People believing they are small, or powerless, is the primary test of humanity. This is the great lesson of Earth School. As sparks of the Divine, we courageously agree to serve on this mission for a wide variety of reasons, but the overarching goal is to recognize our true greatness and serve each other.
Know that all that concerns you is in perfect order. Even though this is a short statement, it contains all that you desire at this time. If you can feel any golden thread in this, you will come to know that it will lead you to the magnificent golden tapestry that is your life.
Withdrawal is contraction, holding back. When you do this, you are constraining yourself, which serves nothing but to hurt you. This is what makes your body sore, your sleep disturbed, your energy jumpy, your defenses high, your heart closed…need we go on? Stop it. Really.
