Life is about success and struggles, courage and cowardice, calm and challenges, strength and weaknesses etcetera.
If you take a long hard look at life: the legacies of your predecessors, the unfolding patterns of your life as well as the innumerable possibilities yet to be actualized (in your mind), you will admit that everything comes in a batch of twos.
Whenever it looks like you are no longer struggling, challenged or weak, it might be that you are overcrowded by company that is far less in development than the rest of the world, let alone yourself. You know, like a one-eyed man leading a company of blind but “intelligent” people.
However settled you have become and indeed successful, you will always find people with higher moral standards, stronger testimonials, keener insights, sharper consciousness and bolder results. It is in the shadow of these people that you will resume your struggles and challenges. And that becomes the run-off for your imminent rise in awareness in order to outgrow your current achievements.
Hence, in the context of your physical existence, the ever-increasing availability of mortals with higher achievements spiritually, personally, socially, scientifically, mentally, financially etc is the appropriate opposites for your own current experience; and you should welcome it with strides, for it will only serve to draw out the untapped reserve of your greatness.
