Sometimes a shake-up is required in order to shatter the ego’s grasp.
“Spiritual practice includes learning how to open-heartedly receive the shocks of life – the things you don’t like, the people who criticize you, the job that goes wrong, the partner that leaves, the health that fails you – whatever shakes you up.”
Everything is an opportunity to awaken. When things seem to fall apart, your soul is attempting to pivot your direction, change your perception or simply assist in breaking you free from things, people or circumstances which no longer serve your growth. You can resist, insisting that you know better what is best for you, or you can trust that there’s a higher purpose in play and honor it by being open to the message.
At the higher states of consciousness we stop seeing things as “good” or “bad”. Life simply is what it is. The awakened soul seeks to cultivate inner mastery, and that can only be achieved through practice. No matter the situation, you can be empowered, magical, loving and courageous. See challenges as opportunities to discover the best in yourself.
Today my intention is to see life as my friend.
