For anyone who’s been feeling stressed — from world events or just struggling with all the gray days here in the middle of winter — this might be helpful:
I’ve been feeling really stressed out — waking up super early in a panic. Today I was thinking about all the things I could change — like maybe I’d feel better if I lived in California again or if I had a super high-profile job again. I was thinking about things I could change outside of myself. And then I had an insight, as though from a wise woman within: I could change everything and maybe I’d feel better for a little bit, and yet true change comes from within. All the world could be in chaos and the only place where I can truly find peace is within myself — to be still in the eye of the storm. Peace begins with me.
This evening I read an article that recommended looking at things from different perspectives, and then a perspective I’d heard from a wise teacher came to me and made perfect sense: What if everything is perfect just as it is right now? What if I’m doing great just as I am right now? What if everything’s going to be ok? What if there is nothing to worry about, because everything is happening exactly as it’s supposed to be? And what if it’s totally ok to just relax? To go with the flow and enjoy the ride? What if I don’t need to do more, be more or have more than this moment right now?
I breathed this in and felt every knot in me come untied. I’ve heard that the Truth feels light. This feels light and true to me. I hope it’s helpful to you too. 🌟❤🌟
