Once you have started upon a path of change and growth, remember each morning that it is a path of vitality, new life, and new circumstance that you seek. That it is a path of renewal, rejuvenation and connecting with your spirit so that your true self may finally fully live. Notice how the seasons show you the steady way to fulfillment, from the dead of winter to the fullness of summer’s bloom, and how change is continuous, for fall arrives annually to begin the cycle again. So is it with human beings as well, the cycle of opportunity and change is endless and thus always in the cards, and any day along the cyclical path is a good day to begin anew.
Your greatest challenge today is you. Nothing in the world compares to the challenges you present to yourself. How do you feel about you today? Are you in balance, aligned with your spirit, keeping your body healthy and your mind alert? When you grow despondent, depressed, down on yourself, look no further. All that you need to face, and all the solutions to life’s problems begin and end within. You are your own cure.
Life’s lessons are often presented in abrupt form but more often than not in repeated form, in repetitive behaviors, do-overs, or vague wanderings that lead nowhere. When lessons come in abrupt ways, such as a major jolt that shifts you out of your comfort zone, look with awe at how life is knocking you over the head. When lessons come in repetitive ways look with equal awe at how life expects you to wake up and find a new path. Whether abrupt or repetitive, life’s lessons yearn to be embraced, for they are showing you the way that your Soul wants to go, a new path of your evolution, asking you to step up to a new phase in Earth School, to advance to a new level. And of course you are up to the challenge. What choice do you really have?
Let not the vicissitudes of life, nor your own actions, get you down or keep you from your greater potential. Forge ahead through thick and thin to arrive at your own truth, to discover your own soul’s journey, to meet your own destiny. Is not life grand in the way it challenges? Is it not productive in how it decides what is most important? And does it not always seem to know exactly what is needed? There is no randomness. Everything allows you to complete your journey through Earth School in the most satisfying and productive manner. In both large and small ways everything is meaningful.
Relax your mind. Relax your body. Relax your hold on thinking you have to do everything. Relax the tension in your muscles, and then go deeper than that. From your toes to the top of your head, and everything in between, relax. Life is not out to destroy you but to support you. Life is not out to stop you but to push you. Life is not out to punish you but to encourage you. Life is full of lessons, but the biggest one may be to learn to just relax and wait for life to show you what comes next rather than thinking you have to have it all figured out ahead of time, or that you have to direct it. There may just be another approach you haven’t thought of. Maybe you just need to relax, let down your guard and just experience it. It might be that simple. Indeed, there may just be another way after all.
