Sit down and pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea. I have some refreshing and profound news to share with you.
While away on my recent Passion Quest, lo and behold, I discovered what I consider to be one of the great secrets of the universe. Take a deep breath in and here’s the important part. Let it out. Exhale. The secret to greater joy and happiness is… to relax. I don’t mean that you need to go away on vacation to relax. You don’t need to get on a plane or even in your car. But you do need to travel to a different state. A state of relaxation. I’m talking about living your life in a greater state of relaxation.
When we’re uptight, worrying, concerned about the past and obsessing about the future, we are tense. Our bodies, brains and cells are all tight, constricted… literally uptight. As we exhale and relax we actually can return to our more natural state of being, a higher vibration. From this place, we can access greater creativity and wisdom. From here, wisdom is available that isn’t when we’re tied in a knot or walking around as a bundle of nerves. From here we can flow and be in synch with the miracles of life.
And from here, you are connected to the state of divinity within. Our own divine nature is a state of openness that comes from relaxing.
As we relax and lift our burdens (and/or the burdens of others) we literally lighten up. This is what the masters mean when they talk about enlightenment. As we relax, our ego lessens and loosens its grip and what we’re left with is the gift of who we really are. From here, you will find greater clarity and self-confidence. As we lighten up our body and mind, so do we also lighten our heart and souls.
At a slower pace or a more natural rhythm, life and all of its glory, brilliance and miracles can catch up with you. Relaxing can take us into deeper faith. Faith is the gateway to the unknown and the unknown is the path to the Divine.
See who you are in this altered state of relaxation. Explore how long you can actually stay here. Notice what thoughts and feelings you have from this place and enjoy tranquility. Notice also, what your ego (and those other parts) have to say. As always, you can hear from them, acknowledge their needs, but remembering that they are simply parts of you and you won’t give them the power to hijack you.
If, like me, you’ve lived much of your life in doing mode and need to be accomplishing results to feel good about yourself, you may find the practice of relaxing to truly be a state of grace. From here, you will have extra for the people you love and for creating and pursuing new dreams.
