Difficulties are Our Spiritual Practice
The moment we find ourselves wanting to complain about someone or something, STOP.
Yes, that person was being “rude,” and No, we don’t deserve it. It is unfair, and wrong, and they “should” be nice to us. Everything “should” flow sweetly and easily, so that we always remain comfortable. Adversity “should” never cross our path, because we are so good and loving.
If we believe the above, we should live in a cave or on an island alone.
Life is simply not that way. We are tested and bombarded almost every moment with a decision to either support our ego or our spirit.
Sometimes we need our friends to wake us up out of our ego laden slumber and say, “Get over it.” Sometimes we need loving arms wrapped around us with comfort saying, “I know its hard, I am here for you.”
How Do We Make Difficulties Our Spiritual Practice?
1. See every difficulty as a gift. This is our opportunity to practice, love, compassion, patience, and gratefulness.
2. See ourselves as much needed powerful transformers in a harsh world. We need to be the love rebels. The world teaches revenge. One by one, act by act, we can set a new loving standard.
We cannot be the ones who join in on declaring what is unfair anymore.
We welcome it. Wow, that would make heads turn!
