I can say with absolute certainty that "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle changed my life. I viewed the world and myself completely differently afterwards. Sometimes we experience tragedy, suffering, paralyzing fear. Everything, is an opportunity for evolution. Everything is an opportunity to learn about ourselves, to realize the barriers we have within us, and to then overcome those barriers. It doesn't always feel good though. In fact, the experiences that push us to grow often feel like absolute shit when we are going through them, and yet, they are perfectly curated moments to point us in the direction our consciousness needs for its own evolution. I know it's hard to remember this concept when you are in the midst of deep darkness but I hope the idea can be at least the smallest glimmer of light, a reminder that everything is going to be okay, and the discomfort you feel is actually evidence you're growing. Happy Weekend!
