Discontent is the divine’s call to sacred union.
Love and acceptance are the keys to integrating our various aspects and consciously uniting with the divine.
This animated video is hilarious. It humorously illustrates the differences in our right and left brain functioning. Much of my life I have felt the pull (even warring) between these diverse aspects of myself. We all express our right and left brain traits to varying degrees. The polarity between the two seems extra divergent in my case, but maybe that’s my left brain talking. Plus we have various aspects of our personality, mind, body, emotions and spirit to make peace with.
Thankfully, I’m mellowing these internal struggles as I learn to embrace, encourage and accept all of myself. I’ve been practicing radical self love, offering myself love and compassion no matter what I think, feel, do or experience.
Matt Kahn would suggest our problem is trying to be spiritual and modifying our behavior in an attempt to find happiness, love, enlightenment and other ideal future states. We imagine divinity as requiring certain behaviors and conditions. His latest teachings encourage us to celebrate everything that arises within and without in our experience. In other words, accept every thought, feeling, action and experience as the divine at play. When we trust life and the divine, our life flows with grace and ease. The more we accept, embrace and zestfully celebrate the divine in everything, the more we align with the divine and our life flows.
Whatever arises. Love that. This is the heart of awakening. ~ Matt Kahn
Matt suggests we focus on the present, find more things we are doing right, compliment ourselves and others routinely throughout the day. Do not mess with our problems or try to be a certain way. Simply love whatever arises, offering only love, celebration and acceptance. Lately, I’ve been practicing complimenting myself for everything, even the anger, sadness, losses and more. Matt’s point is that we are not trying to change or control ourself or our experiences. We simply accept, own and celebrate everything, thereby dissolving judgment and the illusion of separation from the divine. As we honor the divine in all, we come to realize that the divine operates within every experience for our benefit. And the more we embrace everything as divine, the better our lives will flow.

Only by celebrating everything first, exactly as life shows up, will we find the peace, love and joy we seek.
