It requires deliberate effort, and practice, when continuous waves of doubt and fear chatter in surround sound.
I move from study to hot beverage, on the mat, into a short conversation over the phone, back to posing, and finally to meditation.
My silly ego taunts: "it's not working!"
I'm learning it's not about the result, but consistent action.
TURN TO SPIRIT.
ALLOW LOVE & LIGHT TO LEAD.
Regardless of what I feel, or notice through the avalanche of brain and ego...
SURRENDER AND LET GO!
Words from Adyashanti finally calm the storm, I thought you might enjoy them:
"This universe where you find yourself has been unfolding for billions of years, birthing stars, exploding stars, and then creating out of stardust this magical and mysterious planet we call home. If you start from the beginning and fast-forward, watching the unfolding of Life like a movie, you will see that forms—a planet, a mountain, a ladybug, a human being—continuously appear and disappear.
