Challenges come, and they go. Everything passes.
The more we resist that process, the longer things stay a challenge.
When we focus on this moment and this moment only, there can never be a challenge that we can not deal with right now. Therefore, we take action or not and it is dealt with.
If we resist what is, if we do not accept what has already happened, if we put up a mental fight to it, then that denial prolongs whatever it is.
We can not change what has happened and what might happen will never come, now is it.
Allow the past to be that, the past, do not live in the fantasy of the future, it never comes…just be, in the now.
Accepting what is sounds easy, but we are conditioned to want a different outcome to anything we do not like.
Our ego does not want to see or hear anything that doesn’t fit the story or if it feels like we are to blame.
The culture of blaming comes from the individual and collective egos and there wish not to be at fault.
If we can remove our ego from the situation, not look for blame, if we can silence our mind and its negative thoughts, then we can find accepting what has happened, and realising that what is, is always what is. It has already happened and wanting a different moment is, of course, completely futile.
Once we can get to the stage of accepting that everything that has occurred, has occurred, and we can not alter it, then we can focus on now and moving on, letting go and looking at how to deal with the reality of now.
Resisting creates fear that then leads to other emotions, pain and suffering. Inner peace is never achievable all the time we deny this present moment.
Letting go brings peace within and then we react from our true essence to things, from our soul, rather than from the mind, its ego and fears. We avoid becoming our emotions and reactions.
Everything is, as it is always, move on and enjoy now with peace within.
