The willingness and determination to rise up from the ashes is essentially the hallmark of why we exit on this tough and challenging planet. Adversities come and go, and yet the meaning we assign, and the virtues we master (or not) as a result of the experiences we live, are what remain with us at our Soul level. We carry the virtues we have mastered (or yet to be mastered) from life to life, incarnation to incarnation, body to body.
The imprints can remain as traumas, deeply scaring our mind, leading us towards living a life founded on fear and survival. Or we can choose to transcend the traumas and integrate the virtues, that enable us to live a life of virtue founded on liberation and self-mastery. The decision of whether we remain a prey to life’s circumstance is ours to make. Rising up from the ashes however bestows upon us a sense of authentic power that is all so expansive and illuminating. We don’t just rise, but we fly. We spread our wings, and we proudly stand upon the ashes that once served as adversities, and claim, that in fact, the adversities served as powerful teachers towards the art of transmutation. Transmuting the pain and suffering in to meaning and purpose is what we humans are here to experience and master. Mastering energy and its transmutation process is essentially what the earth school teaches us. Some repeat the lessons over and over, yet despite its repetition, something wonderful still occurs, the insights penetrate others in meaningful and illuminating ways. When we are willing to rise despite life’s trials and tribulations, life on earth becomes a rich playground for our own and the collective sense of mastery, serving as a potent path to liberation from the illusions encountered in life.
