Challenges Are Opportunities In Disguise

"Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful." -Joshua J. Marine

Throughout this thing called life, we face many challenges. Every challenge, every hardship, is an invitation to deeper understanding, an opportunity for growth if we allow it. However, this is the not easy part of life! It is true that like the lotus that blooms in the murk, our spirits can thrive amidst adversities. These trials – which I call fires – are not mere obstacles but instead are profound lessons which mold us, refine us, and bring us closer to our Divine purpose. So when I yell or pout and stomp my feet, I am forgetting that there is a purpose to all of the unpleasantness.

Dear Angels, I understand that I came here in a human body for the purpose of my spiritual growth and also to help shine a light on this beautiful planet. I get both of those things. I’m pretty sure that I did not know that the challenges would be so monumental at times. And then I come upon a teaching that shakes me back out of the dream, the illusion that those things I am experiencing have to be hard. As I look around me and see others facing things that seem impossible to endure, my challenges suddenly become very small.

Dear Ones, do you not realize that each of you are equally important? Just as there are no comparisons in miracles, there also are no comparisons in difficulties in life. While it may seem that someone else has been hit hard with challenge after challenge, you are only looking at it from your limited viewpoint. We encourage you, Dear Ones, to stay in your heart and in the knowingness that as you walk through your fires of life, you can view them as opportunities for growth and not as any kind of attack. Each one of you has to come to their own respective understanding based on what your soul contract contains. If you checked all the boxes, then you will be seeing more of what you perceive as hardship. Sometimes those who are in what appears to be the biggest fires are the ones who are mastering their soul purpose. Do not pity them or try to take their burden from them. All is working out according to the Divine plan.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to see each challenge as an opportunity.
