If Life & My Purpose Work Is Supposed To Be Easy, Why Does It All Feel So Hard???

May 24, 2022

I hear this question all the time… and my answer has evolved as I have. I finally feel like I truly understand this to a deep level.

Life always gets to be easy.
Making $ always gets to be easy.
Finding love always gets to be easy.
Evolution into your true aligned self gets to be easy.

It all always gets to be easy… but it only sometimes is. lol

Because sometimes everything we have become combines into someone who is not ready to effortlessly BE or manifest the thing we desire.

And sometimes we haven’t, and we are standing at the edge of ourselves trying to gather a mental vision of what the next thing will feel and look like and we are REQUIRED to go into the UNKNOWN. We are required to cross our edge into the unknown space.

And for most of us, this feels freakin’ hard.
The very moment we reach the edge of what’s familiar and must keep walking.

Sensations come up in the body and we attach meaning to them… fear, anxiety, etc. We then tell a story about why we feel that and make predictions about what will likely or COULD happen… based on everything we have learned.

We don’t daydream about what AMAZING things are possible lol
We sit there and think of all that could go wrong.
Then wonder why it feels hard.

So IT CAN FEEL EASY, and it won’t always feel easy until we learn to re-associate with the sensations in our body and have some discipline in our mind about what we imagine can happen.

I cannot believe what my life has become!!!
Every day I have to work through the – this is too good to be true feelings!!

And every day I am reminded of all the times I felt this way and all the times IT JUST GOT EVEN BETTER.

It’s also very extraordinarily hard the times I imagine what could go wrong and associate the heart palpitations in my body as something bad is about to happen.

So, maybe we could let it all go.
If it’s hard, that’s ok… we will PROVE we are who we say we are in this moment.
If it’s easy, yay! Enjoy and create memories.

It’s all always fine.
The more we fight it all the longer the hard moments last.

My Conversation with Thich Nhat Hanh

What?! You mean… compassion for others includes the woman lying and hurting the man I love? It includes compassion for her?
That’s easy for you to say.
You don’t have a wife or kids that you love like I love them.
What’s that you say?
That’s how you love EVERYTHING? All humans? All animals and sentient beings?

Not My Place To Get Someone To See the “Truth”…

For as long as I can remember I have always felt responsible for helping others see the things that they cannot see… the boyfriend on drugs, the way they are being taken advantage of, the abuse happening…
I have always suffered deeply to see anyone else suffering ESPECIALLY when I can see a way for their suffering to end!
This is what drove me so hard to break out of all of the abuse I was experiencing, go to school for 10 years while working and being a single mother with almost zero child support, start my business and make my first Mill in 2 years… THAT is a lot of drive, and it ALL came from MY WANTING TO END OTHERS SUFFERING.

What I Resist, I Empower

I see this belief lately that “standing for a world where race & religion do not matter is naive.”
(And abusive)
It’s popped up a number of times in my feed and then once now in my own life.
”It’s exclusive and doesn’t account for all the biases happening today. Anyone who believes this only believes it because they don’t get it. They aren’t the ones experiencing the racism, sexism or etc.”
I understand the basis of this.

Someone Told Me “You are not as enlightened as you think you are.”

And I wondered what that meant? What an unusual statement?
I realized that there’s a whole entire culture referred to as “woke” which couldn’t possibly believe more differently than my mentors who are considered “enlightened”. Which was she referring to?
And I chuckled.
I’m definitely not either…
Talk about a wild time to exist looking to find your way to a life full of joy and peace!

Meditation Breakthrough

New one hour meditations….
I’m beginning to see what’s underneath all the crap….
I’m wildly resisting the reality of what’s happening to people and animals in the world… It feels like it cracks my brain and will burry me to accept it.

I Was Being A Hypocrite

Sometimes we expect people to handle things even better than we are capable of handling them simply because society would agree that’s how it should be handled.
But that’s still hypocrisy…
Just because we can make the best argument for that being how it should have been handled… (womennnnnn lol)
