Trees fighting the wind

Resilience is often thought of as about being strong and fighting against the odds, about being tough!

If we look to nature, the most resilient things are those that are flexible and do not fight the elements.

Bending to the wind rather than fighting it ensures the tree’s survival.

Resilience is accepting what is, not fighting what is and allowing ourselves to flexible. Stepping away from the mind and being present, taking the action to the situation free from the ego and its image of being tough, strong, resilient…or not.

So when the going is ‘tough’ we accept that, rather than denying it and stressing ourselves with wanting a different outcome to what has already occurred…futile. Also, the moment we resist mentally ‘what is’ it is the same as a tree that fights the wind, it breaks.

Bend with the wind, accept it is windy, and then spring back.

Madly in love with now

When we truly accept this present moment for what it is without any resistance, when we do not seek to deny it and wish for different, when we stay away from the psychological fear that is always our mind’s projection into the future, only then can we enjoy true inner peace. When we fully surrender, then peace comes.

All that is real and true is contained in this moment, it is the only moment that anything can exist and it’s the only moment we can experience or do anything.

Fall madly and completely in love with this moment…it is our true essence and our real conscious life.

Now will unfold forever.
