Happy Monday, bright souls!
This is hands down one of my favorite philosophies. I have a tendency, as I think we all do, to get caught up in trying to make life fall into place perfectly. I can get distracted in believing that once things fall into place, then I will find peace. “Then I can finally relax and rest,” I subconsciously tell myself. The truth of the matter is that life is a revolving door of occurances and experiences–some challenging and some easy-peasy. The door will never stop swinging….there will always be some lesson to attend to…because this is how we grow. There is no distant shore where life stops and we are finally afforded the opportunity to relax. Rather we choose to shift to a mindset where we nurture as much calm + acceptance with the present moment and learn that it is in this shift where the real liberation is found.
I work on this everyday.
Ego says, “Once everything falls into place, I will find peace.”
Spirit says: “Find peace and everything will fall into place.” Tweet this!
