You were not born to struggle. You were not born to live a life where the moments of joy are few and far between. You were not born to toil in your work five days a week, with fleeting moments of happiness on weekends. You were not born to live with limited energy, feeling exhausted at the end of each day. You were not born to worry or be afraid. You were not born to suffer. What would be the point of your life? You are meant to experience life to its fullest and have everything you want and, at the same time, be filled with joy, health, vitality, excitement, and love, because that is an amazing life. — Rhonda Byrne Can you accept that this is Truth. Not a truth for just some, but for all! A truth for you! So how can you embrace this truth? How do you make it your reality? How do you embrace this truth when our society plays by different rules.
Begin close to you, to home, to your heart. Find things that truly invigorate you, bring you bliss, joy, delight and when you are in the moment with these things, these people, these opportunities, your soul sings! Now commit. Commit to yourself that you will invite these into your life on a regular basis. Start with one a day. What could it be? A power dance? A long walk in nature? A chant sung as you beat a drum or shake a rattle? A quiet moment with a friend prone in the grass gazing at the stars? What would delight your soul?
Why should we struggle to find our happiness? Why should we suffer, worry and fear? We know our thoughts are so powerful. Why not make these thoughts be of wonder, peace, joy, love, or hope? If the power of these thoughts were sought as regularly as we spend our time in worry and fret, perhaps, just maybe things would shift.
Life is meant to be beautiful, amazing and astounding. We trap ourselves into a place of boredom, ugly loss, and pain. And it is not an energy that our soul resonates with, so it tries to reject it. It tries to avoid it, to turn away from it and to denounce it. And so we become uncomfortable, unhappy and restricted. The only way out of this discomfort is to either become numb to it or to replace it. It is a powerful choice we can make. It may not be a choice that is always easy, but it is there. Choose to live the life of wondrous grace, abundant beauty and vibrant energies.
