Outgrowing your life
Over these last couple of years we have all been experiencing change in our lives in a pretty big way.
And when we go through change it literally changes the fit of our life; how we move, and breathe, and have our being in our own life may not make sense anymore.
That's why change is hard, because we no longer fit into something that once seemed to fit very well. Even in a hard life, a life of struggle, there is still familiarity. Which means that growing ourselves out of struggle and suffering can be hard , even when the goal is one of happiness and creativity.
The new life we are creating will have a different fit. We will have to move, and breathe, and choose differently in this new life. This is why there's always the temptation to toss our new habits, they make life uncomfortable.
The nature of life is expansion. If you plant an acorn in a paper cup, even though at first it seems to be a perfect fit, it will eventually grow right out of that paper cup.
The nature of life, through you, for you, as you, is expansion. Your consciousness is meant to expand. Your creative expression is meant to expand. The love and grace you call through you, is EXPANSION.
Whether you choose to remain a bystander in your life, or become a conscious participant in your life, one way or the other, you'll still outgrow your life.
Everyone struggles with change, even when we are as prepared as we can get. But here are some signs you may be pushing against change:
- You find yourself complaining and blaming to anyone who will listen.
- You are overly focused on problems.
- You blame the change for things that are going wrong.
- You want things to go back to how they were.
- You cannot forgive or let go.
- You need things to be your way.
You can see, forgiveness may play a major role in flowing with changes. You may need to give up all hope for a better past. You may need to give up the hope that you'll ever be able to time travel, and go back and make different decisions.
To fit into this ever expanding life of yours, try this:
- Pray / Meditation
- Start a practice of gratitude.
- Commit to living a complaint free life.
- Align with the Divine within.
- Seek only God / Spirit in ALL things.
These practices give you a soft and gentle focus, and you become receptive, allowing, and solution oriented.
When you are solution oriented, and seeking only God in all, you become an unstoppable force in your own life.
