My ego mind has felt that my life experience has been very challenging the past few months. The ego mind likes to make everything into a problem. How could this be happening to ME? How have I created this experience? It is almost funny, although it doesn’t feel that way at the time.
These experiences are really a gift that has made me humble. Until this year, I did not fully value being humble, because I did not understand it. It is one of the best feelings I have ever experienced, an open heart filled with compassion.
Through deep meditation, I came to see that my life experiences are not who I am. I am pure being, one with all light and love, as are you. You are not your life experience. If your life experience is not matching your heart’s desire, that is okay, love and forgive yourself. You are not alone. These challenges are healing you. Love and forgive everything and everyone, even situations.
When you separate your being or essence from your life situation, the desire to judge your challenges as bad will lessen. Your greatest gifts come from these challenges- compassion, love and presence.
The experience of being in the mud arises to help you wake up and become aware of your truth. The mud is detoxifying and filled with nutrients. As it pulls out thought form and beliefs that no longer serve you, it is also giving you exactly what you need. It is a remarkable cleansing, that will provide you with more gifts than you could have imagined. It is almost as if the mud or life situation is drawing the old beliefs out of you, giving you an opportunity to change them. As these thought come up don’t judge them- love and forgive them.
It’s in the ruin that the transformation takes place. It is in the transformation that miracles happen. Your transformation is a miracle.
Do whatever you need to care for yourself; practice yoga, meditate, take baths, write, sing and dance! Remember that you are not your life situation; it is just a movie you are watching. As you learn to identify more with your essence/soul/being you will find that no matter what movie is playing, you are still at peace.
Believe that what you already have is what you need. From the highest level you are one with all of your hearts desires, nothing is separate from you. You are loved beyond words.
When situations occur that the ego mind interprets as bad, you are not being punished. It does not mean that you are less loved; it means that you are MORE LOVED. You are becoming grace. The Uni-verse needs you to be the lotus- the healing light, love and compassion.
When you are willing to be open and loving to no matter what, you are not waiting for a miracle, you are the MIRACLE.
