Expectations only lead to suffering.
What lives in the present is the only reality we possess. That which lies in the past is no longer existent and being it not ‘real’ how can we actually know it ever occurred?
When overcoming our past and painful memories we can attain this point of view in order for us to be able to return to our state of existing in happiness. Thinking: Our past is gone. It occurred but we can choose if we allow it to live in our present or decide to get past it and let it be there, where it lives, in the abstract non-existent timeline of our life-time happenings.
Accepting it can never happen and will never happen, can help us to move forward and cut the ties that pull us back. Look at your life with a sense of purpose, a guiding light paving the way to your dream. You are energetic. It is no coincidence that you are where you are right now. Intuition says there is a reason. If you are in a place of happiness, believe that you deserve it and work to maintain your course of peace and serenity.
If you are in a place of pain, think of it as a reminder of life, actual, life-bearing feel. You are alive, the pain has showed you a side of life you never knew. It opened a door for a new perspective, regardless of its unpleasant nature it can teach you a lot. Master the pain and always remember, you are the director of your orchestra. Transform that melody of dark and hurtful core into one of peaceful melodic grace for your own enjoyment.
On the other side of the dark tunnel stands the truest form of you in absolute calmness. It looks at you from the distance. Seeing how you went about the pain that was inflicted upon you and idealizing you on how spectacularly you have travelled through the tunnel and moved past the pain, overcoming it. You’re in so deep, that the side from which you entered gets farther and farther away each and every day.
Even though some days it feels like the pain stings you, cuts you open or stabs you in the heart, or maybe you feel a space, a hole in your soul… your true self knows nothing will ever again be the same. Time doesn’t stop for anyone and the peace you have so long awaited comes closer every step of the way. Only with deciding that lingering and having your heart ripped and shattered constantly, having it hanging from a thread , is no longer the life you want for yourself, only then will you be able to see the enormity of the awakening that awaits you. No matter how painful, cutting the thread where your heart lingers, may be, understand and open yourself to the possibility of being deserving of purity and calmness.
Pain is very valid and whatever pain you may be experiencing is allowing you to shape and transform into a different version of you. Life circumstances can be very cruel and daunting. Losing loved ones. cutting ties, traumatic and horrible events, depression, anxiety, loneliness, loss of self, etc… there are many different types of pain. Whatever pain you may be experiencing, always remember, your life is precious. Thousands and thousands of people came before you. Your ancestors overcame unimaginable barriers and made it through the pipe for survival, so always remember that you can too. The power within you is greater than you conceive, when deciding to tap into it, manifestations of higher origin will unfold.
