Everything you see or experience: every business, personality, pleasure or problem … everything … is an expression of our collective desires.
Some of those desires are conscious; others are not.
Because everything aforementioned is also a part of the divine; the totality of the universe from which we have evolved, it follows that everything you see or experience also represents a part of the divine.
If you think about that, there is nothing, no matter how painful it may be, that wasn’t ‘meant to be’, or that doesn’t serve a purpose.
That purpose isn’t always obvious or welcome initially, but rest assured that there is something to learn and grow from in everything.
