We are all masters in the process of awakening.
“Every moment presents a wonderful new opportunity to become more of who I am.”
Mastery is attained through experience and conscious effort. Lifetime after lifetime we work through the veils of illusion to ultimately discover the joy and grace of our true Divine nature. Everyone (yes, everyone!) is on this same journey of discovery, merely at differing stages of spiritual development.
“As much as we deny it, we still believe we’re supposed to be perfect. Our ongoing anxiety and sense of inadequacy testify eloquently to this unexamined truth. In spiritual practice, this trap takes the form of making one attempt after another to measure up to some ideal of how a spiritual practitioner is supposed to be – more calm, loving, wise or simply more together. Yet becoming truly calm and loving requires that we first see clearly the extent we still punish ourselves by clinging to ideals of perfection.”
See yourself, and everyone around you, as a work in progress. Honor the perfection in the imperfection with the knowledge that we are all in the process of awakening. Act with integrity, do your best, accept what is.
Today my intention is to move forward with confidence and ease, knowing that all is well in my future.
