The biggest challenge to becoming a more conscious human being is that when we know better, we are called to do better.
Waking up is uncomfortable because we eventually have to stop bullsh*ting ourselves and others about every aspect our lives that is out of alignment with TRUTH & LOVE.
For each of us on this path, there comes a time when the truth becomes so obvious, so confronting, and so undeniable that we have to pay attention.
We start to recognise all the excuses we've been making, the ways we've been blaming people or circumstances for our unconscious behaviour, the unhealthy habits we've allowed to linger, the ways we give our power away to others - from our romantic partners, to our peers, the media and political leaders.
It is so easy to say we want to feel good, to be successful, to live an incredible life... but most of the time when these things aren't happening, it's because we are unwilling to get honest and fully SEE, FEEL, HEAR and KNOW the truth of what we are experiencing. We are unwilling to become fully conscious.
We say we want more good to enter, but we've got a list of conditions about how it has to unfold.
Like wanting to be fit but not wanting to put in the work.
Wanting self-love but being unwilling to embrace imperfections.
Wanting to create something new but only if it's a huge success.
Wanting a conscious relationship but bringing all of your most unconscious behaviours to your interactions with this person.
Wanting to be guided by the Universe but fighting the fact that it requires releasing personal control.
This fixed, narrow thinking is the biggest reason why so many of us feel like we are taking two steps forward, one step back with our growth.
We hit our own walls - our own conditions.
We come up against our own unwillingness to meet the whole truth. To be fully conscious.
It's a process. And it takes time.
Living with the willingness to see is the most powerful thing you can do to welcome breakthroughs into your life.
Let yourself see.
Seeing is freedom.
