I love it when I read something and automatically feel the truth of it. I think of this quote as kind of like the 1993 movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. In the film he had to keep repeating the day over and over until he got it right, whereas we get to take on each day, seven days a week, and try again. I’m not sure if we need to achieve mastery, but we do need to keep figuring “our stuff” out!
Every day is a new day. We can learn from different angles what doesn’t work, what we could have done differently, what did work, or what we want to try the next time. To Pass Go we might even get away with a grade of a B+ or an A-. I don’t think it has to necessarily be that we aced the test. We just need to get close enough that the energy moves on through.
I like the relax part of this quote because energy doesn’t move well when we’re stressed or resisting. By the end of Groundhog Day, Bill Murray’s character has gone from quite frantic to very chill because he’d had to work out all of the kinks in his one day. He’d figured out his stuff and was able to move forward instead of rewinding once again.
When we learn to work with energy instead of against it, we help ourselves flow in the right direction, allowing ourselves to move from Point A to Point B with more grace and less fuss. To be able to start fresh allows space to open up for possibility, and that’s where creation’s seeds are planted. Keep on keeping on!
