The sparkle shines from all of us if we let it be there. The real you and I is there.
When we resist ourselves, when we hold back the urge, when we override the instinct, when we allow the mind to inhibit us, then we struggle. The internal conflict of the mind comes and never goes until we allow ourselves to shine. We allow it to suppress us.
When people talk about finding themselves, we are never lost, we are there always, it is just the mind throws a blanket over the real spirit, soul and essence that is our true being.
The mind inhibits our conscious life and it is our choice to allow it or not.
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.
