Ready for some inner alchemy and magic? Flip your obstacles from being a problem to being the doorway to your most expansive radical freedom!
How much of your time do you waste on the “problems” in your life? I know used to do it all the time. I would unconsciously spend loads of precious mental and emotional energy on the things I wished were different. I would think resentfully about how unfair it all was, how life would be so awesome if only this person were not causing me pain, or if only i had more money, or if only this project would work out exactly as I want it to, or if people would recognize me, etc… At some point along the way, I realized there must be another way, and I began to surrender and listen more closely to what life is telling me. I know many people who have come to this point, too. Maybe it takes a big crash, maybe it spontaneously arises by grace, or maybe we actually get all the success and the love we were chasing and realize its not enough.
So what else is there? How do we experience our most expansive state of consciousness, radical freedom, and joy? In my experience through the practices of yoga, I have discovered that contentment is on the other side of feeling things fully.
The stress you feel, the sadness, the fear, the resistance… these are not to be avoided, numbed out, or fixed. The supposed obstacle in your life which is triggering these feeling is not the problem either. What you are feeling is the friction of bumping up against the places in yourself which are out of alignment. You are being guided to transform the parts of yourself which keep you from being the most radiant divine embodiment of Love which you truly are. The more we are willing to dive into these difficult places in ourselves, love them, and transmute them, the more we see our life path clearly, and the process of living, working, and serving becomes more joyful.
“Life always gives us
exactly the teacher we need
at every moment.
This includes every mosquito,
every red light,
every traffic jam,
every obnoxious supervisor (or employee),
every illness, every loss,
every moment of joy or depression,
every piece of garbage,
Every moment is the guru.”
― Charlotte Joko Beck
