IT’S AS IT IS

What seems to be permanent, isn’t.

Apart from this eternal present moment now, all things, events, people, whatever, are temporary. Nothing lasts. It might be there for just a second, a few minutes, a week, a year, several years but it will go.

When we are in a good place, it changes, and when we are in a bad space, it goes. Everything has to have the opposite in order for it to exist.

There always has to be balance in the universe and we can observe this every day in nature and the environment. So is the same for all human life and activity.

Everything passes and that’s why nothing really matters except to be present in this moment and be conscious and aware.

The Yin and Yang of life will always be and that’s why it’s best to just be and accept all that is as it is.

Let go or it might snap

If we keep going in life, driven by the mind and our fear of what others may think, driven by our conditioning to be perfect, not being aware of the need to take break, then the body will eventually stop us.

We become physically sick when we are not being aware, when we are stuck in our thoughts, fears, worries, anxieties, resisting and fighting. Keeping up appearances and saying ‘I’m OK’ when really all we want to do is stop and curl up.

Sadly society has conditioned us to always be ‘great!!!’ and to keep going for fear of being seen as not able to cope or not good enough.

We are always enough, whatever, there are no conditions or qualifiers to it. We are born worthy and we die worthy no matter what.

When we allow the mind to control us and keep going ignoring the signs that we need to step away and to be at peace, then we become ill, the body will put the brakes on for us.

Resistance is one the biggest causes of our suffering mentally and physically. After all, we are here once for a short time and nothing really matters. Yet we suffer from resisting what is, what has already occurred and not accepting ourselves and others for what we are.

Let go, just be, take a break and be kind to ourselves…nothing is so ‘life or death’ important that we can’t wait to do it another day. Just go and sit in a park, go for walk, meditate, or whatever else gives us a chance to just breathe, be away from our mind and at peace.

Let go or what we cling onto could snap.
