Trust the processes of your awakening.
“Resistance is a conditioned response of the ego; it’s the ego’s effort to maintain control, the ego’s fear of giving up the known. Often our resistance prevents us from staying in the present moment for more than a few seconds. We resist because we want to avoid feeling the underlying jangle of our actual experience. We move away from discomfort, into the false comfort of our thoughts. But no matter what form it takes, resistance brings no peace; we strengthen whatever we want to resist. By resisting something we solidify it, empowering it to stay in our life.”
It’s helpful to cultivate your ability to be at ease with the unknown. Keep your experiences simple and allow room for the Universe to surprise you. When we cling to ideas of things ought to be, we deny what is.
Viewing this moment as the moment of your transformation changes how you experience it. Awakening is not something that may happen at some point in the future, it is happening now and it is all around you.
The only thing over which we have any control is how we choose to respond to life. Each situation allows us to practice responding with an open heart. Pay attention to how quickly you are able to move into acceptance in a given situation. Do you notice how that energy transforms the experience?
Today my intention is to experience a deeper connection with life by taking a step into unknown territory.
