We all know that we can never truly appreciate something unless we have worked at it. Sometimes worked very hard to create or achieve something. We know that when we have suffered a hard time, be it a relationship or a time in our lives…it gives us a full appreciation of the good times when they do come. But if we only ever knew one side of those journeys we would have nothing to compare our experiences with.
One day Spirit spoke to me and said…’If you would wish a better world and take away all those hard experiences would we really have a more beautiful world? Then I will give you a difficult thing to understand but it is a future with none of those hard experiences.’…Spirit then said…’I want you to imagine a generation that are used to everything being good in their lives, nothing going wrong and obtaining everything they have ever asked for…and begin to expect it like a spoiled child. You know the one’s you meet that are utterly spoiled by this, have everything their own way and demanding it be given them because they would not know any other way. Those who do some of the most selfish things you have ever seen. No empathy, no compassion…and love…they would never know its true meaning but a shallow, self centered image of their own. Simply because they cannot ‘see’ another way, don’t understand and appreciate what they do have and how they would be if they lost it. That would be your future. If you think this world is hard now, imagine it full of that. A balance would be lost…in us all’.
So my friends, some do go through the above but they are tempered by those around them. Can see that there is indeed many other ways, many paths to try. And yes this world can indeed throw us into some very hard and painful places…but in doing so we find us, appreciate us, and finally see through those many conditions we have lived through. All of those experiences are making us, developing us, and giving a true understanding of what we really are within so that we can see and appreciate what unconditional love truly is when we meet it. There is indeed a balance to everything, and yes it can swing sometimes too far. But like everything else in this world it will attract that balance by its love or lack thereof. Love wants that balance…love is that balance. So yes, it does ask you to go through some tough paths, but it wants you to find it, feel it, be it.
And through that hard work it is waiting within it, cheering you on like nothing else you could even compare it to. And when you finally see it, I swear in all that I am, you will never not appreciate the path you have taken…not one step will you doubt or deny…because in that love you will finally see it in all its glory, understand exactly what you have done to achieve and appreciate this very moment…and in doing so, finally love the one person you had doubted, thinking you were not lovable, not good enough or not a million other things…because you will see that you needed to doubt, needed to believe you weren’t good enough…so that when you finally saw that it was this exact journey which would give you an appreciation of you and just what you have now achieved because of it. Love wanted you to find it and you can’t be just ‘given it’…or you too would be spoiled and not appreciate its beauty. But in going through what you have, you have created something beyond words. A masterpiece that has taken much time and effort, something that in its beauty will attract many from afar. And they will all ask ‘how did you do this?’, to which you will reply…’I just had hope and faith and listened to my heart, the best that I could!’. And they will ask, why don’t I give them a straight answer of what they need to do? Because they then would not appreciate what it has taken you to find yours…as they must do to find theirs. Each a unique path, just as love is ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
