A: Before answering this question a little back story: The Facebook post was an appeal for prayer about the kidnapping of more girls in Nigeria. The Art & Practice of Living with Nothing and No One Against You is a component of The Q Effect spiritual development program. It helps us realize and reinforce that life is not happening to us, that outer circumstances do not dictate our life's journey, and that we can consciously create the life of our choosing.
There is no question that this was, and continues to be, a horrific act of injustice against innocents. It's tempting to believe that there are perpetrators 'out there' seeking to do us harm. Events in Nigeria certainly support such beliefs. It's important to recognize, however, that this was not an act against the individuals, but against change and perceived loss of power. The girls were kidnapped from school. In many developing countries, women are still seen as second-class citizens, unworthy to be educated. Educating girls threatens the traditional status quo of male domination, even though it's been proven that it benefits the country as a whole. The kidnappers undoubtedly fear the loss of the traditional hierarchy that placed them at the top.
So what can this mean for us? Often we perceive someone is against us because we have not yet realized that we have an attachment that we think is being threatened. Perhaps we can instead see it an opportunity for letting go. We get to stand in our Truth that as the embodiment of One Power and One Presence, we not only choose what we create in life, but also how we experience what comes our way. We can choose to be in a place of victimhood, or we can tap into our Divine Power and be a stand for Truth in Consciousness. Check out Rev Jennifer's talk below that speaks to this.
