Greetings from all of us here at Serenity Now.
Happy New Year!
I (Brooke) have never been so ready for a new year in all of my life, and I bet I am not alone.
Reflecting back on 2020 I could feel the anxiety increase. I had so many questions; how much longer is this insanity going to continue, what will our world look like once it’s all over, and many others. I noticed that I was letting the fear override the faith.
I just made a conscious decision to center and let the truth in. There is a spiritual teacher that I have connected t
o for many years and I went through some of his material. The very first page I picked up contained these words that he had given as an answer to an audience member’s question many years ago. Of course it felt like he was directly talking to me.
He said: “It is very simple. When you come up to the limit of what your personality can do, there must be another side to that limit. It means therefore you are, for the first time, in the place where you can really access the other side. That place where you can access the unknown. If there is a wall, and you are still ten feet away from it, there is no way for you to climb it. But if you have bumped your nose on the wall, you are in exactly the right spot to climb it. You are at the threshold of something new. Appreciate where you are, and be willing to abide in this not knowing place with peace.”
I allowed these words to wash over me and to take away the fear, and I wanted to share them with you.
