This moment we are in is a moment of awakening. It’s not a small thing, and contrary to popular myth, awakenings are highly uncomfortable.
If this is your first time facing something of this nature in a significant way, it can be a shock to the system.
It uproots a core inherent belief that most of us hold from an early age: the belief that someone in charge knows what’s going to happen.
Suddenly you realize that nobody knows.
How do you react to this moment?
If you’re a person prone to anxiety, your natural reaction will be to hold on even tighter to your sense of control, while you try to find rooting in what you know about the future.
This is completely normal.
It is also futile, because you can’t root in the future. You can only root in the present.
Today’s numbers don’t mean anything for next week. What happened in the past is nice to know, but not relevant.
The stories your mind is telling may have some basis in fact, but they are not real or true. All stories are lies.
The only thing real is what is happening now.
And this offers us our greatest opportunity: acceptance of what is here.
Set aside the facts from the past and the projections of the future.
The invitation at this time is to be here now. To root in the present, to be with what’s real in this moment.
Embrace the adventure of what will happen.
If you’re willing, you will receive the greatest gift:
This is freedom.
