We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are. Anais Nin

When our life is continually guided by conditioned beliefs, thoughts, and the fears of our past, it leaves no room to discover the peace and presence of our true nature.
“There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self. There is nothing to do about this, it is naturally present. This fragrance of peace, this spaciousness, it is the fragrance of your own being.”
So how do we begin to unravel and empty ourselves of what no longer serves us?
How do we learn to feel comfortable in uncertainty and embrace this still presence within?
For me, it was simply creating space to see how often my fears were dictating my daily choices. It was acknowledging my old beliefs about who I thought I was, and seeing how this was limiting my experiences in life. It was being patient as I let these go and allowed my true essence to awaken.
When we empty ourselves completely, we will find fullness.
