Remember the time when you felt down? The time when it felt like nothing is working and everything seemed to be so hard and confusing? Yup, I can hear you, my friend:) I`ve been there too, for many times in my life:)
But you know what?
It is in precisely then when our faith is being tested and regardless how big the difficulty of that situation, we should never never lose our faith.
Actually, in those moments, please find your way back home. You can do it.
When we face hardship and challenges, it`s not so much about the hardship in itself as it is about the “picture” that our mind creates of that situation. I myself have experienced this, so believe me I know what I am saying:)
As human beings, we always find a way to overcome things, and we always find a way to figure it out but it`s the image that our mind projects to us about our circumstances that makes us feel small, fearful or panicked. It`s really all about that image.
There is also another reason why we feel helpless: it`s because we have left our “home” and when I say home I don’t mean your physical home. No. When I say home, I mean your place within.
Because of the image that your mind projects back to you, you feel small, as I have said before, and because you feel small you need to do something, to come up with a way to “solve” whatever problem you may be facing. Well, this literally means going on a trip where your only companion is your mind; your soul is left behind. It`s like when you have two best buddies and you take one of them and go for a trip while the other remains at home (I do mean the physical home here:)
Our mind, if not disciplined, can take us wherever it wants and this creates anxiousness, it creates a miss-balance between the correlation soul-mind-body because the mind is weak without the soul`s power. This is yet another reason why you feel scared or helpless. But when both our soul and mind are united and work together as one for you, fully engaged… My God! Can you imagine what kind of freedom you can experience? What kind of power and self-expression? Not to mention about the amazing results you`ll achieve:)
We have a trinity within ourselves and should one of the parts miss then we wouldn’t be having a trinity anymore, would we?
So, what you can do is to find your way back home, find your way back to that place that is within and full of peace, clarity, wisdom, balance, love, harmony.
Whenever your mind goes astray – and I know it`s just what our mind does, isn’t it? – go back. Return “home”, return to yourself. You can do that by noticing the small blessings around you, and feel gratitude for them. You can do that by admiring the wonderful nature around you; by engaging into something that you love to do:)
This will always – without fail – take you back home, and you`ll feel joy again, you`ll feel love, you`ll feel excitement and happiness for being alive:)
This I can promise you:)
