What to do when life is horrible
It happens to us all – that wonderful love life collapses, your partner turns into an ogre, you stop loving your job. Whatever the circumstances we all suffer in a crisis. But what if you knew, deep down, that every crisis holds the possibility for transformation? Yes, a crisis holds danger for us – it threatens our wellbeing, our security and our sense of self. But at its core, a crisis is inviting change.
What if I were to tell you that you can invoke profound energies within yourself to help you? That you and I cannot find peace and intimacy through our little ego selves but we can open the door to our amazing inner zone of peace?
Firstly, we need to sit down with the problem, on our own. Why alone? Because we have to OWN the situation and we can only do that when alone and deeply focused. Once we allow ourselves to feel the deep sadness and pain we are then able to accept the facts. Write down what has happened. Don’t allow the pain to overcome you. Your pain body will rise up and swallow you if you allow it. Breathe deeply. Because at this point of profound acceptance of how things are, you are invoking the power of your inner wisdom. You cannot decide to be happy or peaceful or content. You know that. You have been grasping after those things for years. But now you have opened the inner door that will allow the grace and kindness and love inside your ancient self to arise.
Humanity is in crisis. The world we live in is suffering from the ego dominated madness of the human mind. Take this crisis and acknowlege the danger but know also, that it holds the profound seeds of change for the evolution of the human race. Your pain is part of this story and your ability to allow transformation in your own world is a significant act of healing for us all.
