Seek the Lesson


Every experience, without exception, plays an active role in your awakening.

“The more we practice with our own struggles and relate to them as our vehicle to awakening, the less we will judge our struggles as defects. Likewise in relationships: the more we can remember that others also have the wish to learn from their struggles, the less we will judge others as defective when we see them caught in their distress.” 
~Ezra Bayda~

When in the midst of a challenge, it can sometimes be difficult to recognize the lesson or the gift within the situation. One way to open yourself to receive clarity is to include any challenges that arise in your daily gratitude moments saying, “I’m grateful that this situation with so-and-so has occurred. Even though I may not see the gift contained within it yet, I know that there is one and am grateful for the opportunity to grow from this experience.”

If you are fortunate enough to recognize the lesson while the situation is in play, own it, accept it and embrace it. Observe the aspects that you already handle consciously as well as those that may require a purposeful and mindful approach in order to rise above the mechanisms of the ego. When you seek the lesson, your growth is assured. Everything and everyone in this vast universe conspires to assist in your awakening.

Resistance keeps challenging situations in play. Acceptance creates the space in which a transformation can occur.
