No matter what happens to you in life, remember this one sweet understanding. You are powerful beyond measure, beautiful beyond words and truly an extraordinary being who has access to unlimited love, creativity and pleasure! All this is available inside you now. To access it, sit with the investigation of this understanding for a few minutes and see what happens! You might discover some resistance, denial or perhaps the realization that this amazing fact is already true within you all the time.
“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” ~Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Know that each block you encounter in life is your greatest catalyst to diving into a deeper experience of your most enlightened self. Every experience we have as human beings contains a doorway to this divine state. All that’s needed is to look for the door, reach out for the golden handle and walk on through. There is nothing as easy and fulfilling as entering the sweet paradise that is within your very being. It’s easiest to discover this warm fuzzy feeling inside when you are alone, in nature, quiet and looking within yourself for many hours. To arrive at this place means letting go of the busy productive hectic to-do list, and spend some quality time with you! Whatever is stopping you from making time for yourself is blocking you from experiencing a tremendous joy.
“Let them throw their curses. If inside, I am connected to what’s true, my soul stays quiet and clear. Do you think God worries what people say? If a few ashes fall on a mirror, use them to polish it.” ~Lalla 14th Century North Indian mystic
My invitation for you is that you emotionally dive into yourself and find this natural high vibrational state of being. Do this for at least 1 hour everyday. You are worth it! And you’ll look back at your day with a huge smile on your face. Start with letting go of any limiting beliefs about yourself. If you think you’re too nice, too old, too fat, too ugly, too poor…these are old boring stories and excuses. In truth they are just electrons passing through the brain that make you think you’re living in some prison. Break free from these beliefs and surrender to loving you! Trust in the feeling of love. It is gentle, kind and works in healing you every time! There is nothing more powerful and transformational than love sweet love.
“There is no beginning or ending in the journeyless journey to nowhere. You do not start from somewhere and you do not end at anywhere. You are where you are and you continue from there.” ~Bodhiharma
We are all on this sacred spiritual journey called life together. It is for our enjoyment, transformation and enlightenment. We are here to enlighten the load from our past, let go of the heaviness that is slowing us down and dive into what is not real. When we can clearly see what is real, then everything changes. There is a sense of great relief inside as we no longer have to fight or resist any part inside. When we acknowledge and accept that which we deem as unacceptable about ourselves, the lightness begins to settle in.
There is nothing you can do to make a wrong turn in life. On an infinite highway where everything is connected, all lanes lead to the same destination. On those days when you feel that you made a wrong turn, ran a red light, or even trashed your vehicle, it may feel like you had one foot on the brake, the other foot on the gas, and you were mainly looking in the rear view mirror. Whatever mistakes you’ve made in life, just observe the judgment of them without participating in that judgment. Just welcome the experience of whatever the “error” was, and accept it as a lesson or deeper teaching from Life.
By welcoming whatever experience is showing up for you, clarity naturally occurs. You can simply decide to see things more clearly when you welcome each experience fully without any story or judgment about it. When you do this, the Universe has to instantly present itself to you with full clarity. Don’t resist any experience that life gives you. Resistance is futile and just makes you contract from life and get all knotted up inside. If you feel you must resist an experience, be conscious about it, and know there is always a relaxing freeing feeling awaiting you when you let go and surrender to what is deeper and already at peace on the inside.
“When you come to the edge of all the light you know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.” ~Unknown poet
