Insight Course: Lesson 13

Core Life Challenges

A journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step  ~  Lao Tsu

Possibly the most powerful action we can take to be the change is to explore deep within ourselves to find the places where either consciously or unconsciously we are blocking the infinite energy within us and not supporting what's best for ourselves and for all of us.

Each of us has core beliefs or core challenges in life which keep us from being all that we can be. When we embrace these challenges as potent lessons waiting to be learned, we can then learn to dance with them and eventually transform them so that they fully support us in being the change we want to see.

The engaging four-page essay below relates the story of a courageous woman who went through incredible adversity early in life, only to later recognize her challenging core beliefs and then choose to transform them. As she gradually came to see even her previous suffering as a blessing in disguise, the deep emotional wounds inside of her began to heal.

In her process of transformation, the author was gradually able to recognize the dark episodes of her past, and even the dark sides of herself, as potent teachers which eventually gave her deep compassion and the ability to heal herself and others. As another rich reminder of the importance of honoring the light, the shadow, and all parts of ourselves, read the below inspiring poem, Embracing All.

When we learn to dance with the light and the darkness from a place of love, miracles abound. Now for a powerful one-minute video showing what happened when certain individuals transformed major shadows in their lives, watch the inspiring video below.
