“The good news is that as consciousness expands, our old beliefs dissolve and a new life is revealed. We don’t need to experience illness or accidents as a reset button. But if we do experience them, it doesn’t mean we’ve done something wrong—and hence are to blame. That’s the first place the ego always goes. And if you keep going there, your life won’t be easy. Maybe not for lifetimes.
Please remember that all this ego development and even childhood wounding serve a Divine purpose. The overstimulated nervous system of your childhood acts like a psychological cocoon, guarding the sleeping butterfly of your original innocence.
Meanwhile, your ego helps you develop the skills and experience you need to accomplish your Soul’s mission—the Divine adventure you are on. When you recognize your overstimulated nervous system for what it is, you no longer take what happens to you so personally. You observe it. Unconditionally. And you become fascinated by how your world opens up as you relax. Like a flower. Petal by petal. Organically, in its own time.”
