In his book, A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle says, “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.“
In other words, what’s happening to you in this exact moment is happening because it is happening. You’ve evolved to this exact point in time. This experience is a culmination of your thinking, of your feeling, and it is now manifesting before your very eyes.
So, how are you to approach such a moment?
Embrace it because this the experience you need to grow, to create, to express yourself fully, and to become whole.
How you approach this moment depends on only you. You have the power to make it work for you…or against you. It’s your choice. It’s always been your choice.
Fighting the experience won’t make it go away. Resistance is like a virus — it comes back stronger than ever, until you inoculate it by embracing and facing the experience — by opening up to it and asking it what it has to teach you so that you can start making new (and more informed) choices.
A “new earth” starts with a “new mind.”
What kind of world are you creating for yourself? What kind of world would you like to create?
