Daily Inspirational Message for November 30, 2013

Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day. These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief, and insanity as well as love, hope, ecstasy, and wonder. Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor.
– Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy (SARK)
 

One of my favorite things to do is read blogs about people’s spiritual journeys. When I read about other people trying to find emotional peace and forgiveness; about all the ways they feel neurotic and inadequate; all the times they find it hard to hang in there and keep the faith; all the crazy stuff they have to deal with from their family members, friends, coworkers and strangers on the street, it makes me feel less alone with my own problems. Reading about others’ trials and tribulations makes me feel more normal and more okay about myself and my own imperfect life. It also reminds me that we’re all in this together. Be kind to yourself and everyone you meet, and try to keep laughing at all the messes life slings your way; it’s all any of us can really do anyway.

A messenger can only deliver a message to someone who is a vibrational match to the message. So don’t wear yourself out, saying things to people who can’t hear you.
– Abraham-Hicks
 

While spiritual awakening comes with all sorts of lovely blessings, it does carry some challenges. I think one of the greatest is remembering that everyone is just where they need to be and doing whatever they need to be doing in order to learn whatever they personally need to learn. When we find an answer for ourselves – some truth or teaching that sets our hearts free from suffering, that brightens our outlook on life and buoys us with wonderful feelings – we naturally want to share what we’ve learned with the people around us, especially if they are stuck in limiting beliefs and experiences we have suffered through in the past. When we do share our answers, however, we often end up disappointed and frustrated when those amazing insights aren’t embraced and immediately put to good use. Some of us even believe that we have a duty to try to rescue others, but of course, each one of us must walk our own path in our own time and way. Often, the kindest, sanest thing we can do is humbly and quietly stand in our own truth, keep shining bright with joy and well-being, and smile on everyone with trust that whatever they’re thinking, feeling, doing and experiencing is perfect for them at this time.
