Spiritual awakening is nothing more than emerging from the dream of thought into the power of the present moment. We don’t achieve happiness by rearranging the circumstances of life but by the willingness with which we approach it. Many people are trapped by desire or fear. This is what happens when we forget that the mind is a tool (and sometimes a teacher) and allow it to run our lives.
Do you know someone who seems to create excessive drama in their own experience and the lives of those around them? They are trapped by the mechanisms of the mind and haven’t yet reached a point where they can awaken. These beautiful souls mirror to us the struggle that we all have from time to time and they simply do not know any better. Approach these circumstances with compassion and healthy boundaries. In this manner, you will retain your own balance and subtly teach by example. After all, every one of us knows what it is to be afraid. There is nothing more glorious than the shift into awareness – and we know that this gift awaits everyone when they are ready to receive it.
The moment we realize that life is not as serious as the mind makes it out to be, we discover more and more opportunities to play. Celebrate the joy of being alive as you emerge into the light of your own being. Be ready for something new to flow into your experience and allow the burdens of your heart to disappear. You are a master in the process of awakening…
Today my intention is to remember that the world is my reflection. I am willing to see clearly and love unconditionally.
