Spirituality can be a painful business, especially when opening doors to deeper parts of yourself. I liken it to getting a tattoo... once that door is open, there is no going back to the ignorance, and thus, choosing a tattoo, it is there for life... no longer able to ignore it.
Knowledge is a wonderful thing. Understanding why we are as we are, and why we turned out the way we did is great. However, for some, reality is hard to cope with, simply because so many coping strategies have been put into place. The sad fact is though, that at some point, we all wake up... and many chose to dull this reality to sleep with drugs, alcohol and other addictions to distract us from the truth.
It can be a bumpy ride at first when we dont understand what is happening. To keep faith and trust in the process takes some work.
The only way really is through it all... yet we can eliminate much stress and anxiety by letting go of residual business of others around us, just focus on ourselves for a while.
We are greatly resourced to do this if we really listen inside. Simple practices of mind, body, soul alignment, adult leading our life and not child self (often wounded child I might add)... ancestors who support us... friends, family, pets, environments the list is endless.
What we have to remember is that the more we push to open a door to our inner world, the more we learn about the workings of our world. Our greater awareness brings us to needing to take responsibility of our choices and actions in life. For most, this is the hard part, as it is so easy to blame others for our misfortunes and bothers. Co-creation is actually the truth. We had some say in it somewhere along the line... even if this makes no sense in the current point of your existence.
Once we are aware of what is happening, we are opening that door to deeper work. To take responsibility is the next step. Then do something about it, work through the elements of it and bring it back to peace... here is the real work in progress.
Most get stuck in the patterns of external blame and diversion away from themselves. They fill up their days with unnecessary things and make no time to see the truth.
The pain of truth is also the salvation we are seeking. Once we get out of the cycle and understand there is a place of freedom that comes from this work, we find an eagerness to continue with it.
It takes guts, determination, action, bravery and SUPPORT to move through it. It can be done. For Everyone. I am living proof of it.
Have a great day.
Namaste & Thank you.
