Be like an iceberg: majority under the water, minority above the water. When we cultivate a strong inner life, we are not so thrown when our external situation is not to our liking.
How do we cultivate a strong inner life? By remembering we are Spirit temporarily on the earth learning. And through using meditation and the third eye to strengthen confidence in our deepest identity in the midst of the ups and downs of our human experience. Meditation and the third eye will also make it easier to know what the specific lessons are in our spiritual growth process.
