Your Conflicts

By A.H. Almaas

Your conflicts,

all the difficult things,

the problematic situations

in your life are not chance or haphazard.

They are actually yours.

 

They are specifically yours,

designed specifically for you

by a part of you that loves you

more than anything else.

 

The part of you that loves you

more than anything else

has created roadblocks

to lead you to yourself.

 

You are not going in the right direction

unless there is something

pricking you in the side,

telling you,

“Look here! This way!”

 

That part of you loves you

so much that it doesn’t want you

to lose the chance.

 

It will go to extreme measures

to wake you up,

it will make you suffer greatly

if you don’t listen.

 

What else can it do?

 

That is its purpose.
