Repetition is the Mother of all Learning. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results might be insane, but it's also the definition of persistence. The hardest pushups are the Alpha & Omega pushups, the first and the last ones.
Be not weary. If we are tired, we are drawing from our own finite energy, rather than surrendering to the One who has all Power, which has been gifted to everyone and is always available, free for the taking.
The ego has a hard time believing nothing is wrong in life and would rather spend its days pretending to eat from the tree of the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil.
When something happens, some people complain, and say, "Oh, GREAT!" Others say, "GREAT!" or "Another wonderful opportunity for spiritual growth!"
Don't just fake it. Fake it until you make it.
