I’ve been trying to move mountains for 20 years and frankly, I’m tired. Aren’t you tired too?
There are a million ways to travel from the beginning to the end of your life. Some trips are longer than others, some paths are more intense. It seems to me that of all of the lives that we could possibly experience, there is one path for each of us that is the most… true. There is a specific path, a certain series of conditions and decisions and circumstances, that will allow us to cultivate our best possible lives.
I can now see that as far as my health goes, I missed a turn, or a series of turns, somewhere along the way. This body, my body today, and my true body (me without the consequences of not eating well, using food to medicate, and learning then living a relatively sedentary lifestyle) are living miles apart. Today, my body is heavy. My muscles are tight, and my joints sometimes ache but, I know that this isn’t true for me. I know that this body is the result of a life lived out of alignment with who I really am.
My true self is strong, healthy, and vibrant.
I want my reality and my truth to be the same. I believe we all do. After spending all of this time fighting to move the mountain that lives in the gap between the two, suddenly I see how the old way of thinking has failed me. The old way is not working. In fact, it never works. We have to find a way to get back into alignment with our truth.
