Everyone who enters your life has a role to play in your growth.
“The spiritual practice of relationships is about working on ourselves only, freeing ourselves from the constricting grip of our own unhappiness. It is not the other person’s job to take our unhappiness away; our discomfort is our own responsibility. Attending to our own spiritual tasks – seeing our judgments, opinions, beliefs, demands, ad staying present with the fears out of which they all arise – frees others to move toward us. Then, when they no longer feel the need to defend, they become more willing to take care of their job. Thus joy in relationships becomes possible.”
When we are ready to heal old emotional wounds, our higher Self sends an energetic call out into the universe requesting assistance. Those who answer the call are willing to play a role (typically adversarial) to bring the energy of the wound to the service. These loving souls are willing to risk losing our love and goodwill in this life for the specific purpose of healing.
When we get triggered, when life gets intense, healing is possible. As Rumi once said, “The wound is the place where the light enters you.” The ego may attempt to distract by moving in victimhood; however, this form of resistance indicates that true transformation is at hand.
You are loved, supported and guided – always. Trust the processes of your awakening by choosing to turn and face your challenges with an open heart.
