Life is not wrought with problems, only opportunities to expand our ability.
Many will tell you that life is full of problems. Just ask! Be prepared for a lengthy lamentation about the economy, taxes, big business, cancer, gout, traffic, disrespectful kids, and a zillion other challenges we face every day. Folks seem to view anything that requires work to navigate through as a problem. For some reason we feel that there should not be any of these in life; especially if we have lived right!
Well; guess what? These “so-called problems” just happen to be the spice of life, that without which we would have no purpose. No bridge was ever built to transcend flat level terrain, airplanes were not invented to move us a few feet, nor were walls and roofs constructed to keep us from comfortable, safe surroundings.
What we call “problems” are actually the catalyst for creation. The obstacles we face daily, both minimal and grand, all cause us to desire life without them. This desire gives us a point of focus with which we use our talents and abilities to create something. All around us, everything we can possibly experience is the transcendence of some problem, or more poetically phrased: THE FULFILLMENT OF DESIRE!
” The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it”.~Moliere~
The most unfortunate condition that exists, and the primary reason for all of humanities suffering is that we view these “opportunities” as “PROBLEMS” and initially assume that we can not solve them causing us great suffering. The pain we feel is not from the condition we encounter, but or lack of faith.There is no challenge that we can encounter that we cannot conquer, after all, we have summoned these conditions to ourselves for the express purpose of exercising our creativity. we need only have a little faith!—-
“I’ve been …motivated by overcoming challenge and overcoming the hurdles and obstacles that face me. There still is plenty out there to get motivated by.”~Andre Agassi ~
Without a worthy adversary, winning does not bring as much joy! We have been fashioned by Divine Awareness, to create an infinite number of diverse experiences, to do so, we need fodder for our canvass, and this is what those that are not aware call problems, allowing them to stop us in our tracks and limit our growth. Those that can see behind the curtian realize that prison bars are not meant to confine, but to challenge our insistance upon be free.We knew this at an early age, and have allowed maturity to stifle our instances upon getting our way. We were taught the all-encompassing dream killer: ” You don’t always get your way”. I say” WHY NOT?”
GREET EACH DAY WITH GRATITUDE FOR THE OBSTACLES THAT YOU FIND BEFORE YOU. THEY ARE YOUR REASON FOR BEING, YOUR MATERIAL TO BUILD WITH, YOUR BLUEPRINT FOR JOY!
The Journey IS the Destination.—-LIFE IS GOOD, ALL-WAYS!
