In the American Heritage Dictionary, the first definition of the word fortunate is favored by or involving good luck or fortune; lucky. However, if you go on to read the more obscure usages of fortunate, we realize that the word has derivatives that are more likely to mean auspicious (would likely be successful in the future) or favorable. What is the difference in the two meanings?
The first meaning would give you the idea that a person—any person—could simply be lucky enough to be fortunate and prosperous. The second meaning however gives us the feeling that the fortunate is one who is a combination of pleasing to be around and gives one the sense that he or she continues to work toward a better life; albeit in relationship, work, or finance and has the capacity to be prosperous in the future.
The reason why I honed in on this particular word today is because I have a friend who believes he is simply unfortunate and unlucky in all ways. This leads him to distrust his own instincts and especially any leading from his soul. He called me a couple of days ago and was distraught. He has been searching for a job for quite some time. He finds one, decides its not good then leaves. He finds a better job, then the company closes. This has happened about six times in the last six years. To most people, this man would seem to be unlucky. But I don’t see his life as unlucky.
He is made in the image of God. His mind and his creative power to make the best life and a prosperous one, at that, is within him, as it is in all of us. What he lacks is not luck. He lacks the positive input to teach himself truth at all costs and to trust in who he is spiritually.
If wealthy people lose their money, they usually do not stay down long before they are wealthy again. Why? Wealthy people have a sense of knowing that they deserve wealth. Is this what one would call selfish? If you think this to be true, perhaps, that’s why you lack in finances. What prince or princess (child of the King) is poor, unless he, like the Prodigal Son, decides to squander his fortune and is too embarrassed to come back to the Source to regain his stature and a robes of velvet?
I’m here to tell you today, if you have a dream or an idea about your future that is a viable one, you have the capacity to achieve it. Seeds that you plant in the earth don’t ever get spit out by the earth. The earth grows what you plant. If you plant negativity, the earth will give you weeds. If you plant positive ideas and truth, you will likely receive all the good fruit from a tree that took a little longer to grow but is well rooted and grounded and thrives in the sunlight of Good.
Today, be fortunate!
