Ladder of Life
In much of the time we walked in the earthly journey tied to uncertainty, doubts, ups and downs ... Plans are built and suddenly crumble, creating a climate of dissatisfaction and insecurity intimate. What to do? Understanding these occurrences?
We can think of carnal existence as a long ladder, which consists of several steps. Who is the first step has a landscape view around; who is in the second have another, wider; who is in the third reach beyond; and so on.
However, the reality around is always the same. What changes is the viewing angle and Walker perception capacity, according to their position on that ladder. What was not possible to understand who was the first step, it will soon become better understood when the second step is reached; and so on until the entire frame becomes understandable and clear. That it is determined to continue rising achieve, over time, better understanding of all around, discovering new horizons, always.
This leads us to think and understand, finally, that every moment of our life is essentially transient; and that it only lasts as long as needs last. So, we are not required to park in a single step or a single level of existence. If we were put on that ladder, it is that our destiny is to climb it to reach the top. This is the divine purpose for each of us and for all of us.
So if today things seem gloomy and sad, look at their faith in God and the Sacred Orishas the spirit, enthusiasm and determination to keep walking and walking up the steps of his life.
Think of the seeds sown in the ground: at first, they may seem destined to live and buried, however, have the real destination sprout, grow, bear fruit and generate new seeds, a perfect and continuous chain of life and blessings.
Each of us is like a "seed of God." Our essence is God, we are children of God. That is, God is in us a spark Holy, Full of Light and Life.
This spark, which we are, was put by God to walk in the Ladder of Life, in order to ascend step by step, until reaching the maximum expansion and then be able to reap the fruits of this growth and generate new seeds, buds and fruits.
Let us prepare our hearts for this journey of Light. The eyes of the heart perceive light everywhere and can guide our feet where there seemed to be only darkness. We can not let us hold a point in the path. The stumbling blocks arise is to give us the opportunity for reflection, learning and strengthening, enabling us to continue and reach new heights.
Let us remember that the day succeed the night; that spring follows the winter; the daily cell renewal restores in our physical energies that had been exhausted, preserving life. Finally, let us note that it is renewed perfect and continuously throughout the universe.
Similarly, our inner essence has the ability to renew itself, to strengthen and empower us when we are willing to reflect on the disappointments and disillusions the way. It is walking. We are eternal, imperishable and intended for the top of the climb to the meeting of the Creator lights.
I must, however, learn to seek and realize the light at each point or step of this journey. There is no reason for despondency or waiver: transience, impermanence of things, it's just a divine tool that makes us move forward to bring us to our final and true destiny. What is left behind are the illusions that had to be abandoned.
Believing that we are spirits dressed meat is that we must seek internal forces and react to suffering. Everything can be overcome with faith and determination.
We will learn to get rid of the burden of the past. Accept that stayed behind what we needed in the strip. An enlightened heart knows only retain the fact that experiences matter to our progress. Let us accept that Life enlighten us, sustain and guide.
Let us, together and with determination for our climb. Hands, thoughts and hearts together. We will for sure in the mind and confidence in the heart.
The Eternal Father sustains us and encourages, in each step, with infinite love and compassion, because he understands our limitations, sorrows and times of uncertainty. He trusts that we will learn and awaits us at the top, to make us light with it because we have always been ONE.
