“How significant that the rich, black mud of our dead stream produces the water-lily — out of that fertile slime springs this spotless purity!” (Henry David Thoreau)
What if we could recognize that the fertile slime of life is necessary? That means it’s not just bad luck or misfortune that we are having this difficulty, it’s actually necessary for our next step in life, necessary for our spotless purity to burst forth.
Life is filled with inconsistencies — some people find money flows to them easily while others struggle every day to make ends meet; some people find healthy love while others search for someone to love them properly; some eat whatever they want and have great health while others eat healthy diets and still experience sickness.
Life isn’t easier for those who are ‘good people’. Life is an equal opportunity experience, offering everyone exactly what is right for them — the perfect fertile slime to birth their unique purity.
I encourage you to look at the challenges and difficulties of your life as the rich black mud that is feeding your soul, nurturing your exquisite nature to blossom and shine — for your greatest self is being birthed out of fertile slime.
