We came here to learn and experience. So, we're all walking that journey, and no one here is above and beyond that. Any teacher who claims to know all the secrets is having a major ego attack! Seriously, any real teacher knows that we're all here as students. You cannot be ego-less as a human being...you just can't. But that's the process, and the experience we signed up for! If it wasn't meant to be that way, it wouldn't. God could do that...but that isn't the journey that we were looking for. The point is to experience, to learn contrast, emotional balance, boundaries, and connection with the Divine.
Through all these daily trials, growth happens rapidly. When we fall down and get hurt, we are more receptive to change, because we know contrast. We learn that what we don't want will cause us to find out what we do want, and then the passion to grow even more causes drastic shifts in your personal development as a human being - and therefore, as a spiritual being. We willingly and knowingly put ourselves in these positions for the overall purpose of spiritual growth! Who woulda' thunk!
I'm now starting to understand on a deeper level that my self observation and awareness is sharpening. I'm learning that I can grow and change and develop WHILE I sit back and relax. I don't have to go gung-ho on everything until I hit walls. This whole publishing process has given me a taste of that - and though it has been exciting, joyful, and seriously fun, I have resistance to patience! I am already doing so much work, and somehow I keep going back to the thoughts of "I need to do more". That's just where I am, but I am noticing it...and therefore the resistance lessens. It's all good...it's all good.
