Have you ever been through a time where things were so challenging that each little hope felt like you were being thrown a bone and you grabbed on to it for dear life. Then it might have slipped away or some other rug slipped away and you went from relief to remorse to morose.
I read this wonderful quote by Yogi Bhajan today. “Learning is not difficult living is difficult. Discipline yourself and see how fast you learn.” Please send this to those stuck in unlearning, those who keep redoing variations on the same theme of mishaps, mistakes, mismanagement, missed steps. Read it to yourself. Remember it. Such simple wisdom as wisdom is. We complicate things.
Can we get relief in situations of undue stress? Yes look at it with curious eyes? See it from a different way of viewing the world get inside someone else’s skin. Pick someone you love their demeanor, their views of life and crawl inside their skin and get an overview of our life from their perspective.
We get stuck on the way things should be and really why should them be that way? What about total acceptance of the way they are. Then let the way get bigger. When we are in stressful situations we usually get smaller and tighter get bigger and brighter and see where that gets you. Getting to the same place each time is really boring. Learn a new way to see because you practice choosing a new way to see. Let life be less difficult. Maybe situations are but you do not have to be.
Real relief comes from when you feel the Ahh no matter what. Look at your life with no comparison, no seeking comfort, no comparison. Allow the relief to come in unexpected way allow the relief to be encoded inside of each situation because you feel the Kiss of the Divine in each situation. It was made just for you a Divine garment for you to learn how to slip into it out of it and be with it to get the code.
Real relief comes when you accept the gift. For it is the entire gift. We can line up our sad stories, our joys, our devastations, our triumphs and they are the ups and downs of life. When you have had enough of that and you want the clear calm center you will embrace meditation, your will embrace calling Gods name just for the fun of it, just because you can call out in longing to belong, you will create a practice that will uplift you. Wahe Wahe Wahe Guru. Ecstasy is for and with you.
