As human beings we are endowed with the power of manifesting. Not only is it our birthright, it is our purpose. The time we spend on this earth is for us to discover the extents to which we are able to create.
Nonetheless, this garden of earthly delights has its trappings as well. As we manifest, create, and discover pleasures and comforts we can find ourselves becoming complacent in a life path that is easy and comfortable. In order for us to continue to learn the boundless ways we are able to create a life magnificent, we cannot afford to find ourselves stuck in a rut, unchallenged and uninspired.
There are times when the only way we can be forced out of our own ruts is through tremendous upheaval in our lives. A long standing relationship may suddenly come to an end. Perhaps circumstances have led us to moving to a different part of the country or another land altogether. We had been living in a pattern of which we had become all too comfortable, and for the sake of our own personal growth, self-discovery, and untapped potential our world has turned upside-down seemingly overnight.
This form of life change may seem outside of our control, thrust upon us, making us feel like a victim of circumstance, but it is the greater part of ourselves delivering a blessing in disguise. It is the train whistle rudely waking us up as we sleep on the railroad track. To take the greatest advantage of the apparent upheaval that has entered our lives, we need to allow ourselves to see the event as a gift, as an opportunity we would not have otherwise found if we remained in the circle of comfort to which we had grown accustomed. The disruption can be quite painful initially, but there is invariably a fantastic gift which lies beneath the rubble.
