"Káa tó dé ibi tí à ńlọ, a lè kọ́kọ́ dé ibi tí a ò fẹ́" A person may have to get to where he'd rather not be before getting to his destination. This is a tough lesson! When things are not going well, you want relief. You want the pain to subside. You envision how much better life could be if you had another job, another place to live or another partner. If only it were so simple! If only you could change your reality with a touch of a single button. And while some people would lead you to believe that this is really possible, the truth is, these are only superficial, short term make-overs. Before long you'll be right back where you started. The reason is because, wherever you go, there you are. So, if you really want your life to get better, YOU have to get better. It's not about your job. It's not about where you live. It's not about your partner. You chose all of those elements precisely because - on some level - you knew that they would provide exactly the kinds of challenges that would reveal your weaknesses and internal contradictions. It's only through meeting those challenges and transcending them that you can live the medicine that will heal your life and heal the lives of the people you're destined to serve. Here's the reason why; spiritual development hides itself inside of personal problems. And so, as you learn to slow down and REALLY deal with yourself from the inside out, you're actually addressing everything from paying off ancestral debt to satisfying your personal destiny.
