No Shortcuts

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life." – John Lennon

How many times do we “not understand the assignment?” As humans, we often find ourselves faced with tasks or situations that we simply do not understand. It can be frustrating to feel lost or confused, unsure of how to move forward or make progress. In some ways, this experience can be seen as a metaphor for our spiritual journeys. At times we may feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the task ahead. We may not know where to begin, or we may feel like we are not making progress despite our efforts. This can be disheartening and lead us to question our path and our purpose. But perseverance is my forte and I am not a person who gives up easily. I have faced many dragons in this lifetime and have learned that for something to be rewarding, it sometimes is not easy. You see, I want things like opening a jar or packing up my car to be easy. But the lessons in life where I have to use spiritual muscles, those facilitate growth, which is what I am here for.

Dear Angels, we may find that our understanding deepens and expands in unexpected ways when we choose to face the difficulties of life head on. We may discover new insights and connections that were not apparent before, and we may come to appreciate the journey for what it is - a process of growth and transformation.

Dear Ones, all the answers are inside of you. When you approach a situation logically using your head to figure it out as opposed to allowing yourself to receive the answers through your divine connection, you are looking for a shortcut. Taking the shortcuts of life stops you from the benefit of the entire experience. It is through the struggles and challenges that you learn the most about yourselves and what you are doing in the world. As you continue on your spiritual journey, take comfort in the fact that you are never truly lost, but rather simply on a path of discovery and growth.

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

Today, I promise to take the long way and enjoy what I am learning along the way.
