When Life is Hard

October 2, 2012

… why make things harder?

Life is meant to be easy, we are the ones who complicate it. Our human minds are so complex and capable of such great things, and as a result, we simply know too much. We overcomplicate things and over-think things. Always remember – the simplest answer is the best solution. 

We complicate many things for ourselves. In fact, believe it or not, we relish complicating things. Many of us have made a habit out of creating problems where none should exist. You might be saying, “I don’t do that,” but if you have ever forced your agenda on someone because you want things to be a certain way, you are indeed complicating things.

Things are what they are. We add complications when we try to hyper-control an outcome or demand things to be a certain way or have set expectations of the way something should be. Why not just let life be? Why create complications and set up a retaliatory position such that “I will not be happy unless this happens.” If that is your position in life, trust me you will never be happy.

Everything is energy and when you are putting the energy of complication out into the universe (through demands, expectations, unwillingness to compromise, etc…), the universe boomerangs it right back in the form of delivering more complicated situations and people into your life to answer what it assumes you are asking for.

Like attracts like. If you want a more easeful existence, work on putting out ease and grace into the world. Don’t need life to be a certain way for you to be happy. Know that the qualities you are sowing now are the seeds that will deliver the future to your doorstep. Sometimes life feels difficult enough, if we add to it by putting out complicated behavior, we are only creating more of a challenge for ourselves. Life can be complicated, but you do not have to be. 

The time has come to lighten our load – be less complicated. Treat life with more ease of being and then sit back and truly enjoy a more easeful existence.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
