Sometimes you feel that Life, as it appears, is too much for you. I understand how you feel, yet the fear conclusions you come to are amiss.
Your body and mind may suffer, may suffer greatly, yet it is your mind that keeps your suffering lively. Such a delicate sensitive picture your mind paints of you. All the while, the Truth is that you, the indelible you, is Eternal. What you feel you go through in the world, impinges upon your soul not a whit. What you feel you go through in the world is false support for what is fallacy in the first place.
Life does make you stretch. At the same time, it is you who identify yourself as in need. It is you who designate yourself as strong or weak. It is you who go on and on about how difficult your life appears to be. If you think your life is miserable, you are as miserable as you say you are. Your own thoughts victimize you. Don’t be in a hurry to adopt the popular world views and excuses and make them your own. How you perceive is all temporary stuff.
In general, will you admit that your life is not intolerable? Your life is pretty good, as a matter of fact. To complain is a common choice and not worth the merit you give it and attach to your Life. Come from a broader spectrum.
It is understood what you mean when you say Life is too much for you right now. You call out: “World, I need a break.”
If your mind would take a rest from its over-hyperactivity, of course, you would be more calm. Instead, you tend to wind yourself up. You tell yourself intense stories. Beloveds, what is too much for you is the weight you put on your activity in Life. Keep telling yourself that Life is too much for you right now, and chances are good that you will convince yourself that you are stretched beyond your endurance. Believing that you are stretched beyond endurance hinders you from getting out of a maze that you sequestered yourself into in the first place.
The tigers of thought that pursue you are your multiple fear thoughts. The panic you feel feels true, yet it is based on elements of untruth, and so you panic on false notions. Slow down. Don’t be so fast to attribute fear to your Life. You do get through whatever Life holds for you, and you will continue to do so.
Of course, you believe totally in the fears of the world. Change your mind about the enormity of imbalance between goodness and fear, this enormity of imbalance you foist on yourself.
Attribute yourself now to the thought that Life and you are amenable. Now you are circumspect with Life. You are on speaking terms with Life.
When you are quick to cry wolf, instead, shed great Light on your view of Life. Instruct yourself that you are not going to deplore Life any longer. Look beyond whatever fear thoughts you may have accumulated. You can, so to speak, get over Life and reconcile with it. It is not necessary that you stay knee-deep in the mire of Life that you, yourself, put yourself through.
No, My dears, keep up with Life. Keep up-do-date. Fear thoughts do not have to push away all the promising thoughts that desire to be cultured right in front of you. Opportune thoughts would be right in front of you were they not ousted by all those other habits of thought that may have consumed you.
There is no failing. Failing is just an idea. Come, join with Me. Let Us march together across the Universe.
