When you are told you cannot join the group, when you are consistently denied, take the high road. While the others are walking the lower road together, they essentially force you to walk the alternative route.
We travel quickest when we travel alone. Do not waste time feeling dejected, rejected, or sorry. Be glad instead, for you have been offered opportunity to increase the length of the journey, and the speed and which you rise.
Travel with love in your heart, and as you look below and you see them on the other path, smile, and thank them as you move swiftly by, and up. Focus not on doing better than … but on the work that must be done, the work that only you can do.
The world depends on you ~ on your stamina, on your unbreakable will, on your strength of character, on the fact that you hold honor for all beings in your heart and soul.
