False comfort

When you resist something, you empower it to stay in your life.

“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck..”
~Dalai Lama~

The ego is conditioned to resist change. It desires to maintain the illusion of control and prevents us from living mindfully in the Now. In moments of resistance, we often retreat into the false comfort of thought. We imagine how things should be and seek to find ways to bend an ever-changing world experience to our will.
When you fight against something, you give your power to it. If you wish to transform a situation, change how you perceive it. Seek the gift within the challenge. Express gratitude for the opportunity to learn something new, to heal an old wound or expand your thinking. Once the situation has served its purpose, it will leave your life.
Know that you are loved and supported each and every step of the way. All that is required is to take one more conscious step, experience one more sensation, observe one more thought and express love one more time. When you tend to your state of consciousness in the present moment, the future will take care of itself.
Today my intention is to remember that every moment presents a wonderful new opportunity to become more of who I am.
