I think most of us have been taught that life is hard.  We must put our nose to the grindstone and push through to the end.  Hard work and struggle are rewarded.  Ease and fluidity are frowned upon by our culture.

I am not so sure of this paradigm anymore.  I am coming to believe that when we lower our head and push through we miss all the wonderful goodness and grace that is wanting to help us make it easy.  The worry, the stress, the endless complaining don’t help.  Relaxing, relishing, enjoying do.  Life is suppose to feel good.  It is suppose to feel invigorating, enlivening and joyful.  Even the “hard” stuff can be made easier, if we let it.

Where in your life could it be easier?

Where would it feel better to relax?

Where could you let go of controlling the situation?

Where could you stop doing something that is unpleasant?

Where could you appreciate instead of complain?

As you look at your day, your family, your job, your life, remember: Let It Be Easy.

Relax into ease and let the flow of well being wrap its arms around you as you let go.  Allow it to be easier than you have been making it.

LET IT BE EASY.
