You are already engaged in the ultimate spiritual practice, exactly as you are right now. At this moment, your life is giving you specific lessons that your soul deeply wants to know. And what you are going through is perfectly perfect for you. Because you planned it to teach you the most.

You wanted your life to be a spiritual practice that you couldn’t avoid, and so you laid it out optimally. You wanted to be shown how you feel separate so that you could heal that separation in you. And so, you chose specific challenges that would push you to grow. Because you wanted to see just how you suppress love and withhold it from yourself.

That is why your life can feel so relentlessly frustrating – because it shows you how you want to grow with love. And so, every day, you are being asked to summon love and act with it on this earth. That is why you can’t expect perfect health and happiness, nor relationships that don’t challenge you at all. Because the point is that you are here to challenge yourself.

The beautiful truth is that you want to stop separating yourself from love. And even though that can seem impossible, it is the easier thing to do.

Once you accept this, challenges become opportunities rather than disappointments that lead to suffering. Your life shines with meaning, and its spiritual practice is revealed. You realize that you already are where you want to be – growing passionately.

Are you willing to take advantage of this gift and learn all that it has to teach? You went through a lot to get here, so seize this chance while you have it. Are you willing to expand with more love than you ever thought possible? If you haven’t already done so, dear friend, hear the resounding yes from your soul!

For a long time, I resented that I had to come here and live a human life. But now, I see that I create what I experience because it is a reflection of my own beliefs. So now, all I want to do is expand and open myself yet more. I am following my steadfast heart, even when my human self suffers in fear. But underneath, always, I can feel my soul beaming!

Life is asking us to seize its riches, and we planned its noble challenge. That is how brave we are to be spiritual beings on this relentless human earth. So if you’re beating yourself up for not meditating or practicing yoga, stop, and realize where you are. You are already engaged in the most effective spiritual practice, and nothing is more important than it.
