As we have seen, there are many things that can distract us from our purpose. All day, everyday detours will come in front of us. We may think of these as temptations, all of the ego issues come to us in enticing forms which tend to obscure our best intentions. We can avoid the pull of these illusory cravings by simply putting our attention on what we really want. Forgiving the entire world seems like a big task and we may want to avoid the work; that’s why the ego presents alternatives. Our function of forgiveness is our true happiness, but our small self does not want to accept that. So, we must be resolute. Let us insist on the Love that is ours, refusing any substitutes. Devotion to our mission brings its own strength. Tireless because spirit provides divine endurance, we continue to move forward on our path. We can only burn out when we pursue goals that are not in alignment with goodwill.
