Once again, I am asking you to give us one important word to guide us through the next two days as we enter a new work week, a new month, and new energy. What word of advice and guidance do you suggest?
My Dear Ones, I have already instituted the idea of patience and that must remain your overall secret weapon as you do your inner work, reside in the world and seek evolution, spiritual and otherwise. It must be your ready weapon of choice, no matter what you encounter or what accosts you. The next word of advice, and also a most necessary component of personal and evolutionary growth, is: PERSEVERANCE. Without perseverance, no matter what presents itself, you will eventually find your self sitting patiently by the wayside. But to what end?
To persevere means to continually pick your self up, dust or dry your self off, pick up your heavy feet and take another step. Perseverance encompasses turning your eyes always forward to the light at the end of the tunnel, to the horizon, or to the inner sense of knowing that you are on the right track. Perseverance, in tandem with patience, will afford you the steady calmness that you crave in order to take a journey that is always anchored, though you may not always see clearly or feel that you are gaining ground. These two important aspects of growth-oriented individuals and seekers, of pursuers of truth and goodness, will remain constant once you invite them to travel with you on your personal journey.
In perseverance will you find strength. In perseverance will you find fuel. Even if it is only enough to take one step forward, so will it be enough for one day. Patience and perseverance, one on either side of you as they take your arms in theirs, will give you what you need for the inner journey and the outer journey alike. Trusty and steady companions, with the forces of nature imbued in them, they will reconnect you with your own forces of nature. For you will recognize this natural energy inside you once they trigger its awakening, and then you will flow calmly and steadily once again.
Patiently persevere in your inner work, in your outer work, and in your pursuit of all that is offered as you live your life upon that earth, tapping into the greater interconnected energy of all things, one step at a time. Don’t give up; keep going!
