And how to return to the Lightness.

The Heaviness is the weight of all your thoughts.

If Life feels heavy right now, it is because the Heaviness is the weight of all your thoughts.

So you no longer see it as it is.

You see it as a thought.

Your own thought.

Of how you think you want it to be.

Of how you think it should be.

Of how you think it needs to be.

Yet Life just is.

And you just are.

And you are here.

Right here.

Exactly where you need to be.

Exactly where you want to be too.

Because where you are is at the Understanding.

Because it always begins from the Understanding.

To understand how Life just is.

Because when you understand, you no longer need to think about it.

Because you understand.

So you are no longer in a thought.

You are no longer thinking.

You are simply being.

Being here.

Because you have returned.

Returned from all of your thoughts.

To the Lightness.

The Lightness of Being.

From the Heaviness of Thinking.

So you can see again.

See how Life just is.

And what this means.

For you.

And your life too.

So let’s begin.

Begin from the Understanding.

Because it always begins from the Understanding.

Because one Moment of Understanding can change your entire life.

From what you thought it was.

To what it simply is.

From who you thought you were.

To who you simply are.

1. Life isn’t doing anything to you.

Life isn’t doing anything to you.

Because Life just is.

It is your own thoughts that make you think Life is doing anything to you.

Which is why every thought is learned.

Every single one.

Because you always get to choose what your mind focuses on.

A thought.

Or, the Understanding.

The Understanding of how Life just is.

2. Life isn’t waiting.

Life isn’t waiting.

So why should you?

Because no matter what you do, Life goes on.

Life doesn’t wait for anyone because Life already knows you are someone.

Which is why you have been given your life too.

You simply learned to think you need to wait.

Wait for someone.

Wait for something.

Wait for a sign.

Here is your sign: LIFE ISN’T WAITING. SO WHY SHOULD YOU?

3. Life is one continuous flow.

Life is one continuous flow.

Which is why Spring never arrives after Summer.

And Winter never returns before Fall.

Because Life is one continuous flow.

Your life is one continuous flow.

A continuous flow of experiences.

To learn from, to grow from, to return from.

And when you are responsible for your own actions, there can be no regrets, no redos, no remorse.

Because you understand.

You understand how we are all experiencing who we are for the first time.

You are experiencing who you are for the first time too.

And you are allowed to live in the Understanding.

The Understanding of how We Are All Still Learning.

They are still learning.

And so are you.

4. Life isn’t here to break you.

Life isn’t here to break you.

Because you are not broken.

You can never be broken.

The only thing that needs to be broken is the old patterns of thought that make you think you are broken.

Damaged.

You’re not.

Because you are not a thought.

You just are.

And you are not broken.

You simply learned to think this thought about you.

And you simply haven’t learned yet everything your mind can also do.

Which is why your mind can also release this thought.

Your own mind can release this thought you learned to think about you.

From the Understanding.

The Understanding of how you are not a thought.

You simply are.

And you are enough.

You have always been enough.

Simply being you.

5. Life doesn’t hold grudges. Life doesn’t keep score.

Life doesn’t hold grudges.

Life doesn’t keep score.

When you understand how it is your own thoughts that are keeping you in the Anger and the Blame, the Guilt and the Shame, everything changes.

Because you understand how it is simply a habit your mind learned how to do.

To think these thoughts about you.

Which make you think anyone is doing anything to you too.

And anything learned can be unlearned and relearned.

Anything.

Everything learned can be unlearned and relearned.

Everything.

Which is why your mind can also learn a new daily practice.

To unlearn this old pattern of thinking that keeps blaming you, shaming you and making you feel the sadness and loneliness too.

And relearn a new daily practice of releasing.

Releasing these thoughts you learned to think about you.

From the Understanding.

Because it always begins from the Understanding.

Because when you understand, your mind is settled.

So you no longer need to think about it.

Because you understand.

And when you understand how you are the master of your own mind, you no longer allow your thoughts to master you.

Because you understand everything your mind can also do.

When the thoughts start to arrive too.

To release the Heaviness of the Thinking.

And return to the Lightness of Being.

Being who you are.

Not who you think you should be.
