However confused the scene of our life appears, however torn we may be who now do face that scene, it can be faced, and we can go on to be whole. ~Muriel Rukeyser
Life often hands us difficult times to work our way through. These transitions in our lives can sometimes leave us wondering “why me”, and we may become highly resistant to the changes we must go through. I have written before about the benefits of being in integrity with who we are. Integrity means whole, and is built upon the foundation of courage. It often takes courage to face adversity in our lives, to face our fears and take the steps forward that we need to take.
The more confident we are in our values and our priorities, the easier it is to face the confusion of our lives when they happen upon us.
I think the situations and relationships we find ourselves in often require work, sometimes hard work, but when we stop resisting and begin focusing on what is really true about the situation, we move forward with ease. It is still work, but we are peaceful and calmly taking each step as it comes our way.
How do we become whole? By knowing who we are – our needs, our values, our priorities, and becoming one with the flow of the universe; always seeking enlightenment and connection with our fellow (wo)man; sharing the essence of who we are. The Tao tells us that by stilling our mind, opening our hearts and surrendering our worries to the Universe, all things become easier. Scarcity thoughts are eliminated, and we are able to live an inspired life. We have become whole.
