Now is the moment… and dropping that overwhelming Ego.
What brings me to write this comes from two books
A NEW EARTH by Erkhart Tolle and
YOU ARE A BADASS how to stop doubting your greatness by Jen Sicaro
Both very much sum up our current situation in the world and that by finding our inner ‘being’ ie Stillness
This means dishing the hundred and one thoughts that the ego throws at us every day. Which only lead to hardship and unhappiness also outer happiness ie work, jobs, money are all cycles good and bad times loosing job or huge emotional upheaval after a bad relationship.
Can in many ways be a wake up call to finding true self but they are ever changing only through inner stillness being able to step back without emotion.
Being able to be amazed at the wonder of the body we currently inhabit through simple breathing exercises and finding ourselves living completely in the present without doubt or reliving past hardships or our past period.
That we can find harmony in ourselves in a way never found before and that our outer selves can then to be found with added depth. As to completely let go of the ego no matter how far down the journey you are is a liberating awakening of true wisdom and love.
As it allows growth concentration where once thoughts or that inner voice filled you with doubt and negativity. Positive vibes and as Tolle puts it enthusiasm and belief without ego centric power over taking this new knowledge.
Makes each and every person more awakened to how we can change this world for the better.
Jen Sicaro on the other hand brings in equal measure to love ourselves first and foremost that the universe is indeed plentiful. That it is our relationship and attitude towards life, relationships and money which keep many, many people forever recycling the same outcome and living our whole life on autopilot.
If we can combine actually loving ourselves to become butterflies and free spirits that we are all part of god, we are connected as one and to find our higher self to tune into what yoga/reiki itself opens us to.
The soul and how finely it touches our physical body and the environment around us, that it’s our emotions which rule the ego and to let go off this to connect to the soul. Concentrate on the here and now along with a healthy diet, being out in nature, spiritual pursuits and what feeds the soul not the ego.
We may indeed be able to make this a better world for us and the generations to come.
