The easy path leads nowhere. But it’s easy, avoids risk, satisfies the mind and is comfortable. Well, comfortable is actually uncomfortable very soon.
The more challenging route leads us to anywhere we are prepared to make the sacrifice to get to.
We’re here to experience not to be comfortable. That requires us to take a step away from the mind and comfort.
Experiences are everywhere and in order to see them, we have to stop seeking comfort and easy.
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.
