What messes up your life is the seed of your wisdom
What messes up your life is the seed of your wisdom!

Use your problems as your guide to your growth.

If you feel messed up, take a step back and study yourself, especially the inner stories you spin.

Don’t just believe them.

Don’t fall under their spell.

And don’t try to meditate them away by blissing out in order to detach from your problems.

Why? Because doing so dissociates you from your growth process.

Use mindfulness and self reflection to work on your issues, not to run from them.

Ask yourself these questions:

What kind of wisdom would you need to overcome your problem?

Can you imagine (see and feel) what having this wisdom would be like?

What stops you from accessing and acting on this wise part of yourself?

Your problem is the beginning of your enlightenment!
