Our friend the Universe
2 days till Friday.
I can be happy then.
Ever muttered any of those gems, even if in your head?
Life is hard, work is hard, success and even progress can be hard.
One thing though my friends I have found to be true time and again.
Work hard enough, take enough steps forward, say "no" enough times when the chance to quit presents itself... and every now and then you are surprised at how easy a certain task, opportunity, or success came to you.
The fact is, we are spiritual beings having a human experience, not the other way around. We are energy, and as we exert energy in a given direction or towards our intent - we are met with energy.
Some of that energy is in the form of opposition. This could be opposition from competitors, nay-sayers, physical laws, or even our own instincts if not fully aligned towards our objectives. Therefore, the greater the goal, the greater the amount of resistance we are likely to experience.
Fortunately, some of that energy we are bound to encounter is also in the form of assistance. The good old Law of Attraction. I'm a firm believer that for every step we take, the Universe takes one for us as well. It may not be when we want, and we may not be able to see it... but many times we are far too lucky to be as good as we are, and that's the Universe cutting us some slack for not wasting the finite amount of energy loaned to us while we are alive.
Complaining, whining, blaming, and failing to act; from the perspective of being spiritual beings - doesn't make a whole lot of sense does it?
Actions, on the other hand...
