A mesage to myself (and in turn, to you).
Who are you going to become? You always, always want to be doing something more worthwhile, more important, more. You always wonder whether you are on the right path, not remembering that you will this very questioning is a part of you, the feeling of waiting for something more. If only I had this, THEN I will be trully fulfilled. This will happen time and again; it is a part of who you are, as part of the human race. This is what makes the story continue…Accept this as an innate feature in you to keep on going, to keep pushing and striving and learning and growing. BUT ALSO, be okay with now and really see what’s going on here. ACCEPT. Everyone is this.
Stay present, aware and focused. The way to get things done, to accomplish, is to be focused in your tasks. And you cannot be focused in your task if you are bogged down in mind muck, the ifs and whys and am-I-on-the-right-paths. Once you are focused and aware, you will no longer have the urge to ponder the value or point of what you are doing–you will do becaue you love. You will love to do. You will have to, because your mind will no longer be there to distract you. Don’t do for the future. Do for now. The future will love you for it. Keep it simple. Settle into yourself, you are just now learning. Meditate, see more and more of the karmic connection, understand the cause and effect. You are, right at this very moment, living in effects and creating causes. Be aware enough to combat the thoughts and actions that cause yourself and others suffering. Every little cause; action, thought, word. To improve yourself all you need to do is understand that you are perfect right now. Treat yourself and all other life with loving kindness right now. Because all other life is you. This builds the confidence which dissintigrates the fear which allows you to finally go forth and accomplish. Love smashes fear. So know it and believe it now: YOU ARE ALREADY PERFECT.
Go forth, be aware and conquer.
