Have you locked in on a particular object that you “must have”? Do you feel your life is incomplete if you do not meet the income level of your dreams or own the shiny new car?
Take a moment to look around you without judgment. Bring your awareness to your heart.
In this moment, even though you may not have “made it” in comparison with your neighbors, family, and friends, when you quiet your ever busy mind and churning thoughts and take time to make friends with your true self and listen deeply to the longings of your heart, you will know that in this moment you are safe, you are whole, you are complete.
You knew this as a child, you can know it again!
You are safe, whole and complete with or without the higher income, the rare collectible object, the advanced degree, the life partner, the new house, the labor saving devices, the newest phone, the designer clothes and shoes, the high end jewelry, …(the list is endless, isn’t it?)
Slow down and get to know who you really are beyond all the things, all the education, the money, beyond the striving, planning and wanting.
You will strike spiritual gold when you get to know your true heart and genuine self.
Beneath all the noise and cacophony of headlines, arguing pundits competing and posturing for ratings with the ugliest most outrageous or inflammatory stories;
Beneath the constant traffic noise, the heavy vibrations of earth movers, the rushing sirens, jet engines with their off the charts decibel levels;
Beneath the rushing to work or appointments, the constant push to be somewhere else, then somewhere else again;
Beneath all this constant hum and ceaseless activity and useless arguing and controversy lies the inner peace, the serenity of your spirit.
It is the one unchanging constant in your life, from cradle to grave and beyond; the foundation of your existence, the ground of your being.
When the rushing and worrying become too much, when stress overwhelms you, come back home to your heart and body and your resilient spirit.
Park your car. Turn off the news. Turn off the constant hum and irrelevance of the TV. Tune into the quiet and calm at your center.
Let your breathing slow and deepen, let your awareness come to your heart. Know that you are so much more than the outward trappings of life – the worry and fear, the job, the news, your political party, your race or religion, your schedule, your to-do list…
You are an expansive and indestructible spirit living in a body with peace at your center. Know this and come back home to your true self.
Are you ready to come out of the shadows, take a chance, and stand in your light?
