Nothing ever stays the same. It can’t. Our universe is in a constant state of flux. We evolve, the environment evolves and the planet evolves – even our solar system and thousands of others are constantly evolving. With all this evolution, nothing can stay the same – and thank God for that.
In this world, we live in a continual state of “maya” – the sanskrit term for “illusion.” We walk this earth, day-in and day-out living out a state of illusion. Nothing that we are experiencing is actually real – although it seems very real for obvious reasons. You have to live “in this world”, but maya teaches us that we should not be “of this world.” We should never get caught up in the daily dramas of life. Buying into your drama makes it very real for you (in fact, more real then it needs to be).
If you can remember that at the end of the day, all is just an illusion and that life is not about winning or losing but how you play the game, then it is easier to not attach to your perceived hardships. When you are going through a hard time, it is critical to remember that “this too shall pass.” Nothing in your life has power over you unless you give it. Giving into your pain, your conflicts, your suffering, your dashed hopes and dreams only brings you to one place – down. Don’t attach to your perceived hardships, let them simply “pass through you.” If you do not attach (or identify) with them they will not be yours and they will not linger and haunt you.
Life is too short to keep trying to get back up. If you don’t allow yourself to continually spiral downward, the path back up to the top will be much easier. If you are unhappy about anything going on in your life right now, stick around – the sun always has to come back out again after the rain. Remember this too shall pass.
