"No short cuts ... these must be lived, must be experienced by each and every soul." Please allow these words to sink in ... for it seems that nearly everyone is looking for a "faster way" or an "easier way" to get to the end result ... and many times it is simply not okay to do this! There truly are NO short cuts ... I even had a dream one time that showed this to me some years ago! We need to move through every facet of what is missing or misaligned, in our life, so that we may be able to fill in the blanks with what it is that we need have, in order to first, understand, and then after this, to experience this same understanding in our life experiences in order to integrate it all into a whole that will help us grow into the wisdom that we need. A little here and a little there - and it often takes decades - and in some instances, most of a lifetime (and sometimes, something may happen say in your 20's, that will connect and finally make sense in your 50's 60's or 70's ... so just be aware of this works) - in order to do this adequately. So, don't try to rush it ... be patient, and simply follow what you feel that you need, whenever it may come into your awareness ... these are the threads in your life that will take you through whatever it is that is necessary in order to grow spiritually. And follow your passion, as well, for the heart truly knows what you love and where it is that you need to go to become fulfilled in your life ... and it will take you there if you will allow yourself to follow those feelings when they present themselves. So, these are the parts that need to be worked with in order to become a whole person ... and remember to also know your Ideals and live them, learn not to judge but to simply observe until you come to know the truth for sure, and then learn to nurture your feelings so that you may know your truth with every experience. In time, the whole picture will emerge, especially later in your life, and then you will look back wonder how it was that you didn't see it to begin with ... for, you will be there by then.
