Stop struggling. Start striving

When we look for news, we read newspapers or watch newsshows. I tell you, there is no news in them. All what They say can be reduced to two sentences: Part of the World is struggling, and part of the World is striving.Struggling and striving. Besides these two, there is no other place to be. But the interesting is that both are the same activity. The only difference is that struggling is motivated by fear, and striving is motivated by enthusiasm.

Struggling and striving reflect how everything work in Nature. Every being is growing or decaying. Actually, everything is growing and decaying at the same time. Two objects can't occupy the same space at the same time. So, if something is growing, something has to decay, to feed or open space for the other to grow. If some part of you is growing, some part of you has to die.

Meditation is basically voluntary death. We allow Mother Hen Life to break our shell from outside. Voluntarily, we let the shell die. The fears, the prejudices, breaking down. And, then, the infinite skies.

All we have to realize is that the shell is not even there, it's self-hypnosis. Our prison has been built by ourselves. But, also, we are the mother hen, and we are the unborn phoenix. So, all we have to do is to sit on the egg that we are, and transform ourselves with the warmth of our hearts. This is the way we can bring up the freedom we were given before we were even born. Every moment.

This is it.
