How Witches Realize that it Doesn’t Always Require Struggle

“How is giving insulin injections to your diabetic cat going?” my friend, Sarah, asked.

“I’m so afraid he’s going to become scared of me. He’ll think, ‘She’s the one who keeps jabbing me with that pointed thing.’ And then he’ll run away from me,” I replied.

But then some days later, my cat somehow became accustomed to the situation. I’d give him the injection, and then I’d pet him. And, he would follow me upstairs for more special scratches on his head and behind his ears. Evidently, he would forgive me quickly.

By the way, with the insulin shots, he seemed to have become years younger – full of energy.

My point is: I had been so concerned about giving my cat insulin injections, I built up dread in my own feelings.

I’ve learned that some things do not require struggle.

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard …” – President John F. Kennedy

Have you noticed that some of us think that something is good and virtuous because it’s hard to do?

On the other hand, when you become used to it, having a meditation practice (of just 5 minutes a day) can become kind of easy.

And even giving insulin injections to my cat became kind of easy.

Here’s a prayer:

Free me from overvaluing struggle
Let the ease of life be revealed to me.
Like a new dawn’s brilliant light.
Like eagles gliding on wind.
I ask my heart You mend.
So Mote It Be.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
