Persistence is an exercise of the mind, much like physical exertion is for the body. Honing the will and directing intention, while strengthening the link between fantasy and reality, or rather heaven & earth.
A firm determination is required to materialize imagination, through the practice of persistence, we build a foundation where thoughts come alive,creating a breeding ground for miracles.
Neurology offers us insight into the powers of intention and how it may affect our lives. Each impulse to move comes directly from our brain, sending a signal through our nervous system, thus creating movement.
Through the persistent practice of physical movement, a neurological groove becomes etched in by which a connection between the body and brain is increased.
As well, outside our perceptual walls of consciousness, exists an energetic web, much like our nervous system, which connects all beings, sentient and otherwise. Just as the recognizance of our divinity within grants us the inheritance of our true nature, the divine extends beyond our personal "I."
Persistence offers us the ability to lead our lives based upon the divinity within all, even when it seems as though the divine appears to be like a complete stranger to others. One's will to live and act out according to their own understanding of life and relationships will most often be challenged many times.
The maintenance of one's own connection with the divine is important to staying the course. Expressing elements of divinity is not always met with an amiable reply when communicating with others, and it's very easy to feel disappointed, thinking that "nobody else cares, why should I?"
The most potent tool of teaching is by example, choose to live out what you know to be a true and honest way. The reward of your actions is its very own, as the gift and the giver are as one, remember that your way is representative of all.
