The natural force of entropy will try to convince us that it is too late to start over, but our soul tells us that every moment is an opportunity to begin again. In fact, growth and perfection can occur in no other way. Evolution is indeed a spiral, but progression up the spiral is as fast as we let go of our apparent position on it. Each time we begin again, we move up a rung, regardless of whether the supposed requirements of the current cycle have been met.
There is nothing written that says enlightenment has to take a long time. The author of that lie has a vested interest in getting us to believe that it does. So we shed our old skins as soon as we become aware of them—when the concrete hardens, we strip away the forms. We must trust in the foundation we have and build upon it and not get stuck in the belief that we have to go back to square one. Why hang onto yesterday?
The Sun again is in its yearly cycle of rebirth. Soon it will purge itself of everything that has not worked. Can we do the same? Easter is approaching. Will we be distracted by the cares of the world, or will we be vigilant to the needs of our soul? Prayer and meditation take no time at all when they are integrated into our daily life. No one ever complains about having to eat; why then should we look upon raising our consciousness as a chore?
