, but I feel that it was not until recently that I’ve conciously tried to pay attention to my feelings and impressions.
Today I was asked by someone to watch a youtube video about some “political” things. She wanted my opinion. I figured that because of the nature of the subject it was going to be one of those “doom and gloom” pieces. I instantly felt “icky” as I watched the first part of it…even if some of the things that were said may have been true. I didn’t finish the whole thing, and knew that the overall purpose of it was to scare people. In an effort to change the subject in my mind, I began typing http://www.lds and the link for http://www.ldsmag popped up. I wasn’t sure what that site was…I just wanted something uplifting and feel good. I clicked on the ldsmag link and a website that my Dad had actually sent me a link for a few weeks ago popped up. It was a bunch of LDS youtube videos OF ALL THINGS!! I clicked on the first link entitled “His Hands”. I hadn’t taken the time when my Dad sent the link to watch any of the videos that were on the page. So to replace the negative ICK that I had just semi watched, I got 6 minutes of a beautiful video of the Savior backed by a beautiful song that so perfectly epitomizes his life and ministry.
So for my Aha moment… I realized that it really doesn’t matter what is going on around us. This time can be an equally GOOD experience for me and my family. I also realized that the feelings I received through watching the first video and also seeing the comments to it that came from a certain “type” of people (that I will choose to keep away from me and my family), and watching the second video were as different as night and day. I realized that I am so blessed to have the Savior to follow, and that if I follow Him and those who are His servants here on the Earth, I have nothing to fear. Instead, I have an opportunity to teach my family that when times are a little scary, they have someone to turn to who will always help and understand. I’m so grateful for typing in that link…which sent me to another link, that reminded me of these truths.
