The person I live with is a leader in the motion picture industry, so I know firsthand how we can get trapped up in all that appears to be gold. I want out! I came into this relationship with hopes of making my own career. I have had some minor success, but nothing to really allow me the independence that I was looking for. I want to move on from this life but feel trapped financially. I must find a job to free myself and need the faith to do so. I feel stuck on a child-like level of need. I am at the end, but have been here many times before.
Lessons ride in on the back of events, and when certain painful conditions continue to reappear in our lives, we can be sure that we're not heeding what the moment wants us to see. There's no easy way out of any trap we have allowed ourselves to step into; that's for sure. But, equally certain is this: Life, real life (and the Love behind it), never reveals to us something about ourselves -- (and our situation is always a direct reflection of present level of self) -- that doesn't hold within it the possibility of transcending what we've been given to see. Again, letting go and leaving behind us (even something miserable) is never easy; but each time we agree to go through what we know is true, for the sake of the Truth that made possible our initial revelation (for the need to change our life), we can be sure something better, brighter awaits us. Act on what you know is true... which means consciously turning a deaf ear to the fear that can't wait to "tell" you about some impending darkness. Persist with your wish to be free... and you will find a way out. You are not alone.
