Dear Human,

You look for comfort, always. Yet growth isn’t in the moments of ease, it’s in the agony of being stretched. The newborns feel it and they cry, but nonetheless they must go through it in order to become adults. Growing spiritually and mentally is no different. Learning is often wrought with pain and accompanied by many tears. Cry my beloveds, like the babes who know not what to do but scream out in despair. For when the stretching is done, you are different. Your soul is taller, more developed, better able to traverse the path of life.

And this is what it’s all about, these lessons we long to avoid.

Transformation is often full of torment, yet when all is said and done, you are far more in touch with your sacred essence because of the perpetual process of growth.


Your Fellow Space Traveler ~

    Thanks Simon. I have been sooo busy trying to reform our mental health care system at the political level. It’s such hard work. But I finally have a finished ballot measure that will be voted on in Oregon in 2020. Whew!

    I’m fine my friend. I have moved to Austria and hopefully will be married any day now. ❤

  5. Simon says:

    I’m good thanks, is there a reason for the lack of desire? You have been missed ☺️
