I truly believe what the great ones have told us: that we are on a journey of Self-discovery. Will we make mistakes? Of course. Should we expect perfection of ourselves at this point? Certainly not.
No matter the bumps along the road, our journey is taking us to connection with our own deepest Self, the awareness of God within us. Pure love, calmness, and joy.
Reminding ourselves of this can help us enjoy our days. The road may be bumpy; we and others may make many blunders, but the end of the journey awaits. Someday we will awaken to our own true nature, our union with the Divine.
We are on our way. There is a deep joy in knowing that.
