When you hear someone preaching about enlightenment or about creating a peaceful life do you believe it is possible or do you write this individual off?
Did you know that even the peace gurus of the world experience challenge? Embracing peace is about maintaining your balance while in life’s most turbulent waters, and it is about mindfully making the most of this situation regardless.
Jill Bolte Taylor (a Google described Neuroanatomist, author and public speaker) offered this quote communicated by Mindvalley, “To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.”
Let’s reiterate, “…tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.”
Many times failure resides in an unrealistic expectation. If you expect the world to unfold like a blossoming flower that mesmerizes you by its floral scent each and every day, it is probable you are living with disappointment. Life isn’t always singing birds, rainbows and blossoming flowers, as a matter of fact, this scenario is more rare than normal. But, regardless, we must make the most with whatever manifestation is visiting in the present moment.
Does this seem a little harsh to you? Are you wondering what you can expect from life? Expect change and while you’re anticipating this continuous variation, use it to challenge you. Step up, find your balance and create a positive transformation regardless of the negativity that may be fueling the change.
Create your own blossom in your sacred space within and bring it into your life in times of hardship; use this bouquet to surface serenity. Think of it as something you are bringing to the world instead of something you’re expecting. With this perspective, you will always find success!
