Everything works toward your highest good.
“I feel safe in the rhythm and flow of ever-changing life.”
Life will provide whatever experience is most needed for the evolution of your consciousness. Whatever appears in your life is happening for you, not to you. So if you find yourself wondering “Why me?” see if you can move into acceptance as quickly as possible asking instead, “What am I trying to see here?”
We do not need to spend a lot of effort rearranging the circumstances of life to meet a certain pre-conceived expectation. Once you realize who you are at the deepest level, peace is discovered… and then everything flows much more smoothly.
“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life – and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you. Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
I can think of nothing more beautiful than taking a risk. When we step out of our comfort zone, it creates a space in which something new can occur. The ego will often arise with the fear, the what-ifs, or reasons for procrastination; however, shining the light of consciousness upon the stories of the mind will lessen their hold upon you. Ego is nothing more than old, conditioned thought patterns. Awareness and ego cannot co-exist in the same space.
Allow yourself an hour to be fully present today. Notice when the mind creates a story of resistance or pain, notice whose energy lifts you up or how you feel in different rooms of your home, take a moment to hug a tree and feel the grounding energy of mother earth. This attention to your state of consciousness is a powerful tool than will begin to set you free.
Today my intention is to embrace the present moment without expectation. With each breath, I choose to accept whatever life offers.
