Growth provides the second key to your empowerment. It is the second aspect of the sixteenth truth of Ifa.
We are in a constant process of growth and change. Many people ask me when it ends. The truth is, it never does. The purpose of life is to evolve. In order to align ourselves with Universal evolution we must grow and evolve within our lifetimes.
Don’t mistake this continual growth for a constant digging for issues. It is critical to release emotional, karmic, and ancestral baggage that stands in the way of our development. These are the only “issues” that we need to work on.
Each of us has an infinite world of hurt inside us. It is far too easy to get lost in this world. There is a lifetime of “shadow work” to be done. Our base impulses, and the emotions that trigger them, are not going anywhere. They are part of our evolutionary heritage. Accept them. Rise above them.
Once we are clear enough life starts to flow. We engage in a more positive way. We feel good a lot of the time. It can be tempting to say “That’s it, I’m done.” and rest with the status quo.
It may seem almost impossible to push forward beyond this comfortable place. But, push you must. Once you have stabilized in a more positive world-view your work is expanding your consciousness.
For the first time in the history of our planet, and perhaps the Universe, there are beings that are capable of self-awareness. We are beginning to awaken to a deeper reality that rests at our cores. It is the spark of life that we call Olodumare. Olodumare is becoming aware of itself through you.
Our ultimate spiritual purpose is to align with that evolutionary impulse and to harness our uniqueness in its service. We must express more joy, love, and harmony in the process, come together to become more. Always reaching forward.
This may sound exhausting, but, when you get caught up in the flow there is infinite energy is available to you. Do you feel the pull of the Universe calling you to grow? I’d love to hear why, or why not.
