Spiritual stamina is to keep going deeper when faced with contrast
Contrast lurks around every corner
It is there to test your spiritual will and growth
Demonstrating unconditional love in the face of contrast exposes God's will held within
Empathizing with someone else's perception defies the ego's expectations
This heals you, expands your consciousness
and frees you from defensive thought patterns
And ultimately, you recognize who you are and your capacity to love.
