Do Not be a Savior to Your Own Thoughts and Emotions

As we begin our journey on the spiritual path, we confront a host of suppressed emotions, thoughts and feelings. It is vital to uncover them and give them the space to surface and be brought into the light of awareness. Spending time with fear, depression, anxiety etc. helps us understand their nature; but make no mistake it’s not going to change them. At some point we must let them grow up and leave the house of our own heart and begin to break up with our trauma by being firm and saying enough, while letting them be on the simple level of our humanity.

Truth about Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening is like falling in love. If you fall in love with the very source of creation you inadvertently fall in love with all its expressions. Then you don’t have to try and love the diversities of life, your husband and wife, your job, anxieties and fears etc; which is impossible anyway. Rather, your love for the inner self in all things allows for one to bypass all the details of form. Then life is experienced as only love interacting with love.

Do Not Ever Forget This

If your nervous system and stress levels are dialed up to a nine you’re going to have thoughts that correspond to that level. Doesn’t make them true, it makes them paranoid. Don’t believe them my friends, be rational and let them go. Manage your stress not your thoughts.

The Scales of Life

Overwhelmed? Don’t try and remove things from your life. Instead, expand your emotional, psychological and spiritual space by increasing your capacity to hold more weight. Balance your life by resting as the fulcrum of positive and negative thoughts without adhering to either. Remain silent and you will begin to see that balance comes as a natural outcome of surrendering the impulse to manipulate the scales of life.
