 Remember how far you have come


All of us seem to be working on our "stuff", and sometimes it seems that we are getting nowhere. We work on things, we face things, we let things go, but still more things keep popping up. It is never ending, there is always more, you never have it all figured out. As soon as you think you have, boom, another big one hits. 

That, of course, is the reason we are here...to learn and grow.Thankfully, you only have "stuff" popping up as you are ready to deal with it. The issues that are hidden deep within will not emerge all at once. You will be given them small doses to make it easier to handle. As of today, you may have removed or at least shaken up a layer or two, but undoubtedly, there is still a long way to go. ....

Sometime you may feel as though you have conquered a particular problem and are finally free of it, when it comes back in another form or with a different person. Some things are simply tests for you to see if you actually have conquered that issue.

But, with all this, you ARE growing, you are "getting it" on some level. You are always "better" than you were yesterday. If you are working on YOU, there is improvement. Just because everything is not perfect, yet, doesn't mean there is no progress. 

Sometimes, we need a little reminder of where we started, how far we have come. There are two people in my life that were given the blessing of just that this week. They both got a glimpse of how life was a year or so ago, and realized that life is so much better now. This is a divine gift. Never doubt that, you too, are on your path, and exactly where you are supposed to be.

"I think a Spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It is a journey of recovery. It's a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It's already there." Billy Corgan
