The lower-dimensional experience is nothing if not difficult.
Even the brightest seeker can’t deny that we’re in the trenches, and instead of removing pain from our lives, discovering spirit helps us deal with it in a more enlightened way. We face the challenges we’re given, and we do our best not to fall into the egotistical dross that’s hard to climb out of.
It’s much easier to feel weighed down than uplifted, and that’s why so many enlightened teachers have expressed that effort’s required before we can be in a good place. We have to be willing to persevere through the dross; the pain; the difficulty.
We have to make it clear that the weight of this experience won’t keep us down. If we get hurt, we have to heal at our own pace before getting back out there and pursuing our dreams. We have to be humble when circumstances aren’t in our favor, and grateful when they are.
When the sun won’t shine, we can do our best to light our inner fire and keep on. Strength and perseverance are important right now, because even though we’re reaching a greater state of consciousness, we still have a lot of individual and collective negativity to work through.
If any of you feel as if you can’t keep going, as if life is unbearably pushing you down, you should know that you have the strength to make it through this. Not only do you have the strength to persevere – you can soar to new heights and put everyone around you on a new level.
In trudging through the worst experiences this planet has to offer, you can soar above the pain and reach a place of wholeness, stillness and bliss. You can constantly anchor and express the divine qualities, and in doing so, you’ll be an immense force for change.
Everyone defines change differently, but divinely inspired change starts with us. The greatest force for change could be an obscure conscious seeker who expresses the divine qualities while they go about their 9 to 5 job, and even our most difficult trials don’t have to hold us back.
Even our worst experiences will teach us something valuable. The key is to get through nasty situations without being attached to the pain involved, but when the ego’s hurt, detaching from its influence can be hard. I think we’re given more help than we realize, however, even when we feel our loneliest.
Acknowledging and utilizing the spiritual assistance we’re being given will help us feel less weighed down, and when we’re in a lighter state, we’ll make a lot more progress.
We don’t have to be products of the lower vibrations, but at the same time, we don’t have to hide from their reality. There’s still a lot of density and self-service on this planet, and instead of ignoring or succumbing to it, we can embrace the immense opportunity we have to heal it.
Healing the planet starts with cultivating balance and stillness, and as strange as it seems, we’re encouraged to embrace the density we’ve willingly taken on so we can heal it and put this world back on a comfortable, purer vibration. We’re progressing into a higher state of consciousness, but we’re doing it from a lower place that’ll test us on our way out.
