Releasing old patterns doesn’t have to be hard or painfil. It can be easy or hard, depending on our approach. When we approach any situation with the energy of understanding and cooperation, Grace will help resolve the situation smoothly. When we approach any situation with the energy of combat, winning, getting our way, we will have a fight on our hands, and it will be as difficult as we make it.
When approaching any situation or negotiation, we must be ready for our ego to be attacked, which will make us want to lash out in anger and frustration. When ego wants to strike, we must resist the urge. Understanding and cooperation will always get you more than fighting and resisting. You will always benefit from maintaining the energy of ease and grace in any interaction.
