Life was not meant to be a struggle, but on the earth plane, it oftentimes is just that. It has become a motivating influence to many and serves to influence those by what it portends. So in the struggle, the doings do sometimes occur ritualistically and perhaps other times they occur out of inspiration. It is the inspirational aspect that we focus upon here.
And so struggle does produce something of value. You see, all things are of value in this sort of schoolroom. Yes, it is a schoolroom of sorts. It is truly more about the experiences sought ... to feel this way or that.
When you struggle and you focus on struggle, Universe believes that this is what you are wanting and sends you more of that. If however, you do not want to continue in your struggle, then focus on what you have right now. And how you might expand it. Might you prefer this over that? Bring to your doorstep what is preferred instead.
