alfredWhy do we fall sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up. – Alfred Pennyworth

It has taken me time to accept that life’s difficulties are not a form of punishment sent my way by a karmic God. If my spiritual health is waning life’s challenges can easily push me into self-pity, frustration and resentment. I have heard from several sources that we are obligated to continue experiencing these destructive feelings until we ‘learn to pick ourselves up’. The more times I face these emotional time-bombs and safely defuse them the more able I am to face them next time. Eventually, with willingness, honesty and open-mindedness, I learn that life isn’t against me and the karmic God is my own creation with no more power than I have. Life has knocked me down many times. With recovery, faith and a divine grace I am getting up and getting better.
