I had an epiphany of sorts today! It occurred while I was listening to a spoken word poem by blogger James Fielden. I was connected to James by another blogger, Michelle Marie. I realized while listening to James speak that I want so desperately to recover my health and put an end to the symptoms I’m experiencing, I’m not allowing myself to fully engage in the experience, and in so doing, likely perpetuating it. It’s like the sailor who wants the raging storm to end, The storm is going to end when it ends, not because he wants it to. Desperately wanting the storm to end adds to the level of stress.
I realized that if this was a pleasant experience I wouldn’t want it to end. Rather, I would want it to continue. I guess this is human nature!
It’s perfectly natural to want an unpleasant situation to cease, but we are best served by focusing our attention on the matter at hand and giving thanks for a prompt return to peace and calm … or in my case, good health.
I have been given this health condition to experience as part of my journey in the flow of life. No matter how badly I want it to come to closure, it will do so on its own good time. In the meantime, my role is to experience, learn, set my intention, allow things to unfold as they are meant to and share.
The sailor and me, we need to surrender!
Have an awesomely accepting!
