I'm a LEAFS fan, please forgive me if you're a hater, & watching them has certainly been frustrating at times.
I'm a hockey fan first, especially a supporter of Canadian hockey & I tend more now to look upon the Leafs as entertaining now - that removes SOME of the sting of their chronic losing ways. Having a spiritual overview as to what's REALLY going on & being able to ACCEPT ALL THAT IS allows me to look for the silver linings...
If you're not there, it's a useful point I bring up because the lessons apply across the board. God & his angels typically use the physical things around us to get their points across to us. These "lessons" are repeated until learned too. It can be very painful to be a Leaf fan - pushing 50 years of pain!.
However spiritual pain can last considerably longer - try many incarnations long! As long as it takes to reach levels of forgiveness, alignment, knowing or enlightenment of certain issues & change our perspective.
We can change our perspective rather instantly, to great gains, but we can change our situations permanently with forgiveness & intent put into action plans. Forgiveness clears away everything that hinders us.
Intent is the start of heading out in a whole new direction based on our lessons learned, but this must be accompanied by spiritual action for the as we know, "road to hell is paved with good intentions"
Spiritual action is different than physical action, yet both may be required.
Spiritual action must precede physical action for one stems from the other. There is a spiritual CORE PURPOSE in EVERYTHING in life. If you do not solve the spiritual core reason behind a problem, that problem persists. This is the sometimes scary truth about diseases, especially the heavy duty ones like cancers. When spiritual healers go to work directing a person with cancer for example, in healing themselves in a core spiritual issue of something such as anger, they have experienced miraculous results in the physical world of cancer disappearance...
... & now if only we could get the Leafs to think spiritually!!!
The Leafs, for now, us, fans included along with the upper management & the players, but never JUST the players. It takes two or more gathered together of like-minded people & we may begin to see changes
Actually, in the past the Leafs were approached about taking a spiritual path & rejected the help. That's ok. That's their role, their agreements. You can lead a horse to water... but they may not be in a place to recognize or to accept what's being offered & the same lesson holds true as a positive reminder to us all.
In any relationship keep in mind there are two sides to the story - in this case the collective consciousness of the fans, the apparent apathy of some players & the business goals of management, assorted spiritual curses stemming back to Harold Ballard days perhaps, as well as probably thousands of spiritual reasons under the surface with all involved are playing a part in the leafs losing. NONE of the coaching & personel changes will achieve their stated purpose of winning UNTIL THE SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS ARE EMBODIED.

Accepting all that is, is about a 'SILVER LININGS" approach to whatever comes our way. So one can look at the Leafs, Leaf Nation & management collectively, & rather than get frustrated, see it as YOUR reflection. What's good about it. What can be better. Look at the accomplishments with neew eyes. See the tremendous good that is done for charitable cause, for little kids stating out in hockey, & for the extra long golf season. Ok that was harsh, but actually having fun IS what it's really all about. In life, we can't take it all so seriously
There are great lessons here!
When we take all the current frustration away & look inward to the source of all love, then the truth cann shine a light causing all that is silver to sparkle much more .
