Whilst we are growing in strength in this world and have yet to demonstrate that the lotus grows even in mud, it is wise to call upon higher beings who are keen to help and share their Light with us, to raise our spirits above the mire of the unconscious and elevate our conscious minds to the level of the spirit where we recognise ourselves as essentially positive, purposeful, joyful and loving. Even a temporary dose of this uplifting experience, this taste of the reality at our core, can be enough to keep us afloat and prevent us from sinking back down into despair.
"'After all this time, it seems to me like straight and fast is the only way out - but I choose the labyrinth. The labyrinth blows, but I choose it.'” – John Green (Looking for Alaska, 2006).
"Do not say: 'Find me a strong protector, for one in my city has injured me.' And say not: 'Find me a redeemer, for one who hates me has done me harm.' Surely, you know not the plans of God and cannot see tomorrow. Settle down, then, in the hands of God. And your self‑mastery in silence will overthrow them. For ancient and deep is the fear of the crocodile who makes no sound." – Ancient Khemetic (Egyptian) proverb (an excerpt from The Husia in the Book of Amenomope).
