No epic accomplishment or radical new experience for my first today. Of course, each & every day is a new experience, if we so allow. I love the quote by Heraclitus: No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man. Or woman, of course.
This is the beauty of journeying in an awakened state. Once you have chosen the path of awakening, it’s an ongoing process. It’s a delicious adventure into the higher realms of your awareness and your being as you evolve into who you were created to be. Sometimes it’s a big bang. Other times it feels more like erosion. Either way, you’re making progress and the key is to be present to now, release what needs to be released, receive what is there to receive and allow all to unfold.
It’s not for the faint of heart. Too many stop short of recognizing their greatness because they stopped reaching before they got to the gold. The process of transformation is not always an easy one. There are some parts that are smooth and, the more you commit to the process, the easier it does become. And, it’s not always that the journey is less arduous – it’s more that you’re in a different perspective. You see everything as opportunity and are not intimidated by the challenges that previously would have seemed daunting.
The paradox is that the process is more about un-learning. When I experienced one of my earlier awakenings, I realized that I needed to become willing to release everything I had ever thought, felt, known or believed. It didn’t mean I actually had to let it go – I was just willing. The process itself will show you that which you retain and that which is optimal to allow to slip out of your awareness. It’s akin to when you choose the path of fitness. When you truly commit to it, you align yourself with the energy, people and resources of that world. What serves & supports you becomes readily apparent to you and that which does not will cease to exist in your reality. Which greatly simplifies the process. There will be some things which will take some focus and efforts to identify & resolve, possibly even layers of it, yet they all can be dealt with and disempowered so they no longer impede you from living the full on life that you desire and deserve.
Loving the journey.
