Lately, I keep thinking of the Spanish word aprovechar, which means to make good use of something. When I have difficulty with a particular class or project, I can view it as an opportunity to use whatever is there to the best of my ability, not trying to push beyond. I will make good use of whatever resources I have at my disposal, and those natural resources will be enough. In Secrets of the Talking Jaguar, Martin Prechtel distinguishes between courageous willingness and willfulness. When we are courageously willing, he says, we work by means of our natural souls with whatever is there. And when we do that, we are a “good gift” for Spirit.
