Just because you are in the dirt doesn't make you a flower. It is the same with moving forward spiritually. Making a choice and acting on it doesn't guarantee instant results. Just like a flower starts at a seed and has to germinate then grown then bud and then bloom, so do we in our daily lives. There is no portal into it but every day is a path to it. We shouldn't beat ourselves up over the process... just move forward in it. Remember we are all on the journey so look at your friends and family (and those who just grate your nerves!) as people in process! I think it’ll make you see things (and those around you) a little differently... it does me!! Alright y'all let's keep moving forward!!
