Everyone’s spiritual journey has aspects of the story in The Karate Kid.  There are no exceptions.  It will seem like we have done so much “waxing on and off” and “sanding the floor” that we’re bone tired and beyond.  It’s as if we’re sore from it.

We don’t understand, why is this happening to me?  It feels SO painful.

The key to understanding is in realizing that the pain comes not from the repetitive movement, but from thinking the repetition is pointless.  Or, that we don’t want to do it.

Those are two thoughts that become pain points.
Contemplate these and see where in your life you might be thinking them:

“This is pointless.”
“I don’t want to do this.”

The more we believe it, the more painful it feels.

There comes a moment in our spiritual maturity when we realize that ruminating about “I don’t like this,” and “It’s not fair” and “Why me?” and “I hate this” and “This is so hard” is all just water off a duck’s back.  It becomes noise in the background that we can filter out and rise above to where we hear the Higher Holy Spirit Self communicating to us every moment.

Finally, I realized:
I have to actually BE willing – not just say it.
I AM that I AM is answering my prayer.  Allow it.  Receive it.  Be it.

We are being carved and sculpted by a Master Artist who makes no mistakes EVER.

Let’s affirm:
I am being lifted.
I am being carried.
I am being nurtured.
I am being taught.
I am being healed.

Consider this:
The ego can be like the sound of a whiny child.  The relentlessness of an unhappy child and the sound of the whine can wear us down, if we’re willing to let it.

If we let our mind settle for “I don’t like it,” our mind will wear us down to where we have no patience or kindness left.

Then we may yell and threaten the child to stop whining.  We may display our anger to frighten the child into stopping.  We may pout, and punish, and withhold Love to manipulate the child to stop.  Trying to make the child feel bad, wrong and guilty is a method many use.

What’s the whining for?
To help us find our heart of compassion.
Sometimes we fail.
Sometimes we succeed.
When we fail, we start again.
When we succeed, we can rejoice and learn.

When we align with our Higher Holy Spirit Self, the child itself will stop whining because through that alignment with the higher vibration, the honest feeling that “All is well” will emerge.

I practice this on planes.  A baby starts crying, and I can feel the ripple through plane of people thinking “Oh, no!  Don’t let that baby keep crying.  Make it stop!”  I used to feel that way.

Now, I call to the angels to support the baby and the parents, and to let Peace fill the entire plane and all of our minds.  I work with the Violet Flame, and it’s remarkable how quickly the baby is comforted.  It happens in moments.

When we align with the Higher Holy Spirit Self then all IS in alignment with Love itself.

How would I like to live?
I decide.
I AM the decider – even if I think I’m not.  Even if I feel like a victim, I am still the one who decides that I’m being victimized.  I can choose again.

Sometimes I get flashes of a future time, looking back at today and evaluating the choices I am making now.  Those little flashes feel like my Higher Holy Spirit Self reminding me to choose higher, to look for a more loving choice, and to reach for something more helpful.

Nothing is wasted.
Spirit uses everything to bless us.
Still, we can move into our awakening faster by being more willing to answer the call today, rather than put it off till tomorrow.
This little clip from The Karate Kid is such a good reminder that there is a Master Teacher, nothing is pointless, and we can complain and make ourselves miserable or we can trust our teacher and declare our willingness to be awake and aware.  Now is the time we get to decide.  Right now.
This has so completely changed my life!  It thrills me to be able to share it!  We can change our minds and set ourselves free.  Suffering is optional.  PHEW!

Let’s make the most of every opportunity for our healing and awakening, and remember to laugh when we forget.  Every day I offer “My Shot of Spiritual Espresso”.  I write spiritual inspiration and record a prayer for our healing.  Prayer is a power tool for our liberation.  Pray with me today.  We use technology to transcend time and space and deepen our spiritual practice, and connect with each other.  Our spiritual practice is our direct path of liberation, and that’s beautiful to share!

We’re all on a journey of relinquishing the blocks to Love and there is so much help for us in the invisible.  We are never alone.  I Love you and I thank God for you.  We bless each other with our willingness to rise in Spirit and come back into our right minds.  Together, we truly are answering our call to BE the Love.  YES!
