Often it can be challenging to see through the illusions of this world to the love which connects us; however, that is the ultimate purpose of our sojourn through time and space. We must begin within and expand outward. When repeating patterns make you feel trapped, purposely try something different. Take yourself into the unknown and see what arises.
As we learn to overcome our fear, something new emerges. Each situation and life circumstance has something to teach; therefore, varied experiences will give an expanded understanding of your true self and potential.
Find your unique balance of work and play, of celebration and solitude, of giving and receiving and let your life be a dance of opposites and paradox. The most important aspect of spiritual work is how we choose to incorporate it into our physical experience.
