Within life’s shatterings, a wisdom will find and guide us. This wisdom watches and waits without judgement. It knows the Truth of our hearts. When life does not match our heart’s Truth, it starts to crumble away.
Even if we are aware of this process, it will not prevent the pain associated with it. If we attempt to avoid this pain, it only prolongs our suffering.
First the crumble, then the pain and then we meet our Truth.
Most of our pain is attached to our illusion that we are in control of how life unfolds. This can take many forms. It can look like ‘security’ with the way things are and a belief comfortable circumstances will remain the same. It sometimes shows up as imagining a future goal and our desired outcome of this goal will free us from our feelings of inadequacy. The most common and habitual deflection of the fear of life’s constant shifts is placing our anger, guilt, shame and blame on others.
We can stay trapped in this ‘otherness’ for a lifetime.
It is okay if we do. We are human.
However, we can make freedom choices within our human framework that originate in awareness. If we choose to be present as much as we are able, Truth might reach us today instead of tomorrow.
This is the practice. This is life.
This is Everything.
