Yeah, as many of have come to realize, we know and understand that what we need to Spark ourselves is inside! But we should also know that sometimes that source can become depleted. So the reserve survival tactics need to be kicked into gear! The best survival tactic is to recognize when we are becoming over burdened by stress or by the consequences of poor decisions that start rolling toward or over us to give us a wakeup call to action. The best first response that I know of is a call to the troops to come to our assistance! Pride and self reliance is not always the best recourse. Yes we can wait until we are stuck at the bottom of a pit and hope that someone wanders by who we can discretely get the attention of to help pull us up out of our predicament!
But personally, I think it is better to recognize when we are headed towards trouble that we realize we can't avert on our own and then send out a flare for assistance. Kind of like knowing the ship is going down and shooting out an SOS instead of waiting until the sharks are circling you as you tread water wondering when a boat might happen by that you might be able to call out for help and hope you get their attention
So again that Spark needs to come from within. We must get rid of the self defeating pride and learn to call out sooner than later. That internal Spark can be used to produce and external act of good and healthful actions like a call for help or leaning on friends that are willing to help!
Just like taking a bridge over a huge canyon (to avert our unnecessary struggles and burdens) to get to where we want to go, a call for help can make it easier if it is the better path that we choose!
There is always some one willing to help and point you in the right direction to avert those troubled times and so you don't get lost or stuck in an unneeded situation!
