the problematic situations in your life are not chance or haphazard….

“Your conflicts, all the difficult things, the problematic situations in your life are not chance or haphazard. They are actually yours. They are specifically yours, designed specifically for you by a part of you that loves you more than anything else. The part of you that loves you more than anything else has created roadblocks to lead you to yourself. You are not going in the right direction unless there is something pricking you in the side, telling you, “Look here! This way!” That part of you loves you so much that it doesn’t want you to lose the chance. It will go to extreme measures to wake you up, it will make you suffer greatly if you don’t listen. What else can it do? That is its purpose.”

“Your mind is like a tree, and the thoughts that enter your mind are like birds,” she said. “It’s not so important which birds light on a branch of your tree for a moment and then fly on. What matters is which birds you allow to build a nest in your tree and make a home there.” There’s probably not a fleeting thought that we all haven’t held at one time or another, but the thoughts that build our reality are those we feed on day after day.

Thought for the Week – 12th September 2022 (2)

So do not seek glory for your work. Work in Humility, and diligently, we would say, on behalf of the True Self, who will always instruct you in your requirements for growth.This is done in the life you live, and the opportunities that present themselves to you will be the ones you claim and learn through and benefit from.
