There's a belief that if you do everything "right", the Universe will deliver nothing but goodness in your life.
Being a person that understands Universal Law and Hermetic Principles, I can definitely understand that train of thought to an extent. I too believed that once upon a time. Then I developed this thing called discernment and it helped me to process the information but also use common sense. The truth is, no matter how good you treat others, think and speak positively, sh*t is bound to go in a way you don't dig.
See the truth is, we live in an imperfect world.
Perfection is a joke, yet we chase it constantly. We torment ourselves with the expectation of what should and should not be. The bottom line is that some stuff just IS.
We've all been though challenges and tragedies where we try to make sense of things. We may ask why me? I've done everything right. How could this happen? Those are not the right questions to ask.
The only thing you can control in this life is YOU. What I mean by that is, you can will things to be, to set things in motion. How the Universe interprets what has been received is a totally different ball game.
Life is all about balance.
While you can have all of the understanding of Spiritual/Universal Laws & principles, you still are a human in the physical realm. This realm isn't perfect. It's forever changing, and nothing is permanent. As the saying goes:
In this world of change, nothing which comes stays, and nothing which goes is lost. - Sophie Swetchine
So, when f*cked up sh*t happens, it's not because you're wrong, you've not done enough or you're not worthy of good things. F*cked up sh*t happens to push you to grow in ways beyond your comprehension. You will be challenged in ways you never thought possible and will be forced to decide- push through or fall through. Which one will you choose?
Despite this BE YOU! Whatever your version of being a good person is, as being a good person is subjective. We've all been the bad guy in situations but we tend to skim over that. In our Me Mythology, we've only been the greatest, done the best by others and though the highest thoughts. That isn't reality!
The reality is, JUST BE YOU!
Life will throw all kinds of sh*t at you but it's up to you how you deal with it. Everyone has their own struggles, no matter how pretty they make it look on the outside. AS an Intimate Alchemist, you do yourself a disservice by expecting perfection in a realm that is incapable of meeting that expectation.
Has there been a time in your life you experienced trauma, loss, heartbreak, failure etc., and at the time you didn't feel powerful? How did you deal with it? What was the lesson?
Peace, Passion & Positive Vibes!
