I was brought up in the Judeo-Christian tradition, as I know many of you were. We were taught the only road to success was hard work through pain and struggle. I bought into that perspective for much of my life. But no more.

Here’s Spirit.


We talk with many humans struggling in so many aspects of their lives — work, relationships, health, even their spiritual paths. It does not have to be this way. As we’ve said many times, you certainly can grow through struggle and pain. That’s one path you can choose. Another choice is the path of joy.

Either path works. All paths lead home. But why not choose the easier one?

Many of you have been taught (brainwashed) to believe if your life is easy, then you’re doing something wrong. When life becomes easy you just know it can’t last, and something is going to go wrong. Usually, because you expect it, something does go wrong. After all, you create your own experiences.

If you could see yourselves and your lives as we do, you would feel a huge sense of relief and joy. Even though you create all your life experiences — and often, the “wrong” experiences — we know whatever you are creating and living is for your highest and best good.

Sure, you can choose the path of struggle and pain. Or you can choose the path of joy. It’s your choice. But whatever choice you’ve made, you can change your mind (and your life) in a heartbeat.

Life was not meant to be a struggle. It was meant to be a joy. It was meant to be fun, even in the midst of challenges.

The universe is on your side. God is on your side. The angels are on your side.

Life is on your side. Go with the flow of life.
