Episode Two Hundred Twenty One, An Astronomical Question

We all have individual ways of understanding things. Our thoughts are wrapped around expectations and our feelings about what we expect often trap us into missing important details and intentions. The benevolence of a teaching in life is often shrouded in what feels like trickery. We move ahead armed with expectations and it is under this shielding where the realignment or new knowledge sometimes needs to take seed. This trickery sometimes feels shocking and brutal. It is often misunderstood and taken as a punishment when it is actually the power of love moving in , around, and through the things we have misappropriated in our lives. It is actually an inspiring medicine and, when taken as directed, gives us just what we need.

Thank you for listening.
