Someone once said that Life like climbing a mountain.
You’re on a journey from one state of being to another. Progressing, getting, heading forth, getting better - at stuff and things. Schooling yourself.
If they didn’t say that, well, they should have. If they didn’t say that then I’m saying it - and you can quote me.
That’s what it feels like doesn’t it?
Climbing up this mountain, and it’s hard going some days. You slip up, you feel like you fall back and lose that precious ground.
(I did a video on facebook, if you'd rather watch:
Sometimes you get so demoralised with the slipping, falling back into old habits you just give up.
“What’s the point?!”
“I’m never going to get there anyway!” as you throw away your intention, your vision for your life, for someday getting to the place you want to be, to finally being the person you want to become.
I want you to consider something though.
Not Up or Down, Balancing
Progressing in life is actually more like Buddha said - a razors edge.
Ooh! Sounds dramatic doesn’t it? But it’s this balancing act where your goal is to stay on balance. You fall off, of course you fall off, but what do you do? Just get back on.
You haven’t lost anything. You haven’t declined, this isn’t a game of snakes and ladders - you just fell off. You just forgot. You fell asleep.
Now you’re awake. Jump back on! Consistency you see. Get back on and do the things that you know you need to do.
You’ll stay there longer and longer and longer AND the things that make you fall off just get more and more obvious. You begin to master that fluid simple effortless focus of staying on until one day you find you’re staying on much much more than you’re falling off.
All because you simply jumped back on.
Being free of stress, negativity, limitation, and all your habits that you’re not proud of? The thing is it's not even a balancing act.
It’s a hot bath. And the small you, the ego, your limited beliefs and patterns are like an ice cube.
Being present and mindful - humour me and do it right now. Give yourself completely to now - if you do it fully, it's like slipping into a hot comfortable bath where it needs nothing else. All is well, right here. Right?
Here in the Now bath your limitations melt away, so simply, so effortlessly - just by you staying in the bath. That's where transformation comes about, just from soaking in the bath.
Not thinking about how you were going to do it, just by being in it.
Just Jump Back In
Through habit you jump out of the bath. In the beginning, a lot. No deal! You feel asleep.
Now you’re awake - jump back in to the one place that really satisfies, and the one place stress, drama, negativity can’t exist, and where everything you don’t need melts away - where you transform.
Keep it that simple.
The more you jump back in? The more you realise just how pleasant this bath is. It never gets cold. It always has your favourite rubber ducky.
Jump in and relax. The Now bath will take care of everything for you, in the right time. Nothing to get, nowhere to go.
