Without any challenges, without any friction within your lives, there can be no growth, there can be no expansion. Suffering is an important part of your experience. It will be different for everyone and it is within these experiences that we know who we are and what we want.
Loving unconditionally involves accepting that there can be no light without the dark. The beauty of challenges allows us to experience what it feels like to accomplish a task, to connect with people, to strive for a common goal and to seek for a better future.
Because without these challenges, these speed bumps, you will find yourself down a road that is comfortable. And a comfortable road does not challenge you, it does not cause you to think twice about where you’re heading or how you’re living your lives. It is these speed bumps that hold the gifts to your inner world from which you create your reality. It is these speed bumps that provide you with the opportunities to stop and discern, to re-examine what you are doing, where you are heading and how it is you would like to proceed.
I suggest that you take this opportunity now to assess where your life is heading. To take note of how you feel and what it is that you wish to do with your life.
