Periodically take time to examine your responses to life. Chances are that you handle challenges quite differently today than you did five years ago.
“I now choose to recognize the magnificence of my being.”
Spiritual awakening is not like flicking on a light switch. It is the slow continual process of self-observation, addressing each challenge and trigger as it arises while practicing new ways to bring the best version of yourself to each situation that arises.
Over time we explore uncharted facets of ourselves and cultivate the qualities that bring peace into our lives. One by one, we drop the limiting patterns and beliefs that cause frustration. Give yourself credit for how far you have come. When you miss the mark, forgive yourself for being human. Awakening is not about expectations of perfection or “Buddah-hood.” It is the slow, transformative process of freedom.
Acceptance is the key. Accept yourself as you are, accept others as they are and accept the situation as it is. From there, you can bring greater clarity to your choices and responses to life.
Today my intention is to remember that every experience I have leads me to a greater understanding of my purpose on Earth.
