Flowers do not struggle to be flowers and birds don’t struggle to be birds. The only entity that struggles on this planet (except for a trapped animal) is the human being. Somehow, it has even been determined that struggling and suffering is holy and will buy us a place in heaven. If we are putting off our happiness and fulfillment, thinking that struggling will bring us closer to heaven, we are following a mistaken pathway.
Not one great, holy teacher ever said that struggling was a good thing. The laws of the Universe are of unlimited potential and effortless ease. It is the blight of the human, ego-based mind that thinks it needs to struggle to get results. But any action that begins in a lowered state of consciousness will not manifest good things. So people should not struggle at all.
