One of the most radical perspectives of conscious living is to see every person, condition and circumstance in our lives as an ally, perfectly suited to help us learn the most important things for our growth.
That is an outrageous way to view the “shit” in our lives, because we choose to believe that there is no “shit,” only blessing, no matter who or what happens.
Let’s take a nasty divorce as an example. We can hate our ex and the whole “shitty” experience or we can see them and the experience as an ally, perfectly suited to help us grow in self-awareness.
When you see your ex and your divorce as an ally for your learning and growth, you actually become grateful—truly appreciative—for both.
If you make this shift in consciousness, then you’ll notice you won’t complain or moan to any friends or family about either. You’ll be grateful that they happened. In fact, on the deepest level, you wouldn’t want life to have gone any other way.
Now that, my friends, is a radical (and liberating) perspective to have. You become a truly grateful person, even when your heart is broken and tears are rolling down your face.
