Relationships often bring the most painful and unhealed aspects of our life out of the shadows. They are powerful teachers. When you don’t get what you want from someone (or from a situation), it eventually motivates you to awaken.
Your happiness is your own responsibility. When people say “he makes me so upset” or “she hurt me”, they have given away their power to another and momentarily forgotten that everything serves a purpose. Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.
Before spiritual awakening we tend to see our experiences as good or bad. After spiritual awakening, we see them only as opportunities to evolve.
Today, my intention is to enter silence – not through conscious effort, but by allowing life to be what it is.
