HumanHints, today ‘Outgrow Your Obstacles’

human_hints_logoWe all have problems in life. Whether we call them opportunities, challenges, or roadblocks, resistance by any other name still requires more time and energy than grace.

We have always focused on overcoming our problems, but to overcome invokes stress, resistance, fighting to overpower what is in our way. This is ego’s way of handling obstacles. It seeks to obliterate the opposition, which is the foundation of war. Ego cannot think beyond basic survival, and it has protected us in the three dimensional world based on Separation. Now that we’re shifting into four dimensions based on Unity, Ego’s old ways will only hold us back. We are shifting into a new reference point for personal expression.
