Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc.
Whatever hurdle you may be facing in your life at this time or at any time in the future—whether it regards health, love, income, family, or career—your true self can overcome it. Life, after all, is an ongoing series of challenges or hurdles. It does not matter how evolved, awakened, or enlightened you are; life still presents many obstacles and problems!
The awakened soul is no more immune to life’s difficulties than the unawakened soul. In fact, in many cases, the awakened souls have more to contend with, simply because they attempt to do so much more in their lives. On the other hand, the unawakened souls, who are content merely to sit and do as little as possible, attempt to slide through life doing only that which is either expected of them or forced upon them. For those souls who do attempt to do more and be more—not just in a worldly sense, but also regarding being a whole and complete person—their real need is to find a greater source of identity or selfhood within themselves.
