“Life is a combination of happiness and pain.
Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional. Having a broad perspective on life gives you the strength to move forward through painful times.”
You’ve heard me say “Suffering is inevitable” that is not the truth, nor is it my truth. That’s me being human and projecting my doubt out into the world, as well as over myself. There is absolutely a solution to suffering, it’s “Enlightenment”. Also known by other names “Salvation”, “Liberation”, “Awakening” and I’m sure many others names. Don’t let things get lost translations, they all speak of the same end to suffering.
My belief comes from a guy who lived in India 2600 yrs ago, and went by the name “Siddhartha Gautama”. He figured out how to end suffering, and decided to share the blue print with anyone who wanted to know. They called him “Buddha”.
For me in order to achieve “Enlightenment” I must give up my worldly possessions. On this path I have to be completely honest with myself, I was born the 21st century. Buddha’s blueprint was written over 2600 yrs ago, I can’t imagine living 1 century ago, let alone 26 centuries ago! At this moment in time, that’s not going to work for me. So until then, I accept that suffering is inevitable for me.
On this path we have to be honest with ourselves at all times. I’m acknowledging my doubt, and accepting my current truth. I want to end my suffering, I know what is needed in order to achieve that, but I won’t do it. Therefore I must be grateful for all that life brings me, which includes moments of suffering. Because this is what I’ve chosen for myself. I can’t feel sorry for myself because It is what it is. If I get tired I know what it is I need to do to end it.
Here’s what I hope for the collective to understand. On this path, we don’t stop moving towards enlightenment even when there is doubt. No matter what we are always pushing forward. It’s ok to take our time and ask questions. It’s ok to enjoy the view, smell the flowers and eat the fruit from our harvest. We are planting seeds of peace, abundance, light, love, and prosperity. You don’t have to rush enlightenment, just enjoy as much of the journey as you can.
We have a lot to learn, and the more we allow things to happen in divine timing we’ll continue to be enlightened with each step forward. I refuse to let my doubt define my journey. Just because Im not ready for enlightenment today, doesn’t mean I won’t be tomorrow.
Keep dreaming and enjoy the view. There are a few blueprints out there to find guidance in this physical world, find a blueprint that resonates with you and then make it your own. 💚✨🙏🏾
