WISDOM FROM THE SEVEN SACRED FLAMES BY AURELIA LOUISE JONES.
FROM ADAMA, HIGH PRIEST OF TELOS:
"Whatever happens in your life, no matter what it is, whether the challenge is small or big, instead of being angry, depressed and bitter, what if you were to say, 'What is it that I can learn and heal from this experience?'
"Surrendering to the lessons you are supposed to learn from challenges is the key to walking through them quickly. Your life changes and you do not have to grapple with the same lessons. You can move on to those that bring you much more joy. Lessons do not always have to be difficult to learn; they become difficult for those who choose to ignore them.
"There are those who have had lifetime after lifetime of not wanting to see, to know or to have anything to do with their lessons.
"Then comes a time when life will no longer allow you to ignore the promptings of your soul, and this is when life can become difficult. It is not required that you grapple with lessons forever. You can move through them quickly until you start out-picturing the manifestation of the beautiful diamond light that you are, and then attain your enlightenment.
"The lessons you are learning manifest because "you" have created them in the first place. It is not that God sends you lessons to annoy you. It is through the misuse of your free will that you have created your lessons and your reality.
"As you take responsibility and look at your lessons and say, 'What is it that I need to learn out of this mess I have created, and what blessings are in it? What is the gift?' Any negative or difficult situation you experience in life can be turned back into something wonderful, if it is approached the right way.
"Even a disease or a financial loss can open the opportunity for greater blessings to manifest once you open your consciousness to receive them."
