This took me a LONG time to get my head around when it came to spirituality and creativity. I enjoyed the sweeter parts, the ‘oh that’s so lovely’ feeling, the gentle ‘well that makes sense’ realisations that never shocked, but felt warm and fuzzy. I sought out teachers who would not deliver the challenging truths but would placate my fears, make me feel special and fuel my ego in the process.
Then suddenly I could no longer ignore that this was not the right path for me. That my education though tinted in rose, was not real, gritty and tenacious, and I was, in fact, stunting my own growth.
I sought out teachers who would deliver to me a process and sequence of self realisation founded in truth. I sought out techniques and mind-body processes that would allow me to really and truly discover my own truth. And it’s much harder work. I know why I instinctively shied away from it. Because it’s uncomfortable and confronting. But my god, once you step into this arena, you can’t believe you played it so safe before.
So I really, really encourage you to take a look at where in your life you are playing it safe, keeping yourself small, and keeping the whole thing tinted in rose. Where could you get uncomfortable, step into the breach and truly begin to find the truth for yourself? Go there.
Sent with love,
