The most important task to which you can devote your energy is the project of personal growth. It does not matter which business you are in, what your relationship status is, how old you are or where you live. The energies of these times require that you be about the work of examining your inner self and your inner life.
Do you have the energy to do this important work? Or is all of your energy being drained by day-to-day tasks and leaving you exhausted at the end of the day? Are you devoting energy to non-essential tasks as a way of avoiding doing the personal growth work that you are ready to do?
We wish you to know that EVERYTHING else that you are doing falls into the category of ‘non-essential tasks’ when compared to your personal growth work. Your work tasks. Your household tasks. Your family responsibilities. All of these are non-essential when compared to the work you are to be about to grow yourself and to learn your Soul lessons.
This is not to say that there are not important tasks to do in those other areas, but even as you go about your work you are to be looking for the lesson to be learned while you are doing it. Are you dealing with personal relationship issues? Instead of looking at those issues as isolated from your personal growth work, start examining them for their contribution to your growth – learn the lesson. Instead of waiting until the household chores are done, look for what is to be learned while doing them. For example, are you doing chores that someone else in the family might take over as they learn to share responsibilities? Are you escaping something by committing your time to the chores rather than to something else that might be more enriching?
Likewise, when you are doing your work, are you working on how you can grow at work rather than how you can get through the day so you can relax?
Remember that every situation in which you find yourself is a learning opportunity for you. Every situation at work holds some treasure for you to experience and from which you can grow. Every relationship is a crucible in which your personal growth is developing. Create for yourself the ‘Lens of Learning’ so that you are constantly reminding yourself to look for the lesson, no matter what task you are engaged in and no matter what is happening around you. There is always something to learn.
Bless the other people around you for bringing those lessons to you within the context of your interactions. You can do your personal growth work within the timeframe of the other activities on your schedule. There is no burden to this work – it is the purpose of living a lifetime on Planet Earth!
And so we would ask you to look to your current situation and schedule to find the energy to do the personal growth work that is yours to do. Of course, you must sometimes find time to go inside in the quiet times to reach those places that need to be examined, to find the ‘stretch points’ that take you in quantum leaps in your growth. For this work you might engage a guide to assist you and to hold the Light on the work you are doing. But you can take your current calendar and find the perfect opportunities for personal growth by simply employing your ‘Lens of Learning’ as you look at the tasks on your to-do list.
Use every opportunity presented to you as an opportunity for growth!
And so it is.
