exists independent of the Supreme Power. Everything you experience, even the
difficult things in life, are your teachers. The one who realizes the Truth
blesses everything. How can I be overwhelmed by anything that happens? That is
only an idea. You are the untouched One. Do not be afraid."
This Spring has provided many
opportunities to spend time practicing authenticity. There is no doubt that it
takes a firm resolve to stop spinning the story and taking a stand for what our
True Self leads us to.
At Light Tree, an essential part of
our practice is to stop as soon as we notice ourselves being sucked into our
seeming reality. From there we are still and become the observer. We are
curious to notice what is happening when the unfolding drama seems real in some
way. From there, we stand back, either physically or mentally and wait.
The wait is the most important part.
Instead of rushing ahead, fixing, controlling and deciding what’s best, we
simply step back. Our intention is “ Teach me, Guide me, Show me.” Sometimes
our guidance comes quickly, sometimes a week later, sometimes we never know.
Somehow it just feels better.
One thing is for sure, the outcome is
always just right when we trust our guidance and don’t try to act on impulse
and animal instinct. After a while it becomes easier to let our life unfold
through us instead of forcing it through the blender of our fears before we
fling it out into the Universe.
Its also important to sit back and
laugh at our efforts to control the uncontollable. We can witness our craziness
with compassion and be glad that its all unfolding according to a bigger plan.
We don’t need to worry at all. What a relief to know we can just be open and
ask for help.
Our True Nature is inseparable from
the Divine and cannot be changed no matter how much we try to run. We are only
trying to escape from ourselves anyway.
