The other side of Acceptance. Sometimes the only way we truly learn our lessons is through struggle and conflict. Gliding along on a magic carpet is enthralling and even inspirational but can be distracting if we are skimming over a real in-depth change that has become necessary for our soul’s progress.
When the carpet hits the ground, we encounter reality head-on and we are required to learn and grow. Progress can require battling through adversity or taking a step back and observing just how stuck we are.
Our resistance to stepping up and standing in our own authority can actually be the motivating force to breaking through. Suddenly we discover a new awareness and find creative ways to integrate the lesson and overcome.
This little tree had to plow through big rocks but it is proof that no matter how hard the challenge, our fierce resistance followed by determination can turn us into overcomers.
