Life is in constant movement, in a forward motion towards continuous expansion. There is no “static-ness” in life and so if you are not willing to allow for a constant transformation, you become a source of resistance. The feeling of suffering within, is simply your resistance to the movement of life. You have to be malleable, flexible, in a state of complete surrender to life in order to keep pace with its expansion. The more spacious you are, the more easily you flow with life – if you are “contracted” (holding on to old patterns), you become a source of resistance and hence end up suffering.
Allow for an inner transformation
Life is expanding every moment, are you keeping pace with it? Expansion requires that you are willing to “transform” your conditioning, let go of past fears, dissolve “limiting” beliefs and embrace a change in mindset.
If you just stay in a place of “allowing”, in a deep surrender to life, you will feel a constant inner transformation happening in you. The moment you try to hold on, or become attached, to some parts of your reality, you become “contracted” and hence you no longer allow the inner transformation to happen. Don’t “try” to change yourself, just surrender to the movement of life (which is always fresh and new). True transformation can only take place when you allow the unconditioned consciousness to touch your past conditioning.
Every moment a new version of you is being created and life is pulling you towards this “new” place of being. You can feel the pull within you if you become sensitive to it. Most us of try our best to resist this pull because the mind is afraid of the “new”, and it wants to cling to the familiar. You must realize that unless you allow this transformation to keep taking place, you will become a source of resistance and life movement would just beat up against you.
Becoming a co-operative component in life
Are you being co-operative towards life or are you being a “hold out”? If you are holding onto past patterns, beliefs and old egoic structures, it’s a given that you are resisting the inner transformation that is constantly on. You don’t have to make any effort to “improve”, all you need to do is stay in state of complete allowance (just stop holding on to thoughts and emotions), and your consciousness will go through a transformation automatically.
When you try to “improve” yourself, you always come from your old patterns. How can the mind that created the problem, create the solution? True solutions can only come from a place beyond the old mind patterns – from the unconditioned consciousness. This process is not about self improvement but about “expansion”, to be a state of constant transformation. It’s a very dynamic process and it never stops. Be willing to be consumed by life, it’s taking you towards your own expansion.
