So, I sometimes say things in conversation that people resonate with.
That might be a bit of an understatement. What they usually say is:
“You need to write an article about that!”
“Have you written an article about that?”
Well, there are too many moments like that to count. So, capturing the idea, in text or audio form, as quickly as possible, has become the standard procedure here.
The following audio/video is much more powerful in context of the conversation that was being had. But it still encapsulates something critical — that there aren’t necessarily more secrets to learn, only more challenges to rise to.
When the universe sees us rising to those challenges instead of resisting them, it can bring us to the next part of our journey. And that can take a long time to learn, but it’s worth it.
Recognize that the universe is always on your side, taking you on the shortest, most direct path to what you want. The only thing the universe didn’t promise is that the path would somehow be easy.
The thing that we often do that’s not true is that “oh, there’s a secret, and then there’s a secret behind the secret.” It’s not that.
Just feel good now. Feel as good as you possibly can. Every experience should be pleasurable, and fun, and enjoyable. And then you know you’re in alignment with your purpose, your identity, your person — everything you were meant to do in this world and the difference you were meant to make.
When every experience is pleasurable, like Christmas eve and you know there’s going to be presents the next morning. Then you know you are perfectly in alignment with you.
This doesn’t mean there aren’t uncomfortable experiences. It doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges to rise to. In fact, those challenges are just letting you know that that’s what’s next. That’s what you’ve got to do now.
The universe is so good at letting you know, “Hey, this is what’s next. It’s uncomfortable. It doesn’t feel good right now. If you just jump over this hurdle though, massive breakthrough lies on the other side.”
