I think there's a generalised belief in some spiritual circles that when you attain Enlightenment life's trials and tribulations all fall away. You've reached some higher dimensional beach, whereupon, you can chill out and just hang ten. Think again! There is only the process. In Enlightenment the difference is that there's complete recognition of it, a complete surrender to it, and above all, a constant turning into the density that presents, a constant unwinding through. There is no delay in this, there's no resistance to it, there's turning right into the centre of any storm and sailing through. Sometimes the landscape is stormy, sometimes it's peaceful. But the recognition is that true contenment and happiness in life, comes from successfully riding the flow in any moment.
You can do it. Your soul is seeded to do it. Just figure out the process that best navigates you through the flow of life and everything will fall into place - even when everything is out of place!
In loving support
