“May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
that behind the facade of your life
there is something beautiful and eternal happening.”
Each of us comes to this planet with a specific purpose in mind. Typically, we choose one main lesson to work on in a given lifetime. It presents itself in myriad forms until it is transformed into empowerment. Observe the repetitive circumstances of your life. What type of situation brings up a “not this again!” type of reaction? The fact that a challenge has returned means only that there is more to learn from it.
Many run from the insights that are available to them. They complain, get lost in the story or blame others; however, there is great beauty waiting to be discovered by those who have the courage to turn and face their shadows. Sometimes you have to be who you aren’t in order to discover who you are. We are meant to engage with life, make mistakes and awaken to our inner wisdom. When the lesson has been integrated we can leave it behind with gratitude.
The moments that shape our lives are intense – intense in action, emotion or circumstance. They have a tendency to wake us from the slumber of complacency and remind us of our higher purpose – to be a living expression of the Divine.
