“The world is not here to make you happy. It’s here to make you conscious.”
I often use the term “highest good” when seeking clarity regarding life situations. Most people assume that “highest good” means joyful or easy; however, since the soul desires awakening, it will sometimes choose to walk directly into karmic situations specifically for the growth that is accelerated by the struggle.
In the midst of our challenges, it’s important to remember that happiness is the natural by-product of higher consciousness. The temporary discomfort we experience awakens our strength and resilience and sets us on a journey of self-discovery. The awakened soul eventually achieves a state of inner mastery that creates a foundation of empowerment and peace, no matter what the circumstance.
Everything and everyone you encounter plays a unique role in your soul’s development. Consider this – those who challenge you the most on the physical plane love you the most on the spiritual plane. They provide opportunities for you to rise above, define your boundaries, articulate your beliefs and live your truth. Ultimately, love resides at the core of every situation.
The slow transformative path to freedom requires that we open to life. Embrace the things that seem to block your way to love and shine the light of consciousness upon them. Your soul knows exactly what it is doing. Trust the processes of your awakening.
