Wednesday Wisdom - June 12

Today’s #ninewednesdaywisdom is from @anipemachodron :

“…Maybe the only enemy is that we don’t like the way reality is now and therefore wish it would go away fast. But what we find …. is that nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. If we run a hundred miles an hour to the other end of the continent in order to get away from the obstacle, we find the very same problem waiting for us when we arrive. It just keeps returning with new names, forms, manifestations until we learn whatever it has to teach us about where we are separating ourselves from reality, how we are pulling back instead of opening up, closing down instead of allowing ourselves to experience fully whatever we encounter, without hesitating or retreating into ourselves.”

If you keep finding yourself in recurring patterns that don’t work for you and are causing pain and stress, ask yourself: .
▪️ What can I learn from this situation RIGHT NOW?
▪️ What is the message?
▪️ Am I taking something personally?
▪️ Am I making assumptions?
▪️ Can I choose to accept, react to or change something?
▪️ What can I be more grateful for?
