Unconditional Openness To All That Arises 🙏


Every Wednesday I am sharing some WOW’s with you; my teachers; my influences and who I am inspired by.
I hope you enjoy!

” The peace that we are looking for is not peace that crumbles as soon as there is difficulty or chaos. Whether we’re seeking inner peace or global peace or a combination of the two, the way to experience it is to build on the foundation of unconditional openness to all that arises. 
Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth, it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened “

When we meditate we first touch in on peace for the first time
We get to know it
And then we stabilise it
Day after day

“The foundation of unconditional openness to all that arises” is the key here for me; to be willing to sit with what comes, no matter what. This is how we TRANSCEND addiction; by facing it rather than running away. Through this journey we become strong in all areas of our lives, you may be surprised at what begins to change, transform, appear. Watch out! Your dream is just around the corner….


Member Quote Of The Day.

In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:

The heart/love meditation changed my thinking and feeling entirely. I found it hard to begin with. But I persevered daily and then the magic happened. It REALLY happened. I value and love myself today. And the softness of the love I feel for myself today feels exquisite, like a mother’s gaze, no judgement and unconditional. I can’t believe I lived my life half dead.

Today the love I offer to others I also deeply value and I feel alive with love. It’s more meaningful today because I can radiate that love with a pure truth.

When I started that meditation I couldn’t finish it for about a week. Then the next week I gritted my teeth until the end. I found it excruciatingly painful to start to love myself in the beginning. It felt unbearable.

The moral of this story? I broke through the pain barrier- I wept and wept and hated and struggled until it was unbearable. And then I sat on my cushion the next day. I dedicated myself to meditation practice. I did the work and it was not easy. The rewards are utterly life changing. Sending you love xxx
