Daily Inspirational Message for February 13, 2014


When you first ask for an opportunity to make a difference in the world, you may find yourself putting energy into making your own life work at higher levels. You cannot serve others as effectively if your life is in turmoil and your problems take much of your time and energy. Solving your problems and making your life work is an important part of your spiritual growth.
– Orin

We all go through periods when things seem to fall apart: our employer goes out of business and we no longer know how we’ll pay the bills; a health problem or injury crops up that sidelines us; family members go through a hard time and put great demands on our own time and energy. Though those of us who are devoted to doing the work of Spirit in the world may wish we could be there for everyone all the time, the truth is that no one can be on call 24/7. Sometimes, we have to step down from trying to save the world to put our own lives back in order, for until we do, we won’t be able to bring our best selves to helping anyone else.
