Tripping on the Step to your Destination
Transcend dualities, release mental constraints, and release conditions based on remaining small or safe. When I face what is challenging in the present moment, often times I’ve wanted to run to another place, country, or fantasized life. Who am I running from? I’ve run from myself, only delaying my souls evolution. When the mind says, “I don’t want to be here.” Where is the mind referring? I may think it is in a physical place, when really it is what I’m facing that challenges me in the moment that I’m trying to escape. My mind is convinced that there’s something “better” awaiting me. How can one compare what is better or greater? Truly that is all a matter of perspective.
When I get caught within the mind, it continues to form my reality based on my reoccurring thought-forms. How can the mind move beyond its limited beliefs if I don’t challenge it to expand and grow? There is no need to keep riding the pendulum of duality, swinging from one extreme to the next. Have I no faith in simply embracing the moment? Trust in the unknown. Be here now. There are infinite possibilities and resources ready and available to be accessed. There is so much love, beauty, and joy in the world just waiting to be experienced! It’s all here, I just need to remember to open my arms, open my heart, and surrender to the divine, my true inner bliss!
Since I’ve been writing this, sitting outside Java Kai in Kauai, I’ve been witnessing something quite humorous. I’ve seen 3 different people trip on a step on their way into the coffee shop. They have been so busy looking straight ahead of them at their destination that they forgot about the step that leads them there! They fumbled and nearly fell on what was right in front of them, guiding them with graceful ease to where they wanted to go. All they needed to do was expand their vision and see the step that was always there, waiting to take them to their destination.
