Inspiration: Obstacles

For today, a quotation from US Airborne Ranger-turned-yogi Rolf Gates’s book Meditations from the Mat:

“The obstacles in the path are the path.”

I can struggle with this one, rankling under what I might first interpret as an injustice, some unexpected delay in my happy planning. But if I remember this quote I begin to reframe my perception of the challenge, seeing it as an opportunity for growth, from which I’ll likely emerge better prepared for what’s next.

From my own thoughts:

“Life is easier if we accept that it is challenging.”
