Pyrogen - I've always appreciated your willingness to say things like they are. I want you to know that your truthfulness benefits all kinds of people, especially those that are less vocal on these types of forums.
Drop any comparison in favor of being more present. And celebrate others success like it was your own! I've heard you share some amazing transformations on this forum - I'm sure you have some more wonderful epiphanies to come.
Everyone - Every plant and tree and animal is different, and have different expressions at different times. Same with humans.
One of the biggest hangups can be thinking that we are all equal - we are not. We are all unique and have different ways of expressing and growing, with a variety of layers that want to be explored and expressed. Please everyone, drop any urge to compare yourself with anyone or anything, and simply look to see if you're giving yourself what you need in the moment. That moment will take you to the next moment, whatever it looks like.
And look for the gifts in whatever is happening. A moment of sadness or anger, if we dive into it with consciousness, can bring a moment of joy. Let life change completely - don't hold onto any image of what life "should" look like. Be committed to your vision of what you can become and embrace that as much as you can right now - and allow it to change. Use even your own resistance as a doorway to dive into what you need right now. Use all of life! Then life becomes a blessing, a conscious, effortless journey, instead of struggle.
Please don't take my word for it as something you'll try later - do it right now.
