The subconscious ego may be torn up and desperately distraught …. circles over and over in despair, depression, worry, and fear about the global and very personal issues we face now …… without finding any value in it at all. Yet, there is value in everything, including the present challenges.
Difficulties can challenge us to pause, ponder and contemplate …. to go within …… to seek joy and happiness. Isn’t it true that we seek strength, wisdom, freedom and harmony? Even the subconscious cries for freedom from misery. Urns for happiness. Pleads for strength and wisdom.
The subconscious ego wants to reject the way things are now, and would much rather focus on the future or the past without fully experiencing life now. Yet, it’s an opportunity missed. So many, many opportunities missed to consciously experience life. Gone.
If we view every challenge, every problem, every opposition ….. as an opportunity to find within us a greater response then …… we are encouraged to look within to find our sown strengths …… to rediscover our Soul’s Strength, Wisdom, Truth and Love.
Challenges can prompt us to pause, ponder, and become Silent …… and that’s when we are better able to look deep within and recognize our own Inner Real Self. We may find that we are in the moment fully ….. appreciating Life.
And there can be victory in our hearts ….. and this is a secret Love within us awakening ….. Unconditional Love and Joy.
Gratitude may arise for the awareness of what is happening. Not for the crisis, problem or opposition, rather gratitude for the awareness of serenity and love always being close at hand. Gratitude for the infinite opportunities in this moment. Gratitude for some higher conscious understanding, that may not be logical, rather something deeper and far reaching ….. life changing.
And we can know ….. that if we do fall when facing challenges, it is temporary because we have a deep drive within us to succeed in life. It may take a while and we can hit bottom. Yet, eventually we will, with the help of the Great Principle, find the courage to dust ourselves off and face life again ….. and this is a great gift of Unconditional Love.

“And there are those who walk the Divine Road. No human help do they expect. At first their steps are handicapped. They have to fight ill-will, and apathy, and ignorance, and fear….And by and by, slowly, step after step they climb, overcoming obstacles along the way, until easier and broader turns the path on which they move onward.”
Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, pages 305 and 306.
