When you understand that suffering is a teacher, it ceases to be something that has to be vanquished. Suffering has no value unless it is conscious suffering. The moment the mind begins to work overtime, thoughts of fear or analysis permeate your ability to experience joy in the Now. The way to cut through this limiting energy is with childlike innocence and a willingness to to purposefully observe whatever has arisen.
As you achieve greater spiritual understanding, you may find it more comfortable to live immersed in the unknown. There’s no need to stubbornly cling to old patterns, knowledge or ways of being. Instead, the freedom of faith is available to you because you know that there is more to life than meets the eye. Blockages merely become pivots that shift us into new directions. As one avenue of experience closes, we become more open to explore new solutions… and always emerge through the other side more courageous, aware and empowered.
Today my intention is to live with spontaneity. Every moment has something to teach me.
