How are you raising yourself and others up?
The strength of your will can carry you forward as you reflect on what you hope to achieve in this life. Upon closer examination of the course you have set for yourself, you may come to recognise that your current rate of goal realisation is causing you to fall behind slightly in the pursuit of your purpose.
You may be delighted to discover how assertive you can be when you want to move forward more quickly. This can be a good time to take on a greater degrees of responsibility at work, home, or in the community.
One of the best ways to demonstrate that we are comfortable with the level of responsibility we currently shoulder is to expand our efforts so that we are once again challenging ourselves. We often do not realise how broad our potential really is because we have never seen the extent of our capabilities. The more proactive we are about undertaking new duties and obligations, the more others will sit up and take notice of our talents and abilities.
Though the extra work we do may not be recognised as vital at first, the people with whom we share our environments will soon come to realise that we are worthy of their further consideration and be more than willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Your assertiveness will take you further, and it is likely that you will not stop pushing yourself just because you can.
In all ways, be gentle and patient with yourself and others as you expand, rise, and work to support and encourage others in elevating and thriving in the world. Shine your light bright on the path so others can see their way home.
Be loving. Be kind. Be compassionate. Be friendly. Reflect on Yoga Sutra 1.33.
