The essence of spiritual practice is change - the self-transformation kinda change. If you are on any spiritual path you have to be ready and willing to not fit in where you used to, with the people you used to and or the way you're used to.
There is a delicate balance between self-care and care for others. We want to be there for others, but if we are doing it to the detriment of our own wellbeing, we are doing a great disservice to who we are.
We are trained to be grateful for getting the things we want, but we can and need to become equally grateful for the things that we don't get, and the wonderful and unexpected opportunities and gifts that those absences bestow upon us.
"Quality transformers" are people who can turn walls of resistance into bridges of understanding, who can change any obstacle into a stepping stone of success, and who can reverse the dragon of doubt into radiant self-confidence, dissolving the thought "impossible" from the mind.
There is nothing wrong with manifesting the life we dream of, but the real secret is even after we manifest our imagined life, we won't truly live our bliss until we have a loving and healthy relationship with ourselves.
Anyone who has traveled the rocky roads of self-transformation can tell you that embarking on a journey of discovery is not for the faint at heart. It requires a warrior's heart and a fierce determination to conquer the unknown.
