Getting Closure

broken-chain-linkLife is a series of events, often one thing linking to the next. But like a chain, the integrity of the whole depends on the integrity of each link.

If the link is left open,  the whole is compromised, and the chain cannot be lengthened with confidence. Only when it is intact, can it properly serve the subsequent link.

Learning an encountered lesson provides closure and maintains the integrity of your overall experience. If it feels like you’re falling apart, check the individual links.

Tweet this: Closure must come from within.

On the Defense

argueWhen we feel attacked or challenged, defense mode may quickly surface. It’s easy to match the level of negativity being presented.

A negative exchange we have with another is a dysfunctional dance. However, we get to decide whether or not we accept.

A defensive reaction is only possible when we identify with a role we’re taking on. The work of consciousness is to remember the truth of who you are and not get pulled out of yourself by external forces.

The next time you find yourself on the defensive, assess the role that you have assumed, take a breath, then decline to play the part. And if it’s after the fact, go easy on yourself. Remember, returning to your center is as much a part of the practice as being centered.

Tweet this: Spirit needs no defense.

When It’s Too Much

Sometimes it feels as if too much is coming towards you. Your responsibilities, others’ expectations, random challenges, dreams unrealized, and the list goes on. When overwhelm hits, there’s only one question you need to ask.

“What is the most loving thing I can do for myself in this moment?”

It may be to speak up for yourself. To cry. To sleep. To leave. To dance. To laugh.

It may feel odd or illogical, but you have to trust that if you earnestly ask and intently listen, your next move will make itself known. It’s impossible to sort through all the tangles simultaneously. Focus your attention on the one thread that feels compelling. It’s an invitation to unravel the complexity created by your mind.

Tweet this: Answers arise in the spaciousness you consciously create.

Once Upon a Time…

tumblr_njttp8aZGs1sjr32yo1_500We’re primed for stories. We grow up on them…but somewhere along the way, they lose their magical themes. We start to tell ourselves harsher, unforgiving tales about who we are in the world. Somehow, the worse a story is, the easier it is to imagine.

Now, many sources will tell you to drop your stories in order to release yourself. But not all stories are bad. You can choose to script your story differently. You can remind yourself of your miraculous origins and tell the stories of infinite possibility. As the storyteller, you can make a different choice.

Tweet this: Stories can impede or empower. Choose wisely.

A Softer Touch

It’s easy to grow a thin shell of armor as a response to a sometimes harsh world.

Although the good in the world outweighs the bad, sensational news cycles, compassionless workspaces, and fearful naysayers can skew our perspectives.

When you find yourself reacting to the negative, be reminded that you did not come here to be shaped by hardened but hollow influences. You came to sculpt the world you live in. To dissolve the dysfunction not succumb to it.

Like relentlessly flowing water on rock, your softness is ultimately your power.

Tweet this: Softness can etch a more loving path.
