Starting Over is Always Possible

Too often it happens that some people lose their interest in self-study. They give up on their inner work because they don’t see the immediate results hoped for. If anything, in their growing awareness of what has always been their actual condition, it seems to them that they are now even deeper asleep than ever before! Don’t fall for this trick! Instead, be encouraged by the fact that although you will likely fail many times along the upper path, self-study and inner success are really two ideas that mean the same thing, if you’ll only stay the course. All you have to do to stay the course and to win the inner war is be willing to start over and over and over again with your self-study. And here we encounter another beautiful law of higher life created just to help us succeed:


Starting over is always possible because Now is always new.

Life is continuously new in the present moment, and so are you. The negative inner voices that proclaim you won’t make it come only from what has been your world up until now, and not from Life in its perpetual newness. Seeing the truth of this gives you the strength to brush away these feelings of failure and start over with self-study.

Remember: Each moment that some self-study shows you how spiritually asleep you are, use that same moment to wake up and remember that you can always start your whole life over. Then see that the inner voice calling you a loser should be the focus of still a deeper self-study, and not the self that you look at yourself from.
