This walk we take through life has curves, cliffs, mountains, snow, ice, you name it your mind can put you in a dangerous place. These are the things that we run into in our minds. I love the saying that turmoil is the price of admission for a beautiful life. We all have something to learn from our pain. I don’t like pain any more than you do, but we can work through it.
I remember a scene in Rocky II when Rocky is fighting Apollo Creed. Rocky takes punch after brutal punch, knocked downtime and time again. Rocky stumbles back to his corner face swollen, bleeding seemingly out of steam, and Rocky tells Mickey, “I ain’t going down no more.” He finds his strength out of being beaten down, hit again and again. The power to go on. Not to quit.
The point is if you’re getting your ass kicked by life, it’s time to say “I ain’t going down no more.”
Okay, I hear everyone saying sure easier said than done. You have to ask yourself if you’re saying that “Have I had enough yet?” Say it, say it NOW! Tell the enemy to get out of your head, you ain’t going down no more.
The first thing you have to come to terms with is that enough is enough. NO matter the pain or turmoil in your head. Get to a place in your mind where you can make quite the spirit. The only way I can tell you to do it meditate. You can find free guided meditations on YouTube, put on some headphones on close your eyes, and listen. Feel yourself relaxing. If you have to play it ten times before you begin to feel something, do it.
Here is the trouble you may run into. We’re all I WANT IT NOW people. So what happens is people quit. They stop just at the moment change is going to happen. Successful people will tell you why they’re successful is they’re willing to take one more step than you are. You can’t quit. The enemy will fight you tooth and nail to beat you. Don’t live in your head live in your soul. Your leader will jack you up. Your soul is where love, abundance, and relief live.
Your head will trick you and leave you in a terrible place. Open up your heart, your soul to find real peace. You can do this during meditation, connecting with God, the universe, Devine source, or a higher power. When you join with whom I call God during meditation, a whole new world opens up, “I ain’t going down no more.”
See yourself in meditation, happy, abundant, and living the life dreams are made of. It can happen. Don’t quit too soon. There is NO quick fix. You have to own the pain when you do you hold the world. “Own that Shit”–Harley Quinn. Peace will come during meditation if it takes a little time it will. Let your mind go to God, divine source, you will find peace to hold onto.
Don’t tell yourself it’s too much. NOTHING is too much. Here is a terrible example of pain, the loss of a child. The awful sad truth is life will go on no matter how much we don’t want it to at that moment. Pain is a pain, is a pain. The loss of someone is the most unbelievable pain we can experience. Yet the sun will come up tomorrow. You can’t stop fighting to get out of your tricky situation. You can’t lose faith when there is nothing to hold onto but faith. The hope of change may be all you have right now, take it, own it. Peace is coming, I promise it is.
This is why you have to connect to a Devine source. Sometime’s there is no real answer, especially when we lose something as precious as a loved one. I use this extreme because most problems pale in comparison. If you’re reading this and you have lost a loved one my heart goes out to you. The loss is painful, but it will pass even when you believe it won’t, it will. God be with you.
For most problems, when we’re in the middle of them, the pain can be daunting. So massive we can’t see a way out. I have very recently gone through this. My life is turned upside down, finances are in turmoil, family, the list goes on. The enemy has taken my joy on many days, where I was just a mess. Bulldozing my way through has been a struggle. I have been knocked down time and time again in my own head. It’s not real, it’s the enemy who will try at all costs to keep you down. DO NOT LISTEN!!!
We all hear change is not easy. No, it’s not, but you can do it! I have had days where it’s so black in my head, indeed a dark place no human wants to go.
Never give up. I don’t care how much you think you can’t, I am living proof you can. Get off the canvas, stand up, and fight. You have it in you. I know it in my heart.
