The amazing thing about spiritual practice is that we don’t need to be forced into moments of awareness anymore. Everyday we are given the opportunity to be in conscious partnership with the source.
At some times in our lives we may have been pushed to become more present through sickness, depression, break-up or some other form of suffering. It may still serve a purpose in your life, although you may not feel the need to resist because lessons were learned, and adjustments made.
One is then empowered with the grace to reach higher states of consciousness, which will then consume karmic energy that no longer serves the greater purpose of awakening.
