On Sunday, we finished our work in Tolly Burkan’s book Let It Be Easy: Simple Actions to Create an Extraordinary Life.
The premise of the book is that there are four simple points we can use to let it (life) be easy:
- Speak the truth
- Ask for what you want
- Keep your agreements
- Take responsibility for your agreements
Then, there are seven ingredients that we can use, applying the four simple points, in order to create an extraordinary life.
What’s the difference between ordinary and extraordinary? To me, it is the experience of easy. Want to do, be or have something new? Of course, because Spirit is my source, all the pieces fall into place and the money shows up so I can do, be or have whatever it is.
Have a situation in my life? Using attentive awareness, one of the seven ingredients, I can see that there is a blessing in it for me. I stay out of judgment, and in curiosity.
Another of the seven ingredients is adding self worth to my life. Do I carry guilt, shame and regret about something I did, or didn’t do, that keeps me from expressing and experiencing all the good that life, and Life, has for me? I’m the only one keeping score–the Infinite is not.
