Comparing Makes Me Crunchy
Comparing ourselves to others, or comparing ourselves to some inner perfection is a sure fire way to deplete your energy, self worth and vibrancy. I know this personally!
When I think of feeling behind or not as far along as my contemporaries, this VOICE begins to berade me. It’s like I
leave the warmth and saftey of my compassionate heart and enter into battle with this Voice that is sure I’m a looser.
And yet when I bring my attention inward, soften my gaze upon the outside world, literally relax my shoulders and let go affirming I trust the process of life, that I am taken care of, that I’m not the Doer… then I can somehow open to another dimension of existance where Enthusiasm and Life Force can awaken and surge through me… and yet I still ‘do’ things that are fueled from inner creativity, not outward competition.
Today I awoke with great plans for an adventure to the zoo with Gabe and his buddy. Yet I am feeling a cold coming on and I hear the message:. “Slow down. Listen.Allow. Let it be simple. Let go of perfection or competition.” Yesterday I made homemade pancakes. Today might be left overs.
And I am wearing my exotic mumu. If today’s not a high fashion day, that’s OK too, I intend to be gentle, loving, tender, gracious, patient and unconditionally loving of myself today… breathe and let the Voice go… and open my heart to deeper Faith that it will all get done in perfect time, that I am taken care of, that the process of life is ON my side, that miracles wait around every corner and that exactly as I am, I am enough.>
