I received this from The Inner Journey Newsletter and found it to be both relevant and timely...

"No matter what our difficulties may be,
recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream
flowing below all surface troubles
and that we are of one substance with this stream.
The soul knows no difficulties."
- James Thornton

"True self simply refers to the aspect of our being
that is completely aware of its expanded nature
no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives."
- Martia Nelson

Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time - from the personality and from the soul.

Author Pema Chodron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at the same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is infolding perfectly.

Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality - shifts our experience of the discomforts.
