images… NOT take you down.

What you attach to becomes yours but what you detach from NEVER impacts you.

You have a choice everyday as to what you will allow to affect you. If something in your life is upsetting you, don’t fight it, let it pass through you. When you fight/resist something, you give it life and validity. But when you detach from it, you diffuse its energy and it no longer has such control over you.

Life gets hard when you carry burdens that you don’t need to carry. If you don’t want it in your life, don’t give it any attention. Learn to let it pass through you, don’t attach to it and you will disarm the situation completely and what was meant to be a full out drama, will just barely irritate you.

By yielding to the storm, a blade of grass will allow the storm to pass right through it, whereas the old, stubborn tree will be snapped in half if it does not yield to those winds. As in all negative situations, learn to let it pass through you and you will be the one left standing when the sun comes out again.

Life is too short to attach to every drama that comes your way. Don’t bother resisting the negativity, you will only succeed in feeding it. You want a better life? Learn to let things pass through you. Only accept the situations that you want to engage in and let the rest fall to the wayside.

.. it always does.

Nothing ever stays the same. It can’t. Our universe is in a constant state of flux. We evolve, the environment evolves and the planet evolves – even our solar system and thousands of others are constantly evolving. With all this evolution, nothing can stay the same – and thank God for that.

In this world, we live in a continual state of “maya” – the sanskrit term for “illusion.” We walk this earth, day-in and day-out living out a state of illusion. Nothing that we are experiencing is actually real – although it seems very real for obvious reasons. You have to live “in this world”, but maya teaches us that we should not be “of this world.” We should never get caught up in the daily dramas of life. Buying into your drama makes it very real for you (in fact, more real then it needs to be). 

If you can remember that at the end of the day, all is just an illusion and that life is not about winning or losing but how you play the game, then it is easier to not attach to your perceived hardships. When you are going through a hard time, it is critical to remember that “this too shall pass.” Nothing in your life has power over you unless you give it. Giving into your pain, your conflicts, your suffering, your dashed hopes and dreams only brings you to one place – down. Don’t attach to your perceived hardships, let them simply “pass through you.” If you do not attach (or identify) with them they will not be yours and they will not linger and haunt you.

Life is too short to keep trying to get back up. If you don’t allow yourself to continually spiral downward, the path back up to the top will be much easier. If you are unhappy about anything going on in your life right now, stick around – the sun always has to come back out again after the rain. Remember this too shall pass.
