Any real intention we set for ourselves to rise above our present level of being is going to reveal a lower level of self that doesn't want to change. This is a powerful spiritual law that creates both challenge and opportunity at the same time. The challenge: agreeing to see how our unconscious nature -- encased and enchanted by its own negative reactions -- is incapable of doing anything other than resisting unwanted moments. The opportunity: to win the freedom born of dying to this lower nature each time we're shown who (and what) we can no longer agree to be.
Negativity is inexcusable.
