Regardless of what appears to you to be happening, how you view this moment is always fresh. You can always step back and review things from another angle or turn the page. You are given the chance to make something of yourself. Take a moment to envision something that would shatter your ideas of what is possible. Fearless living takes being human to a new level. This life is less about creating roles than removing all that prevents you from seeing you already soar. God gives you the gift of life and what you do with your life is your gift to him and yourself.
Everything you do or do not do is an effort to recognize what you really want. Finding this article is no accident. Noticing particular situations or people in your life is no accident. Growing more aware of what you think and feel is no accident. In fact, there are no accidents.
Even now, you are noticing certain things about yourself and your life that feel completely new. Awarenss is expanding. Know you are always in the right place, in the right moment. Watch what you resist letting go, what is disappearing from your life. Be aware of what you are feeling. Your feelings are the path to what is hidden right in front of you. Everything that matters is ready for you to embrace it when you are. Any pressure or stress you feel comes from you.
Notice what revs you up and gets you excited. You may be someone who is conditioned to do, do, do and go, go, go. You may pride yourself on your planning and strategies to make yourself feel you live life to the fullest. As fun as it is to experience different places and activities, what if you could be happy and find something worthwhile smelling the flowers right where you are?
Listen to words you use in conversation. It is easy to allow yourself to focus on what you are doing later today, tomorrow or on the horizon, or what you have already done. In doing so, notice the unseen and unmentioned is here and now. If you feel anything other than appreciation about where you are and all that is unfolding in life, then get ready for another way of seeing. You can do something, everything or nothing and it all smells of the same love in the heart.
As you nurture faith, joy can arise. Trust the universe, come what may, and joy is all that is felt. Suddenly, you know that whatever you need presents in your life without openly asking for it. When you ask for things, you simply postpone what is here in the moment you are receptive. Turn your head to the side and glimpse a spider spinning a web. Notice how it feels to be a dew droplet glistening in the midst of this unfolding miracle. Whatever you do, you are a miracle.
A joyful feeling of self-respect or good conscience is a stepping stone to deeper happiness and fuller concentration on what is real. Notice that to focus on what feels good, on what reflects balance and harmony, is deeply calming. Focusing on what does not appear to be going smoothly evokes a sense that something needs fixing or improving, and you take steps to make it happen. In this case, effort appears to be a stepping stone to joy that you tell yourself is within reach.
Notice what bliss feels like. The deeper the focus on joy, the clearer the insight that arises.
In this particular program, Jeff offers his own compelling story about what caused him to wake up, see his behaviour and life in a whole new way. He shares how direct experience enables each of us to explore the power of ego to control us and what it is to let go of all we think is important. He reflects on his resistance to certain attachments, ambitious professional roles and lifestyle, and how he now feels born again, and all his experiences makes him who is his right now. Losing what he thought was important enables him to see the world and his place in it with new eyes.
Whether life-changing revelations are triggered by relationship break-ups, environmental disasters, health concerns, work-related crises or something else, the universal message is clear: Move from self-centred to soul- centred living. Nothing is hard unless you believe it is. The underlying question is, why allow things to escalate to where crisis is what you require to shift from seeing your life through the selfish head to seeing through the compassionate heart?
The irony and blessing is that what the ego thinks matters temporarily hides who we really are. The unreal life that temporarily engages our attention can be very convincing. However, the real is ever-present and cannot die. It is part of an individual journey to forget how to feel what is right, and also an option for each person to shift back from ego-based thinking to heartfelt or authentic living. You may be taught to over-complicate what is simple, but whatever it takes, the universe brings you to a point where you are invited to trust your own feelings more. The more you trust in the unknown, the more the universe gives you reason to trust life. Honouring this is easy. Live from the heart a new kind of purpose-driven life. Lick your finger to feel the wind direction. Go with it. Shift from doing to being. Be aware and love who you choose to be.
