The obvious question that may arise is, how would I know how your life’s troubles are actually a blessing in disguise? What do I know about your issues? How can I tell you that you are already totally amazing in this moment? What credentials do I have to make such blatant statements while I don’t even know you?
In fact, just like you, I have gone through the ups and downs in life and for a good number of years I went through a very challenging period of personal crisis. Whilst in the midst of this crisis I felt my world was falling apart and I could not have imagined that exactly that dark period would turn out to be the most amazing teacher I could have asked for.
This period in my life allowed me to take a good hard look at who I was, what my shadows were, how my thoughts created my reality, what my role in my own life experience was, and how putting my happiness in the hands of the outside world perpetuated the feeling that I was a rag doll to life. Through self-enquiry I came to see how the outside world is a reflection of my inner world and that everything I had always wanted was right there, inside of me, simply waiting to be unleashed. Once I gave myself the permission to be my authentic self, the flow of life just started pouring through me and it has been oozing ever since.
