Learn To Go With The Flow


7a- Festival of light, music and ideas, Sydney, NSW

TO SOME, ENLIGHTENMENT is just a word, but to others it’s a goal to achieve. A state of being that assists us to hopefully understand the reason for life and why we are here. To read Myth 1 click here. To read Myths 2 and 3 click here. Now Myth 4. The ‘5 Myths About Enlightenment’ was recently published in the series ‘Collective Evolution’.

4. Once I am enlightened my life will be free of problems.

When one is awakened, it’s not that only “positive” things come your way, rather it’s that you stop labelling things as positive or negative because all is seen as Life unfolding exactly however it unfolds.

You realize you are not in control of Life, Life just is; and you are not separate from Life. Even if we feel separate, that doesn’t make it so. A wave can feel separate from the ocean all it wants; that doesn’t make it so. And so you learn to trust Life fully and completely.

You learn to “go with the flow” and enjoy the journey. A roller coaster has both UPS and DOWNS. You cannot have a roller coaster with only UPS! As you get older you realize that Life goes by very quickly, and so the urge to whine and complain about every little thing suddenly becomes a waste of energy—energy that you no longer take for granted.

Remember, everyone is a good captain when the seas are calm… so let us not shy away from storms. We can view a storm as an insurmountable problem or as a challenge to go deeper and find out what we are truly made of. As the saying goes, ships were not designed to stay in the harbor.

Regardless of the outcome of the situation, you will learn something about yourself that you didn’t know. And when you awaken, you realize that what you are at your very core can never be harmed…

Continuing with Myth 5
