A Joyous Struggle

Whenever I complain, and

I seem to complain much more than

I care to admit, or even

Remember, Spirit tells me,

In a pleasant and assuring manner, that,

If walking the Path of Enlightenment

Is not a struggle, then

I’m not on the path at all,

But only pretending to be, or

Into denial or illusion.


But, I protest,

Where is the joy?

Then Spirit gently tells me that

The struggle for awareness is

A joyous struggle if

I will only allow it to be.
