Problems are only bad when they control you. As soon as you realize that you have the freedom to sidestep any emotional or spiritual pitfall that you face, then you are back in the driver’s seat. The main thing is once again regaining your confidence that you can face anything and everything that life has to beat you up with. Life is a fight, we either fight to the death spiritually, or we kill our spirit and live on in something else’s name. The true fight for the soul is a brutal one; it puts you up against every fear, insecurity, and vice that you can imagine.
Temptation really is just about selling yourself short. It’s about taking a short-term win to forgo the long-term gain. We all have the capacity to wait out our difficulties. We have the capacity to be beautiful in every moment. We have the love that will conquer our self-hatred and anger. But many just don’t believe in it. They think themselves forlorn or spiritually mute. Humans are nothing of the sort. If anything we are meaning first type creatures that affect everything within our environments. Getting out of the trap that has been laid out before you is really about you finding the courage not to hate this world. Not to blame this world, not to condemn this world.
The world never publicly condemns you for being alive, so why should we condemn it. Sure there are a lot of problems, but these problems came from humans. They didn’t stem from nature or heaven. Humans make their own issues. We have nobody to blame but ourselves and maybe our demons. We refuse to live in harmony with the heavens and we pay the prices such behavior exacts. This isn’t a moralist rant, its just common sense. Humans are not to be hated, but they are to be taken with a grain of salt. Nobody said that they all meant well, but that doesn’t mean you have to follow any of them. Get out of your own trap, live like you know you can win. When you think you will lose, you have already lost!
