#Positive#Affirmation of the #day: "Today is a very exciting time in my life. I am on a wonderful adventure and will never go through this particular experience again." The choice to embrace every moment - however difficult or painful - offers you the opportunity to awaken out of the dream of separation. If you are willing to open to the totality of your experience, to be unwaveringly intimate with this moment and each moment as it unfolds, you will discover the radiant truth of wholeness that is at the core of everything.
The tendency is, of course, to turn away from what we don’t like, from what hurts, from what seems too dark or difficult to bear. And to turn towards what we do like, what is pleasurable and makes us feel good. This is ego’s self-protective mechanism and is a natural and necessary response to a physical threat. But when applied to a perceived psychological threat - such as facing an intense emotion or being challenged to go beyond your comfort zone - this mechanism creates suffering. It’s a habitual and unconscious mechanism that prevents you from recognizing that which is inherently alive and free in all circumstances. It also prevents you from knowing the truth of your essential nature as a radiant being. To see this egoic mechanism playing itself out is the beginning of awakening.
Our personalities are evolving. We are learning and growing. We make mistakes. And yet there is this place of wholeness with in us. A place that is untouched by all that has transpired in this lifetime, a place of certainty, of wisdom, of never ending compassion. We have a choice when faced with FEAR. We can see it as “Forget Everything And Run” (or False Evidence Appearing Real) or in a more positive opportunity as “Face Everything And Rise”. Take time this week to remember who you are. Be aware of how you respond to challenges during the week when you remember you are a being of light and that you have come to bring light to the world!
