Good morning beautiful people,
I do hope that you are well and healthy, wherever you are in the world.
This week is Passover, the Jewish celebration of freedom, humility and finding our true home, which always sparks from within.
What a challenge to surrender to the life that is for us, instead of living the life we should. What a blessing to live from a place of knowing that whatever comes our way, whether in the form of pain or joy, is the path to our highest good.
Pain only becomes unbearable, in the form of suffering, when we project and reject what is, instead of surrendering to it.
So let’s stop thinking that other people have it right, or have the perfect life. We are all doing our best, and as the nature of life is impermanence, perfection never stays, anyways.
By no means do I say contemplate and stop doing, but our barometer is within, and we know, when it feels that the path we are on is right, even if it feels challenging. Honesty and responsibility are key. There is no faking, there is only surrendering.
“After all, there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen.
May you feel honest
May you feel humble
May you let go of the stories of how it should be.
Your feedbacks and comments are always a joy to read. That you for taking the time.
With love and deep respect
