Impatience is an indicator that we do not trust the process of our awakening. The ego wants events to unfold differently 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.
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 awareness 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 for better relationships, more abundance, balanced health… and we utilize these physical indicators to measure how our spiritual walk is progressing. However, realizing that you are already complete frees you from becoming lost within the illusion.
There is no way to achieve wisdom except to remove the obstacles that block your perception. This cannot be taught by others but must arise from within. This is self-realization. Allow the sense of wonder to take you on a journey of discovery. Peaceful presence can become the foundation of your life.
“To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.”
Let your life be the living flame of awareness. Layer by layer the veils of illusion are burned away and we open to receive the gifts which are available. It may be hard to imagine the beauty that awaits, but truly that is the one and only reason for your sojourn in space and time – discovery. There is nothing specific that you need to do, only drop that which blocks your vision.
The paradox of the world is to live in it while bringing greater awareness to all that you do. Choose just an hour today and approach every task fully present – no multitasking, slow and conscious, grateful and alert. This will teach you how to become the observer and see the sacred which resides within every moment.
Your inner guidance speaks in whispers – the more you trust it, the stronger it becomes and the more attuned you are to the wisdom which emanates from the very core of your being. The way to know that you’re on the right path is that you will feel more whole, peaceful, balanced and integrated, even in the midst of a challenge.
“…something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at just the point where our knees hit the floor.”
