Imagine a guy who is about to close a huge contract and make a lot of money. Just before it happens, the deal falls through, and he ends up with nothing. He invested so much time, energy, effort, and then poof it is gone. It is all taken away. Most of us would probably think to ourselves, “Oh man, tough break; too bad for that guy.” Right? But what if I told you that’s not the case?
What if I told you that in the bigger picture of this man’s spiritual growth, losing this contract was going to give him the humility he needed for an even bigger deal down the line. Had he gotten it, he would have become too egotistical, losing his connection to his inner Light. Undergoing that “setback” was the way the universe allowed him to find himself with a stronger, more powerful consciousness.
The idea here is that true reward is not about what we get in the physical world. It is not the honor, respect, or money we make. The real reward is that which we gain through our evolution. Sometimes there are highs, and sometimes there are lows, but the constant is that the Light is always with us.
