…What I’ve come to learn is that in each moment, the darkness, the Light, the happiness, the sad, the awful and the moments of Grace - all of them are this great big Divine soup that is molding my Soul. This life and our circumstances are molding OUR Souls.
It’s like the great poet Rumi once said, “If you are bothered by every rub, how will you ever be polished?”
Rumi, it’s easy to hear you from a place of happiness, but when life gets tough we REALLY want to tell you to eff off, ‘cuz it’s hard to see the sorrow and pain as being polished. But, if we CHOOSE to give life this meaning, we can accept what is, but with the POSSIBILITY that something better can indeed be born from the dark shadows of our lowest moments.
Indeed, I do believe that The Uni-verse specializes in redemption. In fact, I’m now 100% convinced that I went through my own personal dark night of the Soul, not as punishment, but as Grace, so that I could actually LIVE in my purpose and not only that, but ENJOY IT as life came along."
