We have no idea what is going to happen, and the good news is that all we have is this moment and in this moment lies eternity. Liberating and terrifying all at once, yeah?
How many times have I made plans and had them completely rearranged by a series of events that may have seemed unfortunate or disappointing, only to find that what actually transpired was greater than I could have ever imagined?
Trusting. Letting go.
Sometimes it is best to take action and sometimes it necessary to sit silent.
Letting go so that we can make room for what will come. At first this sounds so counter-intuitive. Naturally, we want to control what happens. We are inclined to plan and arrange our lives the best we see fit so that we will attain happiness.
We think we know what will bring us joy, but if we are in a mindset of thinking about what will bring us joy… Will we ever truly experience the joy?
I’ve done a lot of seeking through spiritual practices, yoga, multiple paths of meditation, all types of therapy, books, movies, gurus, mentors… This is all beautiful, but the most profound thing that I’ve learned about seeking is that it’s just slowly leading me back to me. Back to home.
I thought it was out there, but I’m learning it’s in here.
Each time I’ve let myself get attached to a spiritual path, a situation happens that brings me back to me and it’s usually a highly uncomfortable lesson.
Divinity lies within.
Within our friends, family and so called enemies.
Within all of creation.
I will likely spend my whole life being given opportunities to learn this because I believe it is what the human experience is for.. To come closer and closer to honoring the holiness in ourselves and each other.
Most of us live in an illusion of separation that causes much more pain than necessary. Yet, this pain is our teacher, guiding us back to ourselves, again and again and again… If we choose for it to.
When we are here and now with ourselves, the love we have to give is infinite. We merge with the Christ Consciousness and fall into acceptance of what is. Acceptance becomes a catalyst for transformation within and around. This is not a passive love, it’s a well of love that overflows with great passion, dissolving any fear that may be present. We connect with each other on a deeply powerful level, recognizing ourselves in one another.
To truly see another’s soul, is to see our own.
You are blessed and you are a blessing.
