You may not be able to change the way things are right now, but you can live in a way that lets your love shine through by just being with the task at hand and doing what’s in front of you.
To love life, one must love the task at hand. The task at hand is what is happening right now. It’s the only place that life can truly be lived. It’s the only place that your love can shine through. If you don’t love the task at hand, how can your love shine through? Life can never be better then it is right now, because right now is the task at hand. Only the Conditioned Mind makes you think this isn’t so. Life is always lived with what here’s now because what’s here now is the task at hand. You can wish for things to be different, but it’s your life that is being wished away. So do what is in front of you now, and let your love shine through.
Our path is laid before us to do the best we can with the tools we have, but there needs to be a clear path to let our love shine through; it’s very easy to veer off the path if there isn’t vigilance. There are many diversions that will try and knock one off it. It’s like our life is an obstacle course and the obstacles are in place to divert us from the task at hand, from our present, which is the Here and Now. There is only one present, one task, and one life, but there are many many obstacles. One of the main obstacles is the conditioning of wanting things different. The mind tells you, if the task at hand was different than life would be better, but this is a lie. Things are always the best they can be right now, because the present is where life happens. So if you can’t change the way that things are right now, you can at least live in a way that lets your love shine through. So just do the task at hand because it’s life as it is right now and be with whatever it is that life gives you that lets your love shine through.
