Our walk of life is not one of a made up perfection where it has to be the way one thinks it should be, whatever arises has to be accepted exactly as it is with seeing the perfection in the desire of wanting things different.
Being human means having desires and unless this is accepted exactly as it is without one needing things to be a certain way so one can get a better seat in heaven or move up on the angelic chain of command, life will seem to always have some kind of struggle associated with it. One of the common traits I notice when I talk to people about the Conditioned Mind is not truly accepting themselves exactly as they are, with a self imposed label of imperfect being applied . There are so many conditioned desires engrained in each of us and if they’re not accepted as they arise, one will live a struggled existence, needing those desires to be different than what they are.
Accept yourself in each moment desires and all and just watch as they arise. This isn’t a right or wrong thing, it’s just part of being human and it has to be accepted if there’s to be peace in one’s life. Today being Election Day in the US means there is opinionated energy all around and it will cause much suffering as there will be a desire for what’s voted for to play out the way one wants it. This wanting usually manifest as individual energy, but today it will be both individual and collective energy and if the results aren’t accepted as they are, it’s because one’s opinionated desires are in control and wants different results. Anything that happens has to be accepted as it is if one is to be at peace. This is made difficult because things occur and because one is human, an attached label is applied to what arises as being unpleasant, this makes one want whatever arises to be different and as long as one’s energy doesn’t accept their humanness as it is, peace will never be had.
