Four little words. They’ve gotten me through a lot of hard times, especially the ignorance of my 20’s.
THIS TOO SHALL PASS!
I wrote this Insight (blog) several weeks ago, before the destructive hurricanes in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, the earthquakes in Mexico and the massive fires in California that have destroyed thousands of homes.
It’s my heart’s intention that today’s article brings peace to you, if you find yourself struggling with the all that’s going on in the world or something personal in your own life.
I still love those four little words…This too shall pass. They help me remember the truth – EVERYTHING IS GOING TO PASS, EVENTUALLY. . .
Let’s face it. The world is going through difficult times. You may be even dealing with your own personal difficulty.
In today’s INSIGHT, I offer a perspective to hopefully ease inner resistance that can cause suffering. You know the saying, “What we resist, persists”!
I didn’t want to write about this topic today.
My self-talk went something like this… “You should write something more uplifting. Something to inspire people!”
My SOUL’s response was…
“What if this is exactly what is needed?”
So, here goes… We’ve all known hard times. No one gets through life without them. Heck, even the richest of the richest can’t stop hurricanes, or sometimes even their own bankruptcy.
Today’s message is really about what to do when nothing works.
Perspectives. Choices. They affect us daily.
Sometimes our perspectives make us feel as though we are on top of the world and like nothing could get us down ever again. Other days? Well, we just can’t seem to get out of bed or do what’s before us.
Your perspective can show you useful past conditioning and help you make the empowering choices. At other times, your conditioned perspectives can be maladaptive and “appear” to take away any chance of choice. But, you can still make a choice.
“What’s this about, and can I get past my reaction?”, we ask ourselves!
Have you ever asked yourself this question?
It could have been wrecked my day. It wasn’t a life or death sort of thing, but if I had believed it, it certainly could have robbed me of my Being-ness, my happiness and of my productivity. And, if I continued it as a habit, it could rob me of my fulfillment and purpose.
Does this ever happen to you?
You’re running behind schedule and you say to yourself, “I don’t have time to meditate right now!”. . .
