Daily Insight – Oct. 13 – Endurance
Endurance isn’t based solely on the physical but also the mental and the emotional self. All three are tied together however, for you must draw from inside yourself to endure any of the above.
You may be physically able to run a marathon, but the drive that keeps you running when your body is ready to quit comes from inside.
Learn to use the obstacles in your path as opportunities for growth. Take heed the lessons that come your way and stay steadily focused on the goal ahead.
When you feel as though you can’t walk another mile, take another blow to your heart or make it through another crisis … know that within the embers still burn, the fire may be doused but the embers to once again ignite that fire are there. You can do it. This feeling to stop, give up or quit will pass and you will make it through.
4 Cards lay before me and instead of looking at them separately, I will give you the message they give us together as a whole.
The cards before me are: Security, Fertility, Endurance and Integrity
When we feel secure we are more fruitful in our actions. We do more and accomplish more when we feel that we are in our safe place.
Then moving on to endurance, we are given a message to not let the fires within us go completely out. They may be doused a bit but the embers continue to glow and burn inside us. This tells us that we have what it takes to endure whatever it is life throws at us.
When we have endured hardships we come out of it with much more than material things. We come out of it with knowledge, growth and the knowing that we can overcome.
One of the most important things we can do as we travel our path is to maintain our integrity. Nothing hurts our souls and our growth as much as not acting with integrity. You have to be your own judge of character and as the old saying goes, “do unto others…” if you follow that rule… you surly cannot go wrong.
