Life changes when we have this one important realization. Every struggle we face in life, including those with other people, begins with thinking the problem is with them or lies somewhere out in the world. Changing our perception and realizing that the problem resides within, takes us out of resistance and struggle. Changing the inner world first is ALWAYS the best option for the highest outcome for all involved. This allows the creative energy of the universe to flow smoothly again and a greater sense of peace arrives.
Moreover, when we look out into the world, it is much easier to see all the problems around us. This is because the mind loves problems and the ego always assumes that they come from somewhere else. The mind thrives on solving problems and if there aren’t any, it will create them, just so it has something to do. If you don’t believe me, then try going an hour without seeing a problem, seeing that something needs to be done, fixed or resolved. Make this challenge even more interesting by not making judgments. Are you too busy or can you commit to one hour to live a more fulfilling life. If that seems like too much, then try ten minutes. What have you go to lose?
During this hour only focus on the beauty around you, live in gratitude for what you have and for being alive. See if you can go the whole time without slipping back into thinking about your problems or what needs to be done. Yes, but I do not have time for that, I have to…
If you cannot find a way to do this, then how can you expect to enjoy life? How can you expect life to meet you fully wherever you are right now, if you are always trying to control or fix life? There is a time to create and do things. However, you will find one day that even more important than all those things is finding a way to just BE with life. To see and feel what is right in front of you. The miraculous, beautiful and magnificent world we live in and all that comes with it.
