Enlightenment is taking responsibility for your own experience.
“Expecting an epiphany – some single moment of insight that will forever banish the experience of fear, anger, neediness – may prevent us from noticing the slow and almost imperceptible ways spiritual practice subtly transforms us. With patience and perseverance, our habitual reactive patterns slowly erode, until one day we find ourselves in a situation that had always made us anxious – and we notice the anxiety is simply gone.”
Each of us is a master in the process of awakening. View this planet as a playground that teaches through contrast. Recognize that every moment offers an opportunity to become a little more aware, a little more empowered, a little more free from limitation.
It’s important to be kind to yourself. Some lessons need to present themselves in several different forms before we truly understand the patterns that have silently controlled our lives. As you become more aware of your moments of unconsciousness, it is actually an indicator that your awareness is increasing. Celebrate your humanness! Celebrate your true infinite nature. Delve into the delight of consciousness, for once you explore the mysteries of life with an awakened heart, you will never be the same.
Today my intention is to be responsible for my own joy.
