Never fail to show up for life. Sometimes it would “seem” to be easier to stay on the sidelines—not participate, not be hurt. You are wrong. You choose to incarnate to be “hurt” by the “other” who is but a shadow reflection of yourself. If you didn’t see the truth in the “mirror”, you could not have felt the pain of recognition. Bless then the “other” who you can now choose to turn away from—in seeing that this is no longer the truth of who you are.
Whenever you experience “pain”—whether physical or otherwise—you should be assured that this is always a temporary situation and that it has its purpose. Sometimes this purpose is not always apparent or seems particularly distressful to you. This may be because it is for long-term growth of your soul purpose; a purpose which is for your highest good. With your limited understanding of the concept of death, you believe that this is the “worst thing” that can happen on the physical plane of reality; this could not be furthest from the actual truth of the matter. Rather, it is non-growth—which stems from your resistance to moving through pain into a greater understanding of its purpose in your life which colors your outlook on your current circumstances.
Know that to the degree that you resist, you are pushing this necessary life experience away from its integration into the soul. It is this process of pushing away which causes you the most pain—and the continuance of this pain until some level of resolution comes to the forefront. This resolution may take the “unfortunate” form of madness or death. These are the direct result of the rejection of experience as incompatible with your current understanding of yourself in relationship to your fellow human beings. The guides you have been given can help only to the extent that you allow them to—their help cannot be forced and it must be welcomed on some conscious level.
