Struggle…

Humans seem to think there is no way to go through life without experiencing struggle…

And for most, that seems to be true.

Something I am exploring at the moment, is just how much struggle is simply man-made…

We can get addicted to the story of our struggle…

It can make people feel like they have something to say as they tell their story of struggle…

It usually ends up in self-pity as people buy into their story of struggle…

They tell themselves that they had done all they could but the struggle continued…

they claim not to want to struggle but continue to edify and glorify struggle…

Yep, I can be guilty of all these things, hence the fact I find myself considering it…

What if struggle was optional?

Now, we all know that hustle or hard work is a regular part of getting what we want…

But struggle? Does that have to be?

From my experience, struggle is simply hard work laced with negative emotions and a story of how terrible and difficult it all is…

Hard work plus negative emotion and feelings lead to struggle.

Hard work alone would just be hard work.

In this community of spiritual mavericks and overcomers, we are not scared of hard work…

We work Hard and there ain’t no problem with that…

But struggle?

Neh, we no longer have to buy into that.

I, for one, am choosing to look any negativity in the eye and handle it without making it become my storyline.

I for one, feel pretty privileged to do the work that I do and I know that even if I had a billion dollars sitting around in my bank account, I would still do this…

So this is not struggle, this is AMAZING!

And honey, I know I work harder than most people and when I mix it up with all the other elements of life, i could have a story of struggle but you know what?!  I am blessed so no, it is not a struggle.

Now you might listen to that and think ‘Easy for you, rosemary, you don’t have to go to my job and do what i do.  You don’t have to come home to a partner that makes me feel terrible or to no one at all.  Easy for you to say that, Rosemary, your life is perfect whereas I am just about getting by etc etc’

And that would be true, in some ways…

But what if you took all the negative emotion out of that story of yours…

And realised that you are using energy to maintain the story and that you do have the option to use that same energy to create a different story just like I did.

I got tired of my story and put myself in new environments so that I could learn to create a more empowering story…

And I did it at the lowest point in my story…

I had no money…

Hated my job

Had 3 children to look after…

The hubby was not making enough to cover expenses…

Extended family was not talking to me because I could not give them money…

And lets not go into all the past story beyond that, that had led me to this low point in my life…

And despite that, I KNEW that if I wanted to escape struggle and create a new life, then it was on me to find a new way.

As much as Papa loved me, I had free will.

So I could wallow in struggle if I wanted to…

Or I could choose a different way.

I chose a different way…

I looked around me and noticed that most of my friends had a story of struggle…

Even the people I looked up to spiritually, thought struggle was just a normal way of life…

And I decided that that was NOT what i read in my holy book so I was going to do something different…

And I did.

I don’t say this as some kind of ‘big up on myself’ thing…

I say it because I hear your story of struggle…

You tell me of how much debt you are in and how that means you cannot do what you want to do…

WEll, if I had not gone through it and chosen to still do what I wanted then I would buy into that…

You tell me of how little time you have because you have so many demands…

If I had not gone through that, I would buy into it too…

You tell me this story and that story and then you also tell me how this person or that person did not come through for you or how you have been praying forever and somehow, nothing ever seems to work for you…

And if you are a client, I tell you to stop pitying yourself and rise above…

If you are not a client, I simply allow you to go your way because well, you did not really ask for support so who am I to impose myself on your free will…

But honey, you need to understand that struggle really is optional.

You could be going through hell and still choose not to struggle.

Yes, you will work your socks off to get out of hell but you do not have to struggle…

DO YOU SEE WHAT I AM SAYING?

It is the story you give your hard work that causes you to struggle and the struggle eats at your energy so then you have less energy available to do the hard work and so then you stay trapped in your ‘struggle’ because you are not doing the work.

CAN YOU SEE?

I am not sure if I am being all that clear but I am trying…

Nothing external to you can stop you.

It is the story you give it that stops you

It is your perception that stops you

Stop with the negative perceptions

Handle your negative emotions

Turn your face to your vision and do the work

DROP THE SAD STORY!

Yes, it happened but it no longer needs to control you.

PUT YOURSELF IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY POSSIBILITY
