The drunkard can’t imagine life without alcohol. Those shrouded in delusion and who experience the emotional and spiritual suffering that goes with it are afraid of awakening from it. And those who seek their comfort in ”control” often drive the “car of their lives” off a cliff when they try to steer it where THEY want to go.
The unknown can be scary for all of us. But what do we really know anyway? We must learn to soar in the unknown sooner or later if we would awaken from the dream of our suffering and limitation. Most of us live in the bubble of what we accept as real or important based on past experience. But life is not set-up to protect this bubble. In fact, I have found that no matter how hard I try to protect it, my own bubble of comfort is never safe! It seems that life is mysteriously designed to pop our bubble as many times as needed in order to push us forward in our spiritual growth until we finally realize our highest truth as one with all.*
Breathe and relax into whatever troubles you. Feel a willingness to accept things as they are right now. Try to feel your chest and heart open and relax. This might come with some fear or emotion. But don’t let that stop you from releasing any tension you have. Try to make peace with what you feel, don’t try to suppress it, but let it go. Even visualize it rising upward into the sky. See it shrinking in the distance until it disappears.
Now go back to your breath and feel it’s peace in your heart. Fell fresh and clean inside, and taste each new breath as it fills your heart with peace. Feel a small bubble of peace at your center, but don’t hold on to it tightly. Instead, try to feel your bubble of peace expanding in all directions. Allow your experience of Peace to expand and to bless others in all directions. Allow it to reach beyond any challenge you face and to hold the situation and people who may be involved, in the Peace, Light, and Love of your heart.
Do what you must to feel awe, wonder, and gratitude in the quiet of your own heart daily. Inner Peace is required to be able to truly experience or share anything of depth with others.
Keep expanding your bubble of Peace and Love. If you do this, you’ll be guided to make the right choices and to live in a way that is harmonious and fulfilling, no matter what challenges come your way.
Peace and Joy to You,
I look forward to your thoughts or questions as always.
*The bubble of our love is not like bubbles found on the material plane. Those are more prone to burst if they continue to expand, but the bubble of our love finds strength in expansion and only becomes fragile if we try to limit its growth.
