In my younger days I always found it so hard to stop and do nothing. The guilt song would start singing in my mind. It did not have a sweet melody! That word SHOULD would be the main word in the chorus..YOU SHOULD be doing.....instead of just BEING. I learned to exchange should for could and then tell myself that I was going to enjoy just Being instead. To awaken to the absolute deep and pure LOVE that I AM in my essence I surrendered my life over to my Higher Self/Love/God or whatever you want to call it. That is the only free will choice one can make I discovered. My life became an amazing adventure, not all of it seemed to be wonderful I can tell you. However, as I look back and reflect, I see clearly that it was all so very necessary in order for me to really LIVE LOVE. There is a very big difference between thinking you are LOVE and really LIVING LOVE. Every single day is so beautiful in this garden of surrender. Each moment brings miracles when I wear my LOVE glasses. Everyone and everything looks so beautiful. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. It always was extraordinary but when my judgemental mind was the master of the show I could not see it. As I surrendered and let my Higher/Love/God mind become the master, well my life became so different. Is is not perfect by any means, but it is perfectly imperfect. Each day brings challenges and when I allow life to unfold in the way that it wants to and I stop resisting it, then peace and joy are the rewards. I used to get so upset when 'my' plans would be turned upside down by unavoidable changes and would make everyone around me miserable by insisting they were 'wrong'! Now I mostly just let go and give everyone the freedom to do as they feel to and surrender to the idea that 'I am in control'! Control has only brought me suffering, it was always an illusion of my judgemental mind. I hope a beautiful butterfly lands on you today and kisses you with its gentle wings.
