In our darkest moments, when we feel as though our faces are planted into the dirt, it is easy to feel isolated, cut off and abandoned. The reality beyond this illusion is, that there is literally a host of spiritual beings watching over our every move. Our teachers, guides and master await our call, so that they may serve us and offer assistance. A great fall offers a great opportunity to see ourselves or our circumstances from a different perspective and grow as a result. If we can avoid judging this situation as a failure and step beyond it, then the rewards will be ours forever.
