When you least expect it sometimes the best solution is the unconventional one. This is very, very important to remember because life is hard. It is hectic and you have to keep your mind open to all possibilities. You are in a war every day whether you know it or not. Give yourself more credit, your soul is valuable and there are people out there who are fighting to dominate it. You shouldn’t let that happen…it is more important to be a good person than anything. Don’t be emotional about life’s difficulties, they don’t respond to emotion, they respond to spiritual action.
Your life is your own. Your faith is your own.
Everything important in this world you already own. You don’t have to ask anyone for your happiness, you just have to live the life you know you need to live. Give yourself a pat on the head, but not before you do your due diligence. It’s important to make everything into a way to defend your spiritual position. Every day you are not growing you are dying. A strong tree has bark that is nearly impenetrable to anything around it. Why is this? Because it strengthens its defenses every day. The natural elements themselves have little effect. The tree is ready for anything, it proves it daily with its stalwart behavior and dedication to growth.
So too should we be like trees, protecting our internal heart and spirit by training our exterior to be impervious to the society gone rogue, going on outside. Give yourself a reason to be your own hero, because you are the hero of a story that has yet to be told.
