YOU TAKE YOURSELF WHEREVER YOU GO
What will you choose when you are amidst something that is ugly, toxic and dark? Very often, we deflect or absorb. The ability to transmute, is something if you practice, will help you realise who you truly are! It takes immense power, strength & stillness to be blossoming in an environment that is not conducive for growth. But the moment you realise that this not so conducive environment is actually the manure you need to elevate yourself to the next level; the moment you stop running from it and stand firm in it, you have laid the foundation for your true growth. You have laid the foundation for not just ordinary expansion, but an expansion that will shine through you and be an inspiration to others.
We look for greener pastures. We seek for better, the best. That’s hardwired in us. But there’s a difference in expansion which is a by-product of our inner growth & expansion which stems from running away from where you are. With no internal growth happening, if you just keep seeking for that which suits who you are, rest assured that you have created a recipe for your failure, suffering & pain. For, with no internal growth; you’ll find yourself in the best of the environments and still create the same dynamics there, for you take yourself wherever you go.
EARTH IS OUR SCHOOL
How long will you run? One day you will have to accept the Is ’ness of the situation, the reality of your character, strengths & who you are. When you realise who you are, you don’t run from situations but situations start transforming. People start behaving differently, you start seeing things differently and most important of all, you find joy amidst the outer chaos. The chaos then isn’t chaos but ingredient for your deep inner work, your practice ground. As Spiritual leaders have said, ‘Earth is our school, where we have come to realize our essence.’ And lotus is the right metaphor to let us know that even amidst dirt, ugliness; the light within you can shine through & bloom. Mastering this is a life-long practice! Only the aware ones choose to practice, for true freedom lies in that.
Leaving you will this question: Have you got what you are seeking for in life? If not, it’s time you change the question to: Have I realized who I am?
Believing in you,

When nothing seems to be working as per plan, that's the time when we are more prone to doing & attracting things in our lives that isn't for our highest good. The pain of being in that discomfort becomes so unbearable that our physical dimension wants to gravitate to all that we are not & all that we wouldn't jump into, had things been great as per our perspectives. Many call this the dark night of the soul.
I would rather call it the peak of a breakthrough.
This phase, this moment of endurance is very crucial for our expansion & growth. We can either slip again to our past patterns or jump into the unknown & experience a new way of being. As a human being who incarnated in this life, it is our natural tendency to succumb to our compulsive behaviours & be lured to settle in the known, familiar & what looks doable by our egoic mind. But this life is all about expansion. We can't keep ourselves in a box.
Our soul seeks for expansion & newer experiences. It has incarnated in this physical dimension to experience & fulfil the purpose for which we are here. However hard we try, we can't tame it. And if we wish to tame it, it'll loose the zest & vitality of life. And slowly after a certain point, we'll realize that it has lost all the vigour & vitality to be a 'YES' to life.
Expansion is our natural state of being. Denying it is a disservice that we do to ourselves & humanity for we are denying ourselves & all who are meant to be impacted by our expansion, the experience of our evolved perspective.
As you walk your journey of expansion, may you embrace the wisdom of your soul to guide you through all the temporal discomfort & find joy in the ride itself. This life is a ride, it's on us how we steer through everything that comes our way. The very fears that are holding you back are the very doors that will unlock the path that is ahead of you. Have compassion for your fears, look at it with unconditional presence & love and give it time to transmute to the creative force that it is. After all, just like you, your fears are also seeking for an expression in an expansive way through you to be able to transmute to a higher vibrational energy.
Enjoy the ride of life!
A note to self & all those going through dark times...
