Daily Dose of Inspiration

“As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God.”

~ Swami Vivekananda

I have come to know and trust that we are all Spirit living our own unique lives as human beings in order to learn and evolve both as humans and Spirit. And while I strive and want to be my best self always, there are plenty of times when I feel I fall short of that. But then I look back and realize that the mis-take or mis-step, as I saw it at the time, with the resulting suffering and regrets, provided an experience that gave me a much deeper understanding of Life than I could have ever gotten any other way. And this, my friend, begs the question, was it really a mistake?

Sometimes the greater the struggle or the more painful the lesson, the more we gain from it. Have patience and compassion with everyone, my friend, regardless their path, as it could just be that the crooked path is ultimately the faster path for them.

Whether we know it or not, we all headed to the same place.
