It is the nature of the Soul to move forward and upward and, therefore, your experiences will sometimes reflect greater challenges, obstacles, and tests to keep you in upward motion. Not all of them are positive. You might encounter unpleasantness and pain if you are stagnant, but you will be shoved forward through those challenges. It might not look like it at the time, but you can be sure the spiritual Law of Progress works for all of us.
If you are active and grow through your own doing, learning your lessons along the way, those challenges will lessen and you will live a calmer, happier, more peaceful life. By doing so, you are naturally flowing and working with the Universal current. You are not fighting against yourself.
We need to constantly expand and learn in order to stay stimulated. So pick up a new hobby, read more, learn a new trade, start a new career that you have dreamt about for a long time, or go to school to improve what you are doing right now. Start whatever you think will make you happy. Have the courage for change!
We cannot sit idle and expect things to change. Unless we start right now by changing our part of the world, it will continue to appear the same to us. Yes, we must be the change that we want our mental mirror to reflect back to us!
