That which is pliable

What if you could prevent the events that you don’t want to happen … and only make the things you want to have happen … happen??

Sounds great, right!  Well, this concept is the CORE of what is wrong with modern day mindsets!  Change is is much a part of life as birth, or death, or living … you simply cannot get away from it, or prevent it.  When you try to do so … you are literally making your life a miserable place. YOU are the one causing your own pain.

So much of the suffering that we experience in our lives is truly caused by ourselves.  We spend inordinate amounts of energy in trying to hold on to the things we want, as well as trying to prevent the things that we do NOT want.  In doing so, we are attempting to prevent Change from happening … we are trying to dictate to the Universe what we think it should be.

The harder we try, the more exertion we expend with the intent of making Change be what we want it to be??  The more pain we experience.

It’s that simple.

If you let go of trying to dictate your will to the Universe … to God … then your level of personal pain will decrease accordingly.  Change WILL happen, and there is nothing that you can do to prevent it … NOTHING.  The best thing that you can do is acknowledge that change will happen, accept that change … and simply let go; allow the change to take place and allow yourself to adapt.

We want SO much to be in control though … just allowing something to be and adapting ourselves to it is equated to failure.  We are trained, from a young age, that we should be able to impose our will on the world … to make things be what we want them to be.

Even if you are able to do this for a period of time?  It won’t last … it can’t.  It’s impossible.  So then you are left with the fact that once it DOES change, your entire world is shaken, broken, or crumbled.

That which is rigid breaks under pressure … that which is pliable … takes that same pressure without any effort at all.

This post was based of meditating on my prior post, “Constant Transformation“.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.

Lovely, thankyou. Just reading Meister Eckhart, and this is very resonant with a sermon entitled, “Of people who have not denied themselves and are full of their own will”.

Thank you :-). I’ll have to read that sermon, did you find it online?

Life is change. If you resist change, you’re fighting against your own life. Once I accepted it, I began to enjoy the ride! One door opens… !
