The Path to a New Kind of Strength

posted by Guy Finley

Question: “My situation is myself” — I think I get it — I just need to know how having my baby in intensive care for over two months applies to my situation? I need to be clear about this.

Answer: The idea that “my situation is myself” is valuable to us to the degree that we understand what “powers” this understanding grants us. It’s not that this knowledge makes us stronger than difficult moments, but that it allows us the use of such moments for our spiritual growth — a growth that ultimately equates with a new kind of strength. As we grow inwardly, we increasingly realize that what we experience from life begins with our own perception of the life we are experiencing. The first surface of the mirror that we gaze upon called life is what we know about ourselves. Don’t try to be stronger than your situation; become a student of it. This is the path to victory.

Reject Soul-Destructive Energies

Stop Cooking Your Own Goose!
Any time you sit, think about, and "stew" over what someone did to you, or simmer in anger about some past event, the real reason for your pain is because you're cooking your own goose!
