How much of your day is spent pushing and pulling, planning and choosing as
you try to muscle a certain outcome into place? A lot more than is
necessary. And wouldn’t it be a relief if you could just let go and trust
in whatever shows up.
The Universe is fluid. It is ever changing. The all-encompassing energy is
like a shape-shifter, in one form one minute, in another form the next.
There is a rhythm, there is an ebb and flow, and there is a natural
evolution. But how do we get to “vote” on the outcome of our life?
We make changes in our life through our consciousness.
Wise Friend is better at that than I am. She totally knows and experiences
the shifts in her life in relation to her thoughts, her consciousness. She
is content to let the Law of Attraction work and bring to her the perfect
clients and the perfect opportunities she needs. I, on the other hand,
continue to paddle even when I’m flowing in the right direction.
“The way is not difficult; only there must be no wanting or not wanting.”—
I’m not certain I can manage no wanting and not wanting. Yet I can see the
serenity it would bring me. What if I simply savored every moment rather
than planning the next? What if I looked at each moment as a gift, all
wrapped up in whatever I am to experience next? What if I spent more time
in meditation, more time in contemplation, more time being?
A Chinese Proverb says, “When the root is deep, there is no reason to fear
the wind.” How deep is the root of my spirituality? How firmly do I believe
in my wholeness, the perfection of what shows up in my life, the blessings
of a challenging opportunity, and the lessons of a loss or seeming defeat?
Do I embrace the belief that my thoughts create my reality and that change
comes without when I change within?
It’s so simple really. Thich Nhat Hanh tells us how”
Be yourself. Life is precious as it is. All the elements for your happiness
are already here.
There is no need to run, strive, search, or struggle. Just Be.
