During an exchange with the Seer, I watched a sparrow try to grab and carry away a grasshopper multiple times. The grasshopper was not impressed and soon the sparrow gave up. (Sparrow dream symbolism: fun, joy, being carefree. Grasshopper: destruction producing blessings.) The Seer interprets…
Because of the excessive value placed on having fun, we tend to overlook the fact that discomfort may be the better teacher. Discomfort prompts change, and change requires adjusting to the destructuring of the old and embracing the new. This brings vitality to life's journey and strength of character to the one wise enough to see the potential blessings of the new.
This reminds me of how resistance training also fortifies and vitalizes the mind. How can we develop a mindset for accepting, even embracing, discomfort?
Do one thing that is hard to do each day. Begin by taking daily cold showers. Those who take cold showers make better soldiers.
