Living in Paradox

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.”
~Pema Chödrön~

Don’t try to change, simply be aware… awareness heals. Spiritual practice is often a blend of paradox – confusion and clarity, separation and wholeness, detachment and presence. The word paradox itself comes from the Greek para dokien which means beyond thought. See yourself as a physical expression of the Divine who wishes to experience life in all its forms. Teach yourself to look through the illusion and act consciously within the present moment. Eventually the illusion will become easier to see through as we remember our purpose: Oneness and Wholeness.

So many suffer, lost within the “why’s” and entrapped by the mind. The same energy, knowledge and peace discovered by all the masters who have walked the Path of Transformation awaits you within the openness of your own heart. For all your searching, ultimately the answers lie within.

It can take great courage to learn to trust your inner wisdom. Teachers and circumstances consistently point us inward, but until one is willing to see, there it waits. Trust, be gentle with yourself and open to the potential that joy brings. No matter what teachings you encounter, be led by your inner wisdom. Give yourself permission to live consciously within the paradox, without dissecting or analyzing it.
