It is not meant to be easy.

The embodiment of [self] Knowledge requires an incredible amount of tenacity.
It is not meant to be easy.
However, don’t read that as “You are not meant to be happy”.
Of course, you are meant to be happy.
But the journey to a state of true balance requires us to force ourselves to learn what this actually means.
If we allow our socialized self to have its way, we will not ever move forward in our embodied knowledge.
This can be confusing because we also have a sense that life is meant to be easy and simple.
So, what part is easy? Once our creativity is flowing, it flows smoothly and naturally.
However, adjusting our perception toward that flowing creativity is one of the hardest and most frustrating things we can do because our socialized tendencies (our programming) are so rigid that the thought of breaking this fixation appears terrifying while we are inside of it.
This doesn’t mean that breaking our fixation is innately “hard”, but we do experience it as a challenge.
Just like walking a tightrope is typically seen as a challenge, it can also be perceived as easy if we are centered and calm.
The path of knowledge is more interesting because you are the tightrope.
The way forward is inevitable and waiting for your participation, so long as you’ve gathered the courage for the trek.
