The willow knows what the storm does not: that the power to endure harm outlives the power to inflict it. – Blood of the Martyr
We’re put through certain experiences to become better humans. We can live all experiences in the following ways:
- Kicking and screaming: Which means we’ll likely have to relive the lesson being imparted until we get it!
- Without awareness: We’ll probably learn the specific lesson but may not be very good at applying it broadly.
- Fully Participating: This kind of participation yields the highest benefits to us, the folks we interact with and therefore the entire Universe.
We gain wisdom and endurance when we fully participate with the plans of the Intelligence that pervades all time and space…
Once we understand that life is a series of lessons and that endurance is a key attribute that God desires us to have, we can ‘flow’ with life… We experience it without kicking and screaming, life is then most meaningful…We can overcome any life situation.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM like the Willow, strong!
