A thought for Sunday

You can’t have cold if there is no hot, tall without short, happiness without unhappiness, light without dark…one thing has to exist in order to know the other.

Everything has its opposite and without it, it wouldn’t exist.

If we only had ‘good’ things they wouldn’t exist as good. That’s why in reality, all things have to be in balance and neither or good nor bad.

However, life has to have challenges in order for us to learn and grow, in order to want to seek new experiences and to become an even better version of ourselves.

We are not here as a ball of energy and light to stay stuck in our minds, thinking, suffering, judging, hating, fearing…we are here for now, to experience light and dark as a human soul.

The universe gives us everything we need and in order to see it we have to stop looking and to just be. Fear creates resistance and blocks our ability to see.

Don’t fear bad things, welcome them as a new experience and know that good things will come as a balance too. None of these things matter, they will come and go as everyone and thing are temporary.

But If we fear them we will never actually experience real life now, we just spend a suffering ‘existence’ within our own mind.

Let go of the mind and its self-created fear and let our love from our soul shine for us and others.

Experience life whatever shape it comes in rather than be unconscious in fear. We don’t have a life, we are life right now.

Be your own happiness

When we search outside ourselves for someone or something to fulfil us, to bring us happiness, to fix us, to…whatever, it never brings us anything other than disappointment.

We place an expectation on things, events, other people and so on, however, it always fails as things, people etc will always fall short of our expectation.

Suffering is the difference between expectation and what actually is.

With other people, this expectation creates a burden on them, and this causes them suffering too.

Expect nothing of the exterior world and seek all that you want of it within you. We are here to create our own happiness and when we focus on that, all our energies shift and we are free from disappointment and expectation, it frees others too.

Be your own happiness.
