Today is easy so far so yes is easy. Ask me when it’s all going sideways! My experience is that verbalising myself into an unconditional state doesn’t work; it must be felt. Embodiment and some mindful practice helps. Also an acceptance that there are some days where I’m just going to say “why me” and curl into a ball of denial.
Probably if I had a perspective that what I have is enough and I don’t really need more. This would help me say yes to my life today. I am truly happy where I am today, but also at times keep wanting things I don’t have.
Hmm – I keep waffling on the interpretation of this question.
To accept life and give an unconditional yes exactly as my life is today, well I could only give that unconditional yes, if I felt and understood that I didn’t have the power to change things that I feel may need to be changed.
But if the question indicates accepting the life I am living and working toward those changes, then I could give an unconditional yes.
A yes to:
-having the courage to change the things I can
– having the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
– the wisdom to know the difference
I feel help from other people, and especially today I was given a deep help from a special fellow.
Today this is my way to say yes to my life as it is.
Saying YES now through humility, acceptance and Faith.
No help needed.
To let go of all the baggage I’m carrying around with me.
Living in the moment. I am still learning how.
My spirit does not have the strength to give an answer. It feels like a very hard question today, one that challenges me in this time of unease.
Thanks for your honest answer, Kalliope, and warm wishes to you. Give yourself a hug!💕💕
Thank you, Mica. Your words are a blessing.
More hugs, Kalliope!
-Letting go of trying to control things I can’t control.
-Greater appreciation for things I take for granted- like being able to walk. I’ve been thinking about this more recently as an acquaintance of mine was recently hit by a car while trying to change a tire on the side of the freeway. He suffered severe injury and as a result, needed to have a leg amputated. In a split second he lost that ability to walk and his life changed forever.
I’m sorry for your friend, Lauryn. It used to be people would move over or slow down. We could all be a little more cautious.
What has helped me is being “anchored” to the things that give peace and connection to God. For me this is QiGong, being outside gardening or walking, taking a deep breath, silencing the mind (ego).
Many of the audiobooks I have been “finding” i.e. you find the right things at the right time have helped me to rest in knowing that any feeling or problem, I can lay at the feet of my guru, Jesus. His Sacred Heart, the filling of the Holy Spirit, and trusting that my inner wisdom is fed by Truth. We have had much, lost much, and this walk on earth continues. When I say “yes” to God, to being “here now” the peace that passes all understanding is real, and my heart is full of joy. Thanks be to God.
Nothing is as it seems. So saying “yes” to me means contentment and with that comes possibilities I might not have noticed before due to resistance or discontentedness with what is. Being grateful for where I’m at at this stage in my life is the best way to say “yes” and grow from here.
Quite simply nothing. We are all made of love which is already limitless and perfect and being mindful of that is our daily challenge.
