Keep the Faith

As I continue to explore what it means to be ‘spiritual’ I feel like it is important to talk about faith. When I refer to faith I am referring to a belief that the world is a loving place and that God (or Buddha or Allah..) or the universe is supporting, guiding and cheering us on every step of the way.

A further belief involves the idea that we are all here to serve in some way, to make a contribution to the betterment of human kind, what I call having a life purpose. So if we put these two beliefs together, then it starts to make sense that when you face challenges they are not there to slow you down but rather to raise you up (up to new levels of consciousness). As we previously discussed every challenge, if explored, gives you something that you can use on our journey towards finding and living your life purpose. 

Here is a quote from Eckhart Tolle that I love:

One thing we do know: life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.

Next time I will talk about how to not stay stuck in your struggle or challenge and how to see things from a new perspective, one that allows for a bigger picture view of the situation you or someone you know may be facing.

Please enjoy your week and remember when challenges arise (big or small) - keep the faith!
