We often find ourselves in places and positions in life that we never expected to be in. These include difficult situations with difficult people; in bad relationships; in physical or emotional pain and depressed or in fear.
Truth is, we are in those places and situations because we are supposed to be. It is by design for our personal edification or that of others. Whether we are partly or totally responsible or because of situations completely beyond our control. Often times it is for purposes that will in some way, shape or form be mutually beneficial to us and others at some later period. We are just unable to see the grand picture in the midst of the storm.
We just need to quiet ourselves – our minds, our emotions and extend our vision beyond the immediate storm or turmoil. It is extremely difficult but necessary if we are to mature and evolve into beings that are fully self-actualized: the realization or fulfilment of one’s talents and potentialities, especially considered as a drive or need present in everyone. As we become self-actualized as individuals, we then can become a race of self-actualized beings that live, love and evolve together who are ready and able to take our rightful place collectively within the beauty that is universal creation itself.
