Here it is.
Simple. Actually, simplicity is the key. That’s why it seems so hard to BE: we like to complicate!
First: Have you made your choice about LIFE? In other words, have you truly chosen to LIVE?
Don’t take it lightly, please. Stop. Look within you and see. Have you ever really chosen to LIVE?
We tend to move through life because we are here, not because we truly want to be here! It is called survival and the shift from just surviving to actually living is the first greatest shift towards the magic in life… The thing is, life can’t give you anything if you aren’t accepting to live it… to be in it… to participate in it… to tell it what you choose… to play with it...
And choose to live not because your children need you, because your husband or wife needs you, because your friends need you, because your parents need you, because your work needs you, because the Earth needs you, because you have a Mission, because you’re going to save the World… Just because you accept to finally receive this magnificent gift you have been given, and have been rejecting, pretending not to have! Because you finally choose to respect life and all that it contains, including taking care of your body – the Sacred Temple that you inhabit – otherwise LIFE cannot inhabit you!... And you cannot receive what you choose… and you cannot give the SPECIAL ONE that you are back to LIFE – you cannot share your unique treasures and all in all, you cannot BE… if you´re not at HOME.
The hitch is when you truly choose to LIVE, death cannot save you! You can no longer wish you would die or disappear whenever the going gets tough! You finally assume yourself, your body, your space, your time, your place in the perfect orchestra of existence. No more running away – it’s time to PLAY!
Once you choose to live and accept you are alive – you realize you have all you have sought for, all you will ever possibly need – it’s there in you in all forms and sizes. That’s where you start seeing the miracles and living your PURPOSE.
Second: Each moment you have the choice to FIGHT against or to COOPERATE with… What do you choose?
The law of survival obeys the “fight or flight” principle. Either you fight against what you consider endangers your survival, or you run away from it, pretending it can’t hurt you – so you alienate from feeling love and believe in the illusion of fear – actually, you alienate from LIFE, because it seems too painful to bear at times. The thing is, when you build your walls, keeping feeling out, you close up to everything – the so called good feelings as well. And then you sleepwalk, and sleeptalk, believing you are living – but you are just surviving.
Cooperating with life is opening up to it – all of it, not just the parts you consider are worth opening up to. It is being bold enough to dive into it, even when you have no idea what you’re going to find! I mean, you know all about surviving, you know the results it usually brings… but if you haven’t chosen to Live, you realize you know nothing about living, so you fear what you will find. There’s no way to know but to jump! Go on… it’s ok… and it's worth it. Really!
Third: But before moving on, consider – DRAMA or SIMPLICITY? In fact, it is the same as FIGHT of COOPERATE? Do you choose to live in a battlefield or a playground?
Adrenaline is a very addictive self-made drug. It costs no money but it costs you your LIFE and all that it could contain!!! Drama is the main source for adrenaline and it works wonders to remind us that we are alive…surviving the hardships, the struggle, the strife, we are strong, we are still here! Well if you are still here, why not use the precious time you have making things simple for a change, and see what results that brings you? Afraid of becoming bored? I can assure you when you choose to LIVE and open up your FEELING sensors full blast, life is INTENSE! Very intense! Non dramatic is much more intense than dramatic! It’s full screen, High Definition, total Surround System, the Highest Technology you can possibly access! And you will have more energy available than ever before, because you’re not wasting it in the struggle for survival, which is pretty hard work, I must say.
Fourth: YES or NO?
Take a look at your daily mind chatter. How much rejection is there in it? How many no’s do you say? How many impossibles can you find? How many doors do you close? How many opportunities do you deny yourself? How many people do you exclude?
This is not about a mind game of substituting YES for NO! That might seem to work at a more superficial level, but deep down the “shit” (sorry about that!:) remains!! Saying YES, means shifting from rejection mode to acceptance/cooperation mode – saying YES to LIFE. “Yes, I choose to Live” could be a mantra, initially, just for you to consider it long enough, until it becomes a real, firm choice, from deep within you. That’s when the shift truly happens.
Fifth: WORRY or PLAY?
Yes, that’s it. You can either worry and get lost in it, or you can play with each experience as it comes to you and find yourself (and let the solution show you its own way). When you worry, you hinder your magical “problem solving” capacities! And since you are a master problem creator, you are also a master problem solver, one could not exist without the other. Now, do you want to concentrate on the problem or on the solution?
SOULUTION, I like to call it.
Sixth: Last but not least – Shhhhhhh… SILIENCE!
Stop polluting your world with worry, stress, anxiety, drama, fear – SMALLNESS!!!!
Yes. SILENCE allows you to see your GRANDNESS – and you are so grand it might be frightening to accept at first. But sooner or later it’s inevitable that you assume your grandness. That’s just the way it is. It’s WHO YOU TRULY ARE! You can keep on playing the pretend game for as long as you like, eternity never ends – it is the compassionate breath of ALL THAT IS, watching your film, no matter what it is, and knowing all is well in all of creation, simply because who you are can never be taken from you – IT IS – YOU ARE!
Breathe SILENCE and discover your TRUE SELF.
And that’s it. This is how the MAGIC HAPPENS.
Have you ever truly chosen to LIVE?
Each moment you have the choice between FIGHTING against or COOPERATING with… what do you choose?
DRAMA or SIMPLICITY – do you choose to live in a battlefield or a playground?
YES or NO?
Please look at your daily mind chatter. How much rejection is there? How many no’s do you say? How many impossibles do you find? How many doors do you close? How many opportunities do you deny yourself? How many people do you exclude?
Do you choose to concentrate on the problem or the solution?
