Spiritual awakening is letting go of the mental blocks that prevent us from recognizing the truth. It doesn’t have to be a process, but most of us experience it that way. It feels like a process of releasing the blocks to realizing our own Christ nature while cultivating the willingness to re-cognize, and remember our Oneness with Spirit, and all life,
It’s when we’re remembering the truth that it feels like we’re learning. Those realizations of truth are what actually makes a real difference in our lives in terms of improving the quality of our experience.
As a spiritual student I’ve realized that each day I can learn things that improve the quality of every day of the rest of my life, but in order to do so I have to really be truly willing to relinquish my attachment to how things have been in the past. I have to be willing to be present in the moment now, because that’s where the Love is and Love is our healer.
If I’m grumbling about the past, and ruminating about my errors in the past then I’m not open to learn something about the power of Love in this moment.
If I’m thinking things should be different then I’m not really available for a miracle.
Being open to miracles is ALL about being open to the helpful learning/remembering.
Being open to a miracle means being open to see the truth rather than the story I made up about the past. It’s so helpful to recognize that when I’m upset, I’m clinging to some decision I made in the past and the pain and upset I’m feeling in the current moment isn’t because of what’s happening now, it’s because I’m actually recreating my pain from the past once again.
We often think we have no choice but to experience pain in a situation that we wish were different, but I’ve learned that I can let go of wishing things were different and be grateful for what is even though just a moment ago I was wishing it was different.
Wishing things were different isn’t helpful. Learning I can let go of wishing it were different and put my attention, instead, on being focused for how I can be open and available for Love now is very helpful.
To dramatically, and I do mean DRAMATICALLY, improve the quality of your life, commit to being grateful for things as they are, even when it’s not what you’d wish for.
Today I’m going to be driving to our family’s home in Maine. I’m bringing Bodhi and Sattva with me. It’s a long drive, and I don’t look forward to it, but I don’t dread it either. I will enjoy my day even though it will be spent driving in the car. I choose to be peaceful and harmonious for the whole day and I am grateful that I can’t have it any other way.
I don’t know what anything is for except that I know it’s for my good – of this, I am certain and in that certainty lies the Peace of God.
Learning to be certain that everything is for my good is very helpful indeed!
