Ever so often life presents us with challenges and lessons to be learned. We can meet that challenge, or we can let our instinct take over and pretend it's not happening. We can not flee from our challenges forever. There are certain roadblocks and certain thresholds that will guide us into the next phase of our life. We can avoid them, resist them, or flee from them. None of this will really work. We have to give ourselves the time to sit with our challenges. To be with them, to not hold back.
Can we allow to be with ourselves amidst the difficulty or inner conflict, struggle and pain...? When we do that things open up, the dynamism of life can unravel it's next step.
Living in today's world valuing the quiet, the mindful, the simple is a challenge. The sacredness of life easily gets forgotten, and we get disconnected from the essential.
Moments of being mindful, of settling within, of resting and letting ourselves feel what is really going on are important, because without them we miss out on the many facets of who we truly are.
Spaciousness is resting within, is not fixing, wanting something different, meddling with your experience.
