Cycles. All of life follows them. You experience a period of heightened connection, thinking it is the new norm, and then the connection drops off a bit. Do not be discouraged. Each time you cycle, you go a bit higher, for these are not closed cycles when referring to the soul’s evolution and that of humanity. It is ever onward, and thus upward, if not with its temporary setbacks from time to time. Do not be discouraged by these words, for by now are you not used to the pattern of Life? And have you not progressed? Yes, of course. Continue with all diligence your practice and make note of the cycles. This, too, is part of the practice: patience and understanding.

You are so very loved.
