Growth Comes From Our Deepest Pains
Dear Blessed One,
The Divine is here. It is standing right in front of you.
What is the Divine reflecting to you?
See if you can adjust your perception enough to recognize the Divine in the people you encounter. It’s there and offering you a gift.
Is your view so frozen that you’re not able to see it? Can you look beyond what the mind wants to judge as good or bad?
We are all reflections for the other and answering a call of the heart. Our gifts from (and to!) the other do not always come in pretty wrapping paper. Sometimes they’re actually so repulsive that it’s difficult to imagine how it could possibly be of benefit. It is, or it wouldn’t be. Period.
Are you seeing something beautiful in another person? That person is reflecting you to you. Do you have a desire for stronger and more clear boundaries? Don’t be surprised when someone shows up in your life who will teach you that very thing. It may not be fun, it might be messy, but it will be an answering to a silent prayer. Perhaps in time you will be able to find gratitude for the gift that person gave you.
Our greatest gifts and most profound growth usually comes from our deepest pains or tangled difficulties.
Look deep as you’re being gifted by the Divine. Don’t shoot the messenger – that person is there for your enlightenment. Don’t miss the treasure that’s being presented to you. Stay open to the possibility that Life does what Life does for a reason. It may not always be clear in the moment.
This practice will assist you in noticing that all is perfect, which will free you from the burdens of the world, opening you to the Light of your being.
Much Love and Blessings to You,
“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
~ Kahlil Gibran
