The greater the challenge

Accepting what is, is easy when, say it’s a bit of rain or you’ve lost a pen, however, much more challenging when it’s the loss of a loved one or a serious illness or whatever that is seen as serious.

Yet the most challenging situations bring us the most suffering if we do not accept what is.

Whatever happens in our life situations, in this moment, it has already happened and we can not alter it. All we can choose is not to suffer, to be at peace with everything that is.

The greater the challenge, the greater our growth is.

Let’s get serious

Well, not really.

Seriousness is a waste of energy and is derived from the mind and its attempts to protect its self-image, the ego. We have to be seen to fit in and be ‘grown-up’, we can not allow ourselves to be exposed, vulnerable or seen as foolish by others.

Laugh, let go, accept, be at peace, see the funny side of things and be able to see the good in everything. It is part of living in the moment and enjoying life, which is a choice we can all make.
