Week 20 has been a growth week so far–a bit despondent and a feeling of melancholy, but had a strong realization last night as to the value of the challenge in quest of a life that is exceptional. The casual life without requisite vision and sense of purpose is really living based on precedent–river of dreams stuff, not a life of meaning. I usually participate in a Zoom prayer meeting and last night my prayer connected to a higher dimension of consciousness with the universal, as though the Creator and I were commiserating over the world together. I actually have had that occurrence before, but not to that depth.
Through the aforementioned experience, I was again reminded to notice feelings and not be defeated or deflated by them. In the quest for the exceptional life, what we go through has meaning that we can never understand in the moment. Only by keeping our purpose and vision strong can we hold on through challenges, no matter how they present themselves.
