Student says: “I’m very discouraged. What should I do?” Master says: “Encourage others.”
Sometimes, when everything else feels like it is falling short of giving you the depth of encouragement you are most seeking, that is the moment when perhaps you might dig deepest within yourself and find something to share with another.
It plays against logic, for if you are running on empty, how would there be anything left to share? But that is the magic of the experience. Sometimes, finding that last morsel of depth within oneself can be the greatest catalyst of them all.
We have all heard the adage that it is better to give than it is to receive. The truth behind the adage is that only in the process of being in service through your own choice and determination can you truly make the greatest gains in life.
Apologies for the delay in this morning musing, I opted to be down at the beach to watch the sun majestically rise and I think my mind and soul needed the remaining sleep upon return to summon these thoughts for the day. Happiest of Sundays!!🌞
