If you want to reach enlightenment, the quickest and simplest way is to lighten up.
Lighten up, in every sense! As in both, shine your light, and don’t let things weigh you down.
We’re too hard on ourselves. We’re carrying too much baggage. We need to drop all of it and simply say,
“Alright, wait, what am I doing?!”
When I’m out and about, during the day, I’m usually very happy, moving around, running errands and just having a lot of fun. When comparing myself to the people around me, noticing everyone dragging themselves along by, like zombies, I think to myself,
“Wake up, people! This is life!”
Life is a privilege! A miracle that we are actively experiencing and creating!
So many people want to be happy, so many people want to feel enthusiastic and want to enjoy their life, but we’ve got to step back and really look at our lives.
What are you doing? Are your actions in alignment with your desires?
If you want to be happy, what are you doing to be happy?
If you want to feel excited, what are you doing to get excited?
If you want to feel enthusiastic and inspired, what are you doing, right now, to get inspired, to empower yourself, to enlighten yourself?
I notice how a lot of us aren’t taking the appropriate actions necessary to lead us to where we want to be. We’re just not doing it.
How can you expect to live that life, to feel a particular way, if you’re not doing anything to move you towards it?
Life requires action. Life requires movement. Life is movement. If you wish to truly enjoy it, you must move in accordance with the ebb and flow.
If life is a stream of water and you choose to stand against the flow, grabbing ahold of a rock as the stream of water passes you by, expect to struggle, because the flow is constant.
Life will continue on despite your efforts. At some point you will have to let go and allow the stream to pull you in. Fortunately, the direction that it is moving in is towards where you want to be.
So, what are you allowing to happen?
It doesn’t even require much effort. In fact, it’s effortless. All it takes is your willingness to let go and to allow life to move you in the right direction.
This is your life. You are here because you want to be here. You are experiencing life in this way because you chose for this. Life is constantly creating what is necessary in order to lead you towards your desired outcome.
Eventually you will get there. It’s inevitable. Whether it’s during this lifetime or another, you are destined to get to where you want to be. Are you going to put up a fight against the stream of life, causing it to pull you there, against your will, or will you let go and allow yourself to Get Carried Away?
