No more boxes!
A continuation of yesterday’s post.
What do you think?
Love is the way, in all ways.
It never let’s you down.
The expectations of the mind usually let you down…they are never true.
To expect, is to have a picture of how things must be, when that is a “known” idea.
We want what we know, not what is unknown.
That can be scary.
We want to trust that what it all looks like RIGHT NOW is what it will bloom into and finally become…the picture of perfect outcomes.
Love is fluid; it becomes more love.
I know for myself, I sought out the advice of others for many years. I wanted a guarantee. I wanted to know I would have my life develop some semblance of success.
I wanted a psychic, a friend, a stranger to promise I would dance in the meadows, sing on top the tallest peak, and lie down in my garden of sunflowers; happily, joyfully and easily.
Love would be mine; it would just show up rather than ask me to open myself to its possibilities.
In the past…
What I did not understand was I kept throwing obstacles in my way on this journey to nirvana! I had taken everything that is possible and stuffed it in a box marked “impossible”.
It all waited for me to open up the box rather than continually trip over it.
The box held my dreams, my love, happiness and joy…..and when I opened a corner of the box a brief whiff of possibility stirred my soul.
I started to believe there was a Santa for real….the Universe gives back what we offer, tenfold. You live with boxes, you get more boxes. You open up those boxes and ALLOW your life to unfold and you are met with magic.
I realized I had a lot of boxes.
My life had become so compartmentalized so I wouldn’t have to feel anything. I could operate as a robot. (YAY!)
Except that wasn’t the case.
I already had awareness of myself and how things work, AND when that’s the case you never really get to live in denial for long…the Universe will provide you with opportunities when you want to forget who YOU are…it opens you back up with whatever tools available. Ouch! Painfully or happily it is our choice.
The Universe forces you to deal with what stands in the way; meaning all those boxes inside of yourself, so you can BE open to the possibilities it offers.
We make choices out of fear.
We get stuck; we become immoveable to change, except by force.
And our boxes stuffed full, keep piling up, like a hoarder and seem to be keeping us safe; until we lose the job, we suffer a break-up, our kids move out, we go broke, we lose our house and everything associated with our “so-called life”.
And then, in a moment of quiet reprieve we may touch our soul; only to find it singing a different song then the one we’ve been playing to ourselves.
A song requiring us to embrace who we truly are and turn our lives to possibility.
The truth of your heart and soul.
Who you are and what purpose you connect with TRULY inside of yourself.
Discovering this important tune is just a step.
Now… to attend to those boxes.
A little space allows the room for opportunity.
Hoarding our failed expectations, multiple disappointments, and untraveled roads that constantly shout at us, “we will never amount to anything we want to be, really “be” in this life” is just a little curve in the road on our journey.
Although, it can become a delay. It depends on how long you want to hoard versus let go….to become who you truly are, right now.
We can spend years unwilling to let go of these boxes, which supply the elements to the story we like to tell not just ourselves, but others too. We believe those stories so much; it actually feels like part of the fabric, which makes up our life.
It is not.
It is just an experience.
Events happen, in and out of our control.
All that happens is a series of events, which we experience.
All of life is just an experience.
So, go experience it…and get out of the box!
