Each of us is responsible for our own joy.
“Nobody can give you the meaning of your life. It is your life, the meaning has also to be yours. It is your life and it is only accessible to you. Only in living will the mystery be revealed to you.”
Life happens. It ebbs and flows around us – highs and lows, stillness and chaos. How we choose to interpret the events of our lives determines the amount of grace we allow into our experience. Resistance, complaining and judgment are the ego’s way of deflecting personal responsibility.
In order to step into empowerment, we must first observe any reactivity that arises. Our awareness creates the possibility of a break in the habitual patterns and ideas that no longer serve our growth. “That’s the way I’ve always been” is no longer a viable prison that dictates how we respond to life; instead, consciousness expands through purposeful and honest self-reflection.
Your pain is caused by limited perception. When you change your thoughts, the interpretation, response and outcome will change as well. You hold the keys to freedom in your hand. Observe how life responds to you when you experience it with love, compassion and acceptance.
