I completely admit that I often fluctuate between periods of balanced certainty and clueless disharmony.
What is interesting to note, though, is that many of our modern spiritual teachers are not immune to this very human experience, no matter their decades of sharing valuable knowledge with us.
Just recently, I viewed a most honest conversation between Lilou Macé and Sonia Choquette posted on YouTube (see link below this blog post). Sonia had just experienced what I call the Perfect Storm. This is when three events or more converge on your life to completely offer you the opportunity to dig deep, release, surrender, and shift your mindset by opening your loving Heart. We can relate to some or all of her particularities, but more importantly, we have compassion for her, because we have walked in her shoes. Ironically, or not, it appears that very few of us have immunity when it comes to Life's process of riding the flow above the wave or being overwhelmed by it when we sink within its turbulent waters.
The same can be said for another conversation I listened to between Eckhart Tolle and Neil Donald Walsch on Tolle's TV website. Neil was very direct with his comments and questions to both the audience listening and Eckhart himself. He wanted to know how to "live in the flow of energy" and rid himself of his egoistic patterns. He was completely insistent that he was not asking for the benefit of others listening, but for himself only. I could both relate to and hear the desperate frustration in his angry outbursts. To be so close and yet often, outside of the peaceful way of being, can be very trying, especially for the scribe/ author of "Conversations with God".
In closing, like the wave, we are given numerous opportunities to test our ability to balance our energy and connect with the feeling of the flow. I think Robert Young has it right when he says, " If you concentrate on walking, you do not walk to well".
In other words, let go and let God.
