Is It Easy…or Impossible?

A thing is either right there in front of me to accomplish (easy) or not even close to me (impossible).

Until I observed this, I spent a lot of time trying to do the impossible and calling it “hard work.”

Many come to RAISING CLARITY to stop working harder, however. They want to work smarter.

When we want to accomplish a thing smarter, what works is one of two things:

  1. bring the impossible close to you
  2. bring yourself close to it.

Bring the Impossible Close

The impossible is only impossible because it’s not chunked up properly.

But what really helps is understanding that the people who accomplish the “impossible,” didn’t. They understood it was possible by taking the one visible next step.

Bring Yourself Close to the Impossible

A soul-colleague is having a lot of trouble accomplishing a thing because of anger.  That means: easy can’t get closer.

When this happens, we have to move. The anger has to shift. Or the fear has to shift. Or the whatever is getting in the way.

The ego, the small self has to expand to let your Self tell yourself a bigger story. Our certainty we know the story already can change when we sit quietly as a witness to the story we’re telling. And in the uncertainty, something valuable and new can arise.

This is also why we say it’s important sometimes to “empty out” comes first when you want something new.

Ask for Help

You don’t even have to expect it. Just ask. Ask the invisible. And then try to empty out a little. You will be shocked. Doing this brings you close to what will become much easier once you ask for and receive and use the help.

This post is a fractal. I was in a small tizzy trying to figure out what to blog about today. I asked. And then I thought,

“Well, it’s either easy or it’s impossible.”

And then I realized that was the help I needed. And that it was true, so I could tell it to you. (I will not write things that aren’t true. Promise.)
