given the choice between ease and hard, the choice seems rather
obvious. Yet life as a personality is created through trial and error.
This implies that the choice, although obvious, is not the one always

As personalities, we exist in polarity. We learn through
right and wrong. As minds, we categorize life events as good and bad.
When we step outside the confines of this polarity we have entered into
the domain of higher flows. It may be that our minds view a moment from
a larger perspective. Or that our hearts open to the compassion of our
Souls when faced with challenges with a loved one. But how can we make
this perspective common ground, a pervasive companion in our daily

added to the presence of ease? How have they detracted?
time we recognize the choices the personality makes, both conscious and
unconscious, we learn about ourselves more fully. We may recognize that
we are not yet using all of our gifts. We may notice previously unseen

align with ease, we recognize choice and we expand our awareness to
include all the parts of who we are.
