Quote: The only way around is through. — Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963) American Poet
Parable: They stood together resting, contemplating the future, remembering with wonder their past. They viewed this place. None had been here before, but it was familiar. They knew they were safe, and they were at peace. There was an effortless familiarity. They were all kindred spirits. This group had reached this present moment with an eye on their individual path; yet none were loners. They knew there were other groups with similar accomplishments who had made it this far by knowing each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and had committed to teamwork. They realized the future goal may be interesting, but they also knew now was forever unique. They all realized there is always more of value to choose from, and to recognize its worth is the first step in making it a part of themselves; only then is it a tool to be used.
They moved easily here knowing this was the time to recharge, relax, rest, rejuvenate, recreate, and receive new information. The next step was study and preparation for the stage of action soon to follow. They knew the pattern well. They had learned what pace was possible as long as they were aligned with their flow. It was still a temptation to observe those in a different flow, and go too fast or too slow. But it was getting easier to move with confidence into another stream if it was a continuation of their perfect progress.
Affirmation: I give thanks that I am divinely equipped to accomplish great things with ease. — Catherine Ponder (1927-) American Minister, The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity
