By challenging yourselves, you grant yourselves an opportunity for discovery. You are all finding new strength that you did not know you had, new abilities that you did not know you had, and new possibilities that you did not know existed. And the reason you have become aware of these new discoveries is because of the challenges you have placed in front of yourselves.
There is no need and no room for punishment in this lifetime, so nothing that comes your way that is unwanted or challenging can be chalked up to bad karma. And karma does not work that way. It is not about punishment. It is about experience.
When you find yourself in the midst of one of these challenges, you all tend to go to new places within your consciousness, and you grant yourselves access to more of your power. But few of you go looking for challenges that seem insurmountable, and we understand why that is. But we also encourage you to embrace the challenge that is before you.
No matter how it may appear, it is there in service to your greatest and highest good. Your greatest and highest good is always the becoming of who you really are, the recognition of your Divinity. This may come as a surprise to some of you, but it is true in the truest sense of the word.
You have your personal goals and desires for yourselves, and you have the becoming and recognition of who you really are. And believe it or not, they are working together. The desires give you the opportunity to experience the challenges, and the challenges give you the opportunity to draw more of who you are forth.
You are always going to find that there is something giving you that sort of opportunity, so you might as well embrace whatever it is that is giving you a chance to know yourselves better, right here and right now.
We are The Founders. We are the keepers of the flame.”
