Flow with the current

”Don’t fight the moment – embrace it.” Life is 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, as well as people dancing in and out of your life. Change is the nature of life. It’s the nature of your being. The only rational thing to do is to embrace every aspect of life – the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, the love and the fear – whatever it may present us with, diving right in, trying our best in line with the moment we’re in. 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.

It’s about shifting your focus, shifting your perspectives. It’s about being able to turn a negative day into a great day, simply because you choose to.  Nevertheless, it’s not enough to simply think, write or speak about the things you want in life, however, it’s a vital start. You have to believe, in order to receive. If you don’t believe in yourself and all that you’re capable of, nothing much will grow out of it. What is more you’ll have to begin to take inspired action. It’s not enough to simply sit on the coach, listening to inspirational podcasts or visualizing dreams and goals coming through – we actually need to take that first step as well, not knowing where it will take us. ”Bring your thoughts …
