'What if a fresh experience, from inside of us, is always available?'
In this modern life, the pressure to 'self-improve' initially appears innocent and innocuous. But with this relentless drive to improve, we can mistakenly fall into assuming that we're inadequate; that we're somehow lacking.
When we spend time and energy harshly judging and comparing ourselves to others, life indeed is a struggle; resulting in us striving, rather than thriving ...
In moments of stillness, however, there's a deeper knowing which arises from our innate intelligence, resilience. Wellbeing is always there waiting for us.
In our quieter, more settled moments, we're able to glimpse a recognition of what really matters. It's not a 'clever' thing, but instead usually a softer realisation; a recognition of something we'd long lost sight of.
When we pursue life only with our intellect, wellbeing - like a rare butterfly, appears to fly away. But when our personal thinking settles, so too does the butterfly.
Our thoughts continue to come in all shapes and sizes; some being more 'sticky' than others. And when we see that what and how we think is simply a perfect reflection of the current beliefs we hold about how life works and our perception of who we think we are - we can review everything.
The good news is that with being human comes the free will to choose which thoughts and beliefs to pay attention to; those that we decide aren't accurate, can then then drop away.
In simple terms, with fresh thinking, comes a refreshing experience.
As our unnecessary or outdated (sticky) thinking drops away, we're left with our innate wellbeing; a well-spring for hope, creativity, courage, kindness ... and with that, resilience.
