Impatience is an indicator that we do not trust the process of our awakening. The ego wants events to unfold differently than they are and creates a low level of anxiety, always seeking for the next thing. This is a distraction that prevents us from truly appreciating the present moment and all that it has to offer.
Learn to slow down and cherish what is in front of you, no matter what that may be. Even the most mundane moments are a gift from the Divine and your willingness to seek wholeness can allow you to recognize miracles where none were perceived before.
Too often spiritual seekers develop attachment to outcomes. The process of awakening becomes laced with desire – better relationships, more abundance, balanced health… and we utilize these physical indicators to measure how our spiritual walk is processing. However, realizing that you are already complete frees you from becoming lost within the illusion.
“When illusion is forever vanquished, one attains to spontaneous wisdom.” ~ sutra of Shiva
There is no way to achieve wisdom except to remove the obstacles that block is from your perception. This cannot be taught by others but must arise within you. This is self-realization.
Allow the sense of wonder to take you inward. When you are filled with wonder, you are filled with peace and relaxation and it becomes your way of life.
Today my intention is to live surrounded by mystery. Each moment is an invitation to dance with the Divine.
