We opt for the short term ‘easy’ yet it becomes the long term suffering.
We settle into uncomfortable comfort zones.
If we choose to do the ‘hard’ now, the only time we can ever do anything to bring change, then we ease out of our uncomfortable comfort zones into the joy of now, the pleasure of doing and it all becomes ‘easy’
If we want something to be different or change, then we have to do something different.
Seems simple, but so many of us repeat the same things and expect something to change, particularly as our ego looks to others to change as they are the ones causing our misfortune, or perhaps it’s the weather or something else that we can blame or be a victim of.
It all starts with us, we are the only ones that can change anything in our lives and it requires us to do something new. It often requires sacrifice and it will certainly involve commitment to forming new habits.
The simple change can come from letting go of our thoughts and repeating mindstreams and focusing on this moment. Consciousness allows us to become aware and awareness is vital for any change or growth to take place.
