The higher your state of consciousness, the simpler things become.
“Awakening is about liberating yourself from the prison that is the world of the mind and daring to be here as all that you are.”
As you move to the higher states of consciousness such as Willingness, Acceptance, Love or Peace, you’ll discover that old ways of being cannot make that journey. For instance, acceptance and anger cannot coexist in the same space; therefore, anger naturally ceases to be a primary focus and eventually it drops away. The freedom, the lightness of being allows you to walk through the doorway to a new expression of who you are.
The mind would have you believe that awakening is difficult, change is hard and that these old resentments are something that you are stuck with. Ask yourself, “Who would I be without this thought or behavior?” Often, a trickle of paradoxical unease rises as you may answer, “I’d be happy/contented/at peace.” The ego fears the unknown, even when the unknown is a healthy and joyful existence. After all, what would it do or who would you be without something to fight against?
When we drop the need to have struggle in our experience, life becomes easier. We discover that miracles abound and love is available as we begin to experience life from the higher new perspective. Even better, there is always a new level to explore.
Today my intention is to open my eyes, my heart and my mind.
