This is a good smile, too

So you can ask yourself anytime, anywhere, any place: am I in harmony with myself, right now? Am I in alignment, right now? Or is there some discord? Is there some grating, some friction in the system? And if there is, that’s ok! Drop the judgment, drop the blame, drop the explanations. Surrender to what’s actually happening, and give your attention to that which is in friction. See what happens. What you often find is that things get more vivid, more intense. Suddenly there’s more fear, more anxiety, more grief, whatever. But as you fully allow that intensity, that grief, whatever it is in that moment, then all of a sudden, poof, it can simply dissolve. I’m sure you’ve had that happen. It’s mind-blowing, isn’t it?
