[singlepic id=105 w=320 h=240 float=left]Awakening is a process, a journey with a road that reaches behind and before us.
Awakening allows for: eyes that open wider, ears that hear more clearly, a mind that broadens and expands to include more and exclude less, and a heart that both widens and opens.
Awakening is an imperfect course, one with jagged edges that can pierce the smoothness of our contentment and explode the inner space of our reality.
Awakening requires courage, perseverance, commitment and practice:
Courage to face the day, to see both how far we’ve come and how far we have yet to go
Perseverance to show up, shift and move forward while honoring the missteps
Patience to ride the currentsâ‚¬â€the updrafts and the troughs
Commitment to a practice even in the stuck times
Awakening is allowing our humanness to be touched by our spirit and be shaped by it. It is then that resistance can fall away and we can open into the ease of soul, and let it lead the way.
