"When we feel lost or uncertain, drifting away from our practice (and source), blocked from our own truth, it helps to remember that darkness and confusion, too, are part of the path."
We all are given challenges, we also are given human potential for growth. I realize when I am feeling disconnection in my reality, I am ultimately shedding these layers to expand.
"Each step forward (in our practice) is a step inward"
~words from Meditations from the Mat, by Rolf Gates
