“If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.” — Unknown
The teachings of almost every spiritual tradition emphasize the value of perseverance. The Bhagavad Gita, one of the sacred scriptures of Hinduism, urges us to uphold our duties despite difficulties and without attachment to the results. Buddhism highlights the importance of steadfastness in meditation to attain enlightenment. In Christianity, the concept of "carrying your cross" metaphorically symbolizes enduring hardships with faith.
Perseverance isn't just about pushing through hard times. It's also about maintaining faith, the belief in a higher power or divine providence. This steadfast belief often illuminates the path for us during the darkest hours, serving as our spiritual beacon, guiding us towards resilience.
Dear Angels, so many of us are realizing that we are here in this lifetime to learn about trust. It is difficult at times to persevere in the face of adversity or trauma. Our instinct is to stop when things become difficult, to not touch the hot surface or walk on the rough rocks. You have always taught me to persevere, however. It has served me well my entire life, although there have been times when I gave up just before my miracle showed itself.
Dear Ones, we encourage you to keep the faith, which is not about passivity, about waiting for divine intervention while making no effort. Let your faith fuel your action, driving your will to confront your challenges and rise above them. Faith can give you the courage to keep going when everything seems bleak. However, do not mistake perseverance with an unwillingness to change or stubbornness. True perseverance implies adaptability, understanding when to pause, rest, reevaluate and even change direction if needed. It's about standing true to your core values while navigating the turbulent waters of life. In the sacred dance of life, let perseverance be your rhythm, faith your music, and love your stage. Keep dancing, dear friends. For in this dance, every step taken with perseverance is a step closer to the divine.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to keep on keeping on.
