The idea that there’s something wrong with you that you need to fix through your spirituality, self help, inner child work, somatic work, or even on your self love path - is the reason you feel like you never ‘get’ anywhere with your practices.
The idea that happiness and fulfillment are going to come to you AFTER you have ‘healed all your trauma’, after you have realized perfect self love, after you have understood what all your pain is telling you and exactly how to ‘align’ with reality - is the reason you feel like you never ‘get’ anywhere with your practices.
The reality is - yes, normal is painful. We have a lot of conditioning and stories built up around ourselves and reality that are leading us to live lives of delusion and therefore more pain.
Happiness is not something that’s only available ‘over there’ once all the healing is done.
In fact, nothing at all needs to change in order for you to feel better.
There is a deep paradox in this self love work, that I hope to help you really grasp today. This is the foundation that will allow you to enjoy your life journey - that will never be done - rather than constantly seeking the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow that doesn’t exist.
Joy is here now. Only ever here now. It can and does co-exist with all your trauma, misperceptions, fears and anything else you think is ‘wrong’ with you. How you approach what you think is ‘wrong’ with you is the KEY to realizing this.
There’s nothing wrong with you. Never has been. Let’s look at WHY this is so so so massively important to grasp, and how we can start to shift from the ‘goal’ orientated life into the HUMAN orientated life.
