Life is happening for you, not against you.

This week's focus is about trusting life is happening for you, not to, or against you. As Singer says 'Let go now, or fall' ... trusting life is naturally unfolding how it should. Not constantly trying to figure out how to keep things from happening, or what to do because they did happen. Not struggling with life.. deciding not to fight life and realising life isn't under out control. Let go now, as it will not be easier later.

We move into Part 3 of The Untethered Soul this week. This part is titled ‘Freeing Yourself’ and follows ‘Awakening Consciousness’ (the voice in your head), and ‘Experiencing Energy’ (including transcending our tendency to close), as we continue through The Untethered Soul, Singer writes:

‘The natural ups and downs of life can either generate personal growth or create personal fears. Which of these dominates is completely dependent upon how we view change. Change can be viewed as either exciting or frightening, but regardless of how we view it, we must all face the fact that change is the very nature of life. If you have a lot of fear, you won’t like change. You’ll try to create a world around you that is predictable, controllable, and definable.’ 

Becoming aware of how you experience change in life and if there is some fear, which is absolutely normal and human - perhaps it’s subtle, perhaps you’re not even aware of it. When we recognise when we’re fearful of something, it’s the start of us releasing it. And then there’s no imperative to try so hard to control life’s events and situations. You no longer resist the changes that occur and cause you to feel like you’re struggling with life.

Self Enquiry - Reflecting on the changes occurring in your life at the moment. Just pick one. Is there some fear present? Or are you full of excitement? Be honest with yourself. If there is some fear, can you recognise you have it and work to release it, rather than deny it? Resolving this week to be aware of when change brings a sense of fear, and knowing recognising this helps to release it and for you to not need to struggle. Trusting that life is happening for you, not to you.

To a week ahead, aware of how you’re experiencing change.
