 Grin Oh boy, this title makes me laugh. What kind of grief awaits me with this click bait? Lol. Just kiddin' ... I couldn't think of a better way to describe it though... Slightly perplexed, greatly amused, forever grateful.... I am humbled. At a certain point in your pursuit of happiness belief must be firm. I think... That is to say, if you want to believe in something- you need to go for it 110%. Believe in it, even if it seems ridiculous to another. God... Energy... The universe, whatever force IT IS, however we try to describe it- will provide. We may not always understand but I am of the belief that I am receiving communication from forces outside of me at this time. It's not as crazy as it sounds and I don't mean to dress it up as such. I randomly bought a scratch off and won $33. Later I came across matching numbers in a pattern of three on the back of license plates. One morning is 777 and later that evening is 999. Today I saw 888. I am also extremely tired today and am convinced there's a lot of energy going on here. I am noticing these streaks or quick jolts of light moving from the corner of my eye whenever I begin thinking of this Force.
I am convinced, by my own interpretation, that this very personal experience is a supportive energy for me to pursue a Healthier lifestyle. I am SURE there's more to it-- I am SURE others experience this force in different ways. I am also SURE I will fail again. I am trying though... And so to my point- I believe whatever outside force is reaching to my inner and personal life is providing me the energy NOW to carry on with my own test. I am thinking of this energy as building blocks.... And I am given the strength and the support right now to overcome temptation... Atleast for TODAY. Tomorrow is another day... LOL But here we are.... And I had to share after coming back to these post from the Bowl of Saki discussion:

Thinking back on the Saki posted earlier,
Quote
Self-control is the most necessary thing to be learned; a person may have great spirituality, illumination and piety, but in the absence of self-control this is nothing. Self-control also is the way of happiness and peace. ... No thought or feeling should arise without our will. When we have gained mastery over the self, we have mastery over all things. ... Self-control is an attribute which distinguishes man from the animal; both have their appetites and passions, but it is man alone who can control them.

   from  http://wahiduddin.net/mv2/VIII/VIII_1_14.htm
I wonder if it's necessary to test yourself in life and what happens when you fail? I wonder what Inayat Khan would say if we changethe rules to the test we set up for ourselves, after obtaining new insight... ?
We will be tested plenty without we ourselves setting up tests. I have found that the most important part of spiritual life is to control our reactions and when to know that we must act. Having the wisdom to know when to act a when not to act and to be in control of our own passions and emotions is at the top of the list of spiritual accomplishments.
