How does consciousness expand?
By facing spiritual challenges with integrity, love and courage.
Spiritual tools are not cultivated unless we are able to utilize them during the course of our day-to-day lives while witnessing their transformative nature. There will certainly be moments when we feel overwhelmed or confused – this is absolutely necessary for the evolving soul.
As awakening masters, we have a tremendous opportunity to turn and shine the light of consciousness upon our challenges. When we have the courage bring them into the light of day, we begin to understand the perfection inherent in these impactful situations which herald our growth into new playgrounds of consciousness.
The key is to handle each challenge with as much willingness, compassion, love and kindness as possible. Conscious practice strengthens our ability to rise above the mechanisms of the mind. There will be moments when you miss the mark. That’s natural; however, through observation, you can purposely utilize the tools you have amassed thus far. Keep track of your choices, your intentions and how often you are able to tap into higher wisdom. Each situation is a gift that transforms how you experience the world.
