“Adversity comes when we’re getting something that we don’t want, or we want something that we’re not getting. Either way, life is not going exactly as we’d like it to go – or is it? What if, on a subconscious or a soul level, we set ourselves up to experience some adversity in one form or another? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But when you think about it, it could be that maybe, just maybe, that’s what we’re doing. But why?
The Law of Adversity is the complement to the Law of Agreement, and it offers us many insights about our uncomfortable experiences, The Law of Adversity says that along with every challenge or problem we encounter, an opportunity also presents itself.
It is important for us to be alert and aware so that we can spot these opportunities and turn them into gifts for ourselves. For this to happen, though, it helps if we realize that we made an agreement to be here at this time. We set it all up – all of the chaos, adversity,
resistance, limitation, all of it – so that we could rise above it and reach our highest calling in life.”
Tony Burroughs, in “The Law of Agreement”
