Need to Eliminate That "S" Word, Too...
month I told you that you had to forget the "R" word and focus
on "progression" and not buy into the mass mind and media
thinking about the economy.
Well, now we're going to
discuss another one of those culprit words that gets lodged in our
subconscious and keeps us from expressing who and what we really are...
So much of my writing is
triggered by the comments made by individuals on the various forums
that I visit. I am grateful for that fact, because it allows me to not
only share my teachings in reply, but I can then bring my views to you,
That day a woman expressed
that she felt that her struggles are making her a better person. Well,
my radar began buzzing and I felt a reply coming through, as follows...
I do not believe that your struggles are empowering you to be a better
person. I believe somewhere along the line that belief was instilled in
your mind and it can even become an excuse for NOT overcoming the
Yes, it's a mentality. When
someone contacts me to discuss mentoring or my programs, I can tell in
minutes on the telephone what their subconscious mindset is - and why
they are not moving forward in the way they want. I can tell by the
words that pop up in the conversation, usually repeatedly in a matter
of moments. Often they are not even aware that they are saying those
Well, one of those very
common culprit words is "struggle." And I don't see any use for that
word. I think it should be eliminated from our vocabulary!
We were not brought into
this life to struggle. Really. Well, maybe making our entrance from the
womb wasn't a piece of cake, but we were not given entrance into this
life so that we can struggle to be a better person.
We are here to
discover who and what we really are.
Do you know what the purpose
of your struggle is? The purpose is to become aware of the laws that
govern your existence so that you will break through that consciousness
and shine your light. It's a wake up call. It is a sign that you are
not aligned with your true purpose and your inheritance from the source
of all good and that it's time to change that and learn to receive what
is rightfully yours.
It is our soul revealing to
us the "mirror" of our consciousness so that we will take the action to
create a new reflection. It is our spirit telling us to come up higher,
that there is more to life than that "s" word.
I used to kick and scream
and rail again struggle. Or rationalize it. I went through so much to
learn how to accept and receive. But one of the enlightening moments in
my life was when I realized that human beings feel they have to suffer
and feel pain before they can receive their answers. As a society, we
don't understand that it is our right to receive by what I call grace.
And I am so grateful for the
time that I finally got it. I got that I didn't have to kick and scream
or do anything at all to make something happen or better. I could just
relax and trust and my answers would come at the speed of light.
Wow...I didn't have to pay for it by struggling. What a concept! :-)
Gee, I wonder if I can let others know about this.
Although struggle can be a
part of growth and enlightenment, we will only continue to experience
it until we realize that it is no longer necessary. We can come above
those "growing pains" so to speak.
Struggle may deepen our
compassion and empathy - I have no doubt about that because it worked
that way for me. However, we do not need to hang on to it. Once we
learn to connect with our source and receive our good, we can release
it entirely and use our understanding to help others if we so choose.
And by the way, I am not
just referring specifically to financial situations. This can apply to
all areas of life.
There is a scripture that
addresses this beautifully and a great American poet who had her
own unique spin on this concept...
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither
do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.
~ Matthew 6:25-34
Consider the lilies
is the only commandment I ever obeyed.
~ Emily Dickinson
