Sometimes life seems like a mini series of crisis after crisis. We wake up and go through motions without really ever existing. We allow every experience to overcome us unfortunately until one tragedy ultimately brings us to our knees.

Thats when we wake up. That’s when we understand with our entire Being that life is not our experiences but something more profound.

External events are there to guide and teach us. They are there to push us into becoming our best Self. We stumble and fall from time to time but we understand we must get back up.

Faith allows us to recognize the challenges that surface exist so that we can learn to separate from them and come to terms with our own existence firsthand.

We are not our experiences and the sooner we recognize that, the sooner we go on living in Truth.

The thing about greatness is that sometimes it is derived from darkness.

While experience may seem grim at times, we always rise above.
