Have you misidentified calm and ease with being bored?
When things are easy, do you get bored?
Do you subconsciously create a lot of stress or drama because you're afraid of having space to choose whatever you'd like?
The first time I had ease in my life, I thought I was so bored!
As it turns out, I actually was just experiencing the space to choose for the first time. I had so much time on my hands - everything became choice! And I started to worry.. this is too easy.. I'm bored.
Ease can be many different things. It can mean you have a flight where everything goes right, or it can mean a commute that is quick and easy. It can mean taking your car to the mechanic and it takes less time than the predicted. Mostly, it means letting go of the upset when things don't turn out the way we wanted them to.
Ease is not exciting. There's not a lot of trauma and drama. There's not a lot of feeling or emotion, either. Ease is not fast paced or stressful. Ease means things get done much quicker, though, and you may not know what to do with yourself!
Ease means you've stopped seeing everything as a problem to be fixed. Ease means allowing yourself time and space and you're not impossibly busy all the time. At least, these are my very interesting points of view about ease ;)
What could ease mean to you? Are you willing to have that in your life? Are you willing to let go of needing things to be exciting all the time in order to let things literally get easier for you? Are you willing to experience boredom? Are you willing to move past the boredom and truly choose, in every moment, what you would like to do, be, and have, in your life and for yourself?
I wonder what you could create if you let things be easy? I dare ya - give it a try! And let me know how it goes. Thank you, beautiful alchemists, for being willing to experiment in this fantastic thing we call life!
