Descend to Rise

It’s a good practice to get out of your comfort zone and see that the world doesn’t work how you think it does. Even if you never get out of your comfort zone, change will come in some form or another- in the sign of stress, angst, etc. It’s in your biology to go with the change and with that comes the modesty about your weaknesses.

I say ‘weakness’ not as something bad, but as something that teaches you how far your limit has been set to protect you. There’s a childishly loving intention behind your weaknesses- to save yourself from a burden of any kind. Even when you’re being unproductive about a task you ‘should’ do, look deep within and see it’s to save yourself from doing something that causes stress of a sort. Instead of seeing our laziness as…well…laziness, if we switch to see it as “avoidance with an intention to protect me from stress”, it can help you to gain more control.

You use intention to save yourself from the pain of being spread thin until you disappear- instead of an activity that brings joy and abundance to you. Intentions aside, we do not like acknowledging our weaknesses as Acknowledgment of weakness IS the opposite of weakness- and weakness is a comfort.

In order to rise up, we need to go down and see what we attached ourselves to that we need to let go of, for a lighter flight to greatness.

What aren’t you typically aware of that is pulling you down? (And no, not that thing you’ve been aware of already! Go beyond or at least, add more nuance to that awareness)

(P.S I am no guru, I am a millennial who barely has her shit together, but she’s learning :))

    Thank you for sharing this.

    While you say you’re no guru, you sharing this with us clearly indicates that you have innate guru-ness :).

    All good wishes,

    You know why people are stuck in their comfort zone? Because they are “sleeping” while living the “dream”. Weakness isn’t bad, it’s actually a strength and you are so right on all your points. You may not be a guru, but intelligent you are…..hmmmm. that was more of a Yoda from Start Wars. (From the desk of the Joker)

      I know. I need to make it a practice to think this way more often instead of just leaving the wisdom in the back of my head (where most of my lessons are kept, almost never coming back to help me lol)

Please write! :'(
