Attended a discourse by another spiritual teacher today.
There was this thing he said that made sense in the way of finding the exact key to a lock. This bit of insight that he shared with us is not new. Not a unique view on life. But his representation of a common issue was so simple, hilarious and right, that it got everyone there nodding vigorously. Because we got it!

The solution offered was a change in consciousness. An uncomfortable first no when we feel the drag away from hope. A few uncomfortable refusals later, we'll begin to break a pattern. We create a new self, a new pattern and that, right there, is a step into a glorious future! We're making perfect use of the present in this way.
I am in love with this thought. Walking backwards into your future - just a choice of words and what a difference it can make!
