An inner dialogue (Part 1)
Recently it has become a habit to not sit still with the questions that keep nagging at me. Instead, I write them down… and wait. Wait until something opens up and connects me with a stream of energy and words. Words that mostly pinpoint the issue and often move me to tears. Now I’d like to share some highlights of this inner dialogue with you.
Q: How can I become happy?
A: Realize happiness as the ground of your Being. Don’t bury yourself in wavering and whining. Everything is prepared, it could not be more beautiful. Your happiness is to be in contact with yourself, to behold the purest light of your soul. Forgive yourself for losing sight of your own light. See the beauty, grace, fortitude in there, too. You are in the middle of a critical phase. The words come steady, but not always they can reach you. It all has to be reviewed in order to fall into place. You cannot do it, neither can you prevent it from happening. You can only decide whether you keep resisting – and hence suffer. Or surrender. In the very moment you let yourself go, your seeking and your finding, your longing and your salvation become one. Don’t consume all your lives in the battle against yourself. Allow yourself to forgive. Allow yourself to receive mercy. Allow yourself to be happy, to be just the way you are.
