A recurring theme in my meditation has been "______ the process." That blank space is often filled in with different words like enjoy, honor, appreciate, respect, pursue, settle into, etc. If I am being honest, last month was extremely difficult for me. So I am not surprised that my way of coping has been to literally navigate my way around the hard times by processing and swallowing the hardest trials and tribulations that I have faced in a very long time. Be okay with the process came up yesterday at about seven in the morning. I mean, of course, it would, right? I am in beautiful Joshua Tree, reflecting, bonding with sister-friends, eating clean, sunbathing, and being present. It makes sense that the Universe would smack me with "Alex, be OK. It'll all be OK if you let it." I am not sure that I am ready to be okay and accepting of this particular season, but I must eventually, if I want change to come. If I want peace to come.
Life isn't straight forward. That is what I am learning the older I get it. Life is complicated, humans are intense, dynamic, and confusing, relationships are complex and ever changing. Existing and being is all about processing and shifting.
Take your time with the process.
Show up for yourself in the process.
Find peace in the process.
There's no need to rush the process.
We all go through things. Process your process how you see fit.
