It’s crazy that most of us believe that life is difficult.
When we make it that way with the thoughts we impress upon it.
There is a belief that life attacks us and we’re constantly in defense mode.
I want to show you what causes life to be difficult, and I’d like to teach you how it can be easy.
Resistance leads to life being difficult
How many times a day do we think “I don’t want to do that.” Or even “I have to do that.”
This causes resistance to our circumstances and we don’t recognize that everything it’s meant for our good.
We think we know best with what happens in life, trying to control and plan for circumstances that may never even happen.
When you can just be in the flow of life it becomes easy.
Stay present in each new moment and deal with any circumstances as your intuition leads you to.
I read in a book today “planning is defending yourself on an attack that you think will happen”.
It’s trying to maintain control by predicting future circumstances and making a plan to circumvent them.
If we truly believe that everything is working out for our benefit then we would never need to plan.
Trust, surrender and accept what is going on this will make life easier for you.
The lies you believe make life difficult.
We are certainly meaning-making machines.
Inflicting judgment, telling stories and being completely right about our beliefs are some of the ways we lie to ourselves.
“The truth never needs support” as Don Miguel Ruiz says.
When we tell ourselves lies we are constantly looking for support of those lies in our circumstances.
We don’t ask questions that would support our growth instead we ask questions that support those lies.
The lies don’t support us, they hurt us and make us feel unworthy.
This may always be a work in progress. Don’t forget to be gentle with yourself.
Telling yourself you should be further along or more successful than you are doesn’t motivate you to allow happiness in your life.
You are learning and growing every day, you are exactly where you are supposed to be on your path.
When we find the truth and begin to let go of the past stories that have clouded our connection to who we really are, your mind can be healed.
Ultimately, this makes you feel good and supports an easier way of living.
Leading from your head creates difficulty in your life
How many times have we gotten caught up in our heads over things in the past or things we predict about the future.
Changes we wish we had made or concerns about how the future will turn out.
We try to be logical and control what’s happening.
The thing is the entire circumstance could change if we got out of our heads and dropped into our hearts.
Leading with love in all circumstances towards all people gives us the ability to have compassion, understanding, and kindness.
You know the difference too. Unfortunately, most of the time, when we are caught up in our heads we don’t feel good.
We feel sad, lonely, disconnected, victimized and many other emotions that aren’t supportive of our true nature.
This also shows us the resistance we invoke and where it comes from.
Our Mind (Ego) believes that we have knowledge and power greater than our creator.
It wants to keep us comfortable, righteous, in control and looking good, however, none of this supports our growth.
This keeps us small and unsatisfied which makes life difficult.
Especially because we are doing what we are created to do which is expand.
Being in your heart space and engaging in action from there will make you have a much more enjoyable life.
Your heart lets you lead from deep down, where we know it will all be ok.
That my friends is the easiest way to live.
Until next week,
Agape ❤ ,
