What is your greatest struggle?
Ahhhh, I love this question.
I seem to have a different struggle every day. What I know is that I used to push my struggles away and now I embrace them as part of my daily spiritual practice.
I used to engage in thinking that went like “once I do such and such, then my life will be good or complete or then I will “get there” and “be done”.
What I have come to realize is that this isn’t actually the way life unfolds. I think it was Gilda Radner who said “there is always something”. So, yes, there is always something, there is always a struggle and isn’t that wonderful! I never have to go looking for more personal growth projects, they just show up 🙂 For me it is also about acknowledging what I call “the mucky mess of life”, the full catastrophe living as Jon Kabat Zinn calls it. My experience is that it is through this lovely “slime” that wonderful things emerge.
It feels very one dimensional to live a life that pushes away chaos. I love the word “chaordic”. For me it brings chaos into harmony!
peace, namaste & hippy love for generations!
