An opportunity is a situation in which it is possible for something to be done, offering you a genuine new start.
Thought Adjuster: “Your unalienable free-will prerogative presents you with often-stressful alternatives. You have help in this process since your mind is connected to the 7 Adjutant Mind Spirits' benevolent influences: Intuition nudges you in the right direction when you lack all relevant facts. Knowledge keeps an impeccable chain of custody of all available data. Understanding serves as a data processor, while Counsel helps reconcile the feedback of various outside consultants. Wisdom enables you to incorporate in your ever-expanding portfolio hard-earned spiritual insights.
“Every so often, your decisions radically alter the course of your life. If you articulate the firm intention to leave no regrets behind, it will help you summon the courage to go for the most difficult choice of all, knowing that it will yield optimal personal and collective dividends.
“The brave souls who accepted Jesus’ proffered invitation to his inner circle of discipleship made this difficult decision wholeheartedly. By taking Jesus as their spiritual leader, they severed many ties to their former life. They quit their jobs and took on a vagrant lifestyle.
“Have you been called to make such selfless choices? If so, how did they turn out? Whenever there is only one viable option, it seems that you do not have much say in the matter. An evasive or complacent attitude will stifle your spiritual growth and restrict your acquisition of experiential wisdom.
“Your spiritual higher education does come at a price. In hindsight, you can see how your most soul-wrenching choices made you more resilient in body, mind, or soul — or all of the above. The dreaded twists and turns of human living cut a breach in mind dulling routines. Do not discount such growth opportunities, as they are much more than lucky strikes.”
