”Don’t fight life – live it.”
Life is continuously changing; it’s a series of natural and spontaneous changes. If you’re looking for permanent peace and happiness learn to be comfortable with everything that’s unfolding; circumstances taking place, feelings and emotions running through your body, people dancing in and out of your life. It’s the nature of life. It’s the nature of your being.
The more I think about it; enjoying every aspect of life, and all that it’s presenting us with, is the only rational thing to do. Or as Michael A. Singer puts it:
”You’re sitting on a planet spinning around in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Go ahead, take a look at reality. You’re are floating in empty space in a universe that goes on forever. If you have to be here, at least be happy and enjoy the experience. You’re going to die anyway. Things are going to happen anyway. Why shouldn’t you be happy? You gain nothing by being bothered by life’s events. It doesn’t change the world; you just suffer. There’s always going to be something that can bother you, if you let it.” (Michael A. Singer, the untethered soul)
Learning to let go of past experiences, situations, limiting beliefs and toxic emotions is a process, and sometimes it takes a great deal of patience to get rid of stuff that you know, deep down inside, doesn’t serve you. However, there are a couple of mindsets that can make the process flow more effortlessly; making room for positivity and joy to flow into your life.
Allow things to unfold
”I embrace life.”
Everything in life happens for a reason; whether the reason is for you to learn more about yourself, find your true nature or grow as a human being. You have to learn to accept and embrace all aspects of life; the good and the bad. Stop defining yourself in relationship to the events that happen in the moment, to the struggles, to the mental chatter going on in your mind. You’re not your thoughts, you’re simply being aware of your thoughts. You’re not your emotions; you experience and feel your emotions. You’re not the events happening in your life; you experience these events, and how you choose to do that is up to you.
Relax & release
”I let go of the situation that no longer serves me.”
The more you learn to let go of the past, and the less you worry about the future, the more mindful and relaxed you become. Try not to over-think, over-analyze or obsess about things you can’t control. Take in the moment, always strive to do your best – the future is being created in the moment.
Allow yourself to not always be on top of things – flow with it. Don’t resist feelings of pain, sadness, shame, failure – feelings of not being good enough. However, don’t inhabit this kind of negativity; be the observer, relax and make a conscious decision to release that which no longer serves you. Don’t let these emotions control you – you have the power.
The decision lies within
”I am fearless. I follow my heart.”
It’s up to you to decide if you want to be happy or not. Make that choice, and your path through life becomes clear. How beautiful isn’t it that you have the power and ability to create the life you desire; the power lies within you. Don’t settle for average when you can experience the extraordinary.
Take action, it’s your life. It’s your decision. Fall in love with the process of creating your life.
Gratitude is the attitude
”Love, abundance and happiness flow to me.”
A grateful mind is a loving mind. Always choose the grateful mind; a mind that will take you places beyond your wildest dreams. It’s easy to forget about all the beautiful things in our lives when we’re caught up in the midst of it all. Take time, every day, to stop for a while. Just stop.
… and look around. There’s beauty everywhere if you only took the time to look around and breathe it all in. Show appreciation. Show love and kindness,
and love and kindness will flow right back at you.
