Stay Rooted as You Rise...
This is the secret to unending growth, success, and abundance.
From the analogy of a plant or a tree, think of a farmer who's harvesting fruit trees... The farmer cultivates the soil, plants the seed, waters, weeds, feeds and exposes it to the proper light. Eventually, the seed sprouts and becomes a tree, but all along the farmer continues to nourish its roots. Over time, it starts sprouting fruits, which the farmer harvests and enjoys, all while staying very much focused on the roots.
Whereas the analogy to a lot of individuals, is we may spend time on the seed, the soil, and the roots for a period of time. When we start to get some level of success in our lives, whether it's that we're not in as much pain, or in as much resistance, or we start to feel a level of momentum, we tend to get caught up in the fruits, and stop tending to the roots. Our ego has been programmed to think that what's appearing is where the power, source, and substance is.
It's great to enjoy and celebrate the fruits of your labors; your progress and momentum, but don't forget what got you there. The daily work of cultivating the soil of your soul, doing the inner work of coming into greater congruence and alignment with the vibration of your vision.
Your inner work is the foundation of everything. It's about developing a way of life - it's about changing your ultimate character, which allows you to fulfill your ultimate destiny. It's about falling in love with the process and the practice, with prayer and meditation, visualization, affirmation, and nourishing yourself with high vibrational material as a way of life.
Equally important, it's not so much stay rooted as you rise, but stay rooted even as you fall. Maybe you start experiencing a level of success or progress, but then things start to go downhill. That's the time to build those muscles, that inner soul stamina so that you become stronger and stronger in your capacity to know and feel the truth, and be the truth in the midst of any condition. That's where you become truly unstoppable.
