"The divine in you loves you too much to see you stagnate." - Yogarupa Rod Stryker
When it feels like an uphill battle, or like things will never change, or that it's all too hard, remember this: the divine (the universe/nature/goddess/god/all of these) loves you too much to see you stagnate.
This path that you're on, this work that you're confronted with, this pain you're looking in the eye, this challenge that's looming...this is all a clarion call, a beckoning to grow, to progress, to move forward. THIS is a summons from the divine. To do the work, to unravel the knots and smooth out the creases, to rewrite an old story, to make a different choice. To stretch yourself and rise up to the next level. To continue on the path of your own becoming.
Does nature leave budding flowers to wither away as they are, frozen in an unrealised state, and say "good enough, that'll do"? Does Winter linger in perpetuity? Does the Moon yawn at the Sea and think, "maybe tomorrow."
No. Just as nature expects the ecstatic bloom to burst forth from the bud, just as Spring leaps forward from the depths of Winter, just as the moon sings up the tides, so does the divine call out to you, summoning your greatness, your growth and your full potential.
This is the pulse and the power and the momentum of love that flows from the divine to you. So reframe your labouring and your suffering and your challenges as a summons from the divine. As a loving invitation, asking nothing of you other than that you fully become yourself.
