Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and whatever you resist persists. Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth p.75
On your craziest day, it doesn’t seem possible to stop and breathe. In the middle of running around, trying to get things done, taking care of your family, balancing a business, breathing doesn’t seem like an option.
Have you ever watched a little kid spin in a circle. The faster they spin, the dizzier they get. Then they fall down and find it funny because they still feel like they’re spinning.
Your life may feel like that. You spin faster and faster all day, until you fall down exhausted in bed. Even then the world doesn’t stop spinning. In the morning you feel like you haven’t slept at all. Not so funny.
How To Stop Spinning?
Just let go. Let go of resistant thoughts. Let go of judgement. Let go of having to be right. Let go of have to’s and should’s.
It’s scary to let go. You’re so used to spinning it feels normal. Letting go (which is easier by the way) feels like loosing control.
Remember the spinning kids. When they let go, they fall on the ground and just laugh. They feel the freedom of letting go. Their mixed up world that went blurring by, slowly comes into focus.
Just For Today
Let go of one thing today. Maybe it’s judgement. Let it go and fill it’s spot with love and compassion. See what happens. You might find yourself giggling for no reason.
