Most of us are striving to find our spiritual purpose and to become better human beings. But once we embark on a spiritual path, it can actually become harder for us to figure out what it is that we are meant to do. We think things should come easier to us now that we’ve found spirituality.
We think, “I’m on the path, so why isn’t my life perfect yet? Why haven’t I made the money I had hoped to make or met the person of my dreams yet?” But who says that you are supposed to accomplish these things at all?
Even if we become spiritual, we shouldn’t look to Heaven for a quick fix because a spiritual path doesn’t always run straight. In fact, the things we must do on our spiritual path may be far more difficult than anything we might encounter on a “normal” path.
For in order to have free will, we must encounter equal measure of darkness and Light. As our Light grows, so does the darkness that will challenge us. But this is what makes the Light that we earn so rewarding.
