We all have two lives. The life we are living and the unlived life striving to come alive.
What lies between our two worlds, is our daily practice of yielding to a dysfunctional and crippling force within us, our inner resistance, our irrational fear of living true.
The struggle and inevitable suffering that we feel is largely due to the frequency we acquiesce to our resistance. We give in to or go along with our fears without much awareness let alone protest.
We inadvertently up tick our self-loathing, we bury the best version of ourselves and we abandon the life of our dreams. We innocently move along the continuum of life in misery, believing that this is our lot in life. Although our safe, secure and comfortable life choices may be leading us down the road of unhappiness, blah lifelessness, we can at least rationalize the trade off. Right? Yes of course but at what cost?
The antidote? To accept that resistance is and always will be an essential aspect of of our psyche. It helps us to survive in the face of actual life threatening danger. However, we don’t need to yield to it’s misinterpretations and self-sabotage our intentions. We can learn to manage and transform its energy, to leverage our power to proactively thrive and live true.
Self-empowerment is a daily practice that affirms that we are the sovereigns of our life and to rule well is a disciplined thinking skill. 🦋
Happy Canada Day my friends! I am so grateful and honoured to call myself Canadian! To be able to live in the majestic beauty of this land, with my friends and family, in freedom and peace, surrounded by the richness and diversity that so many cultures gift us with, is a blessing that I cherish everyday. Eh?
When we argue with what is, the facts or the truth about someone’s behaviour, the difficult circumstances we find ourselves in or perhaps the discomforting past, we find ourselves mentally and emotionally struggling, suffering or drowning in a tsunami of relentless pain.
Acceptance of what is, empowers us, it emboldens our courage to open that door in front of us and step into a new world of possibilities. 🦋
