Hello fellow “ordinary guru seeking” tribe members. I love it when you folks have the courage to step up and ask deeply probing questions. (See Dina’s inquiry below)
I have a question that I would appreciate your insight on. When you say each one of us struggles in some area of our lives, does that mean we can’t reach excellence in each and every area of our life? There are many people who are wealthy, have successful businesses, excellent health, enjoy inner peace/ mental clarity and have harmonious relationships so they are successful in all areas. However, for sure from time to time they experience negative energy or something negative might happen to them but that does not mean they struggle in one area? Am I missing something here?
It seems we human beings are more proficient in some of the domains in which we live – mentally, spiritually, socially, emotionally, financially, family, physically – than in others. That is part of the marvelous journey as a human being. If someone claims to be at the top of their game in all seven domains, they are either a fully realized being (the likes of Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Emerson, Lao Tsu) or they are fibbing. Not being proficient in all the domains of living is what makes the game of life so wonderfully puzzling. Think your challenges are large enough to contain you? Think this earth is your only home? Heavens NO, Dina! All of this is but a small part of so much more that there is of you. Now that’s a conversation for another time.
Blessings to you, Rob
Are you not growing by constantly dying of the old you that couldn’t have the breakthrough you needed to succeed in one of the domains of living? Are you not constantly growing by dying of that identity that says “NO” to living fully and freely?
Blessings & love to all of you
PS Much like the hamster on the wheel – human beings run endlessly only to arrive nowhere new … unless they let go of the identity that placed them on that wheel.
