Life has a very specific way of letting us know whether or not we are doing the right thing and on the right path.
It does so by what it manifests. If we are truly growing and soaring, we are growing and soaring. Growing and soaring has positive measured results.
If we take ten steps forward and then are knocked back 100, that is the Universe calling our bluff.
The Spirit of Truth will not allow us to be psyched out, despite what delusion may be saying. Truth speaks louder and it is absolute and absolute is crystal clear.
We can either listen and make real, sustainable change or we can continue to do the hamster on the wheel thing and pretend its progress.
Those making real progress and advancement know the difference.
