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.

Dark brings light

If we accept that life always will have dark times, then the inner surrender to what is, and to that, will enable us to be at peace, to be free from resistance and our inner light can shine for us.

The universe will work with us once we accept what is and are at peace with it. Whatever occurs in life, when we realise it has occurred, it is instantly the past, it no longer exists except for in our mind. Therefore, when we let go of the emotions and reactions surrounding what has happened we are instantly at peace. We have chosen to say it does not matter.

That does not mean we are happy about everything whatever, it just means below the turbulence on the surface of life, is always inner calm and stillness. From the challenges in life we expand in their experience and they bring us riches.

We are able to see our patterns of reaction, emotion and thoughts more clearly the darker the situations that occur.

The level of resistance brings the corresponding level of emotion, thought and reaction. Letting go dissolves this all.

It’s the dark things that bring us the light.

The darker they are the stronger the light comes.
