The more we strive and seek to make life ‘easier’ the less life has a value or worth. We fight and struggle to avoid problems or challenges that in itself brings negativity and all the challenges of the mind. Easy is another way of avoiding life, of not showing up and then struggling with all the angst of the fears of failure, of not being worthy.
Let life be, the challenges are there for us to experience and to learn from and to grow. The struggle and sacrifice bring us long-lasting peace and joy, a chance to be in the moment and to let things be, surrending to what comes our way and removing the fight. Simply living, a thing that people rarely do anymore, as they are too busy in their minds worrying about how to make things better when life is already amazing right now.
The purpose of life is to be, to live, not to seek constantly something other than what we already have in the hope that life will be better and easier.
We always seem able to find someone to blame, someone to judge, something to hate, something or someone to be angry about, we seem able to criticise, to manipulate, to seek attention from others, to take, to look for the worst, to seek revenge, to be mad about…to fight all and everything, after all we all hate ‘injustices’. But these are not real injustices, they are the injustices that the inner victim in all of us create and we then take it out on the world.
Perhaps, we could just be and be content with what we are, where we are, what we have and our current situation in life. Then we will find love, joy, kindness, gratitude, and meaning.
The moment we accept others truly for who they are, that means everything, not just some bits, and accept things we can not control for what they are, as in the world and other people and what they do and say. Then we are able to stop resisting everything and we are able to dissolve hate, judgement, anger, jealousy, meanness, criticism, revenge and all the negative things that our mind’s resistance creates. We no longer give it the attention and power it needs to keep going, the fighting creates the negativity.
Stop fighting things and be content…our individual world will change instantly.
