The Opportunity in Challenge

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to talk about the opportunity that

arises in difficult experiences.

So I'd like to start with a statement.

Being with the worst parts of life

requires the best parts of you.

Being with the worst parts of life

requires the best parts of you.

The pain, the fear, confusion, despair,

these are your opportunities to rise.

And to rise doesn't have to mean pumping

your chest, gritting your teeth and

screaming, I can overcome anything.

It might mean taking care of yourself,

putting up boundaries, meeting

your confusion with presence and

compassion or it could just mean total

surrender, the strength of surrender.

The powerful thing about difficult

experiences is that we tend to grasp for

anything that will help us get through.

But our usual life strategies

often feel insufficient.

It's there for this perfect

opportunity to ask yourself,

what are my unique strengths?

My gifts?

How can I let this negative

experience activate something

positive and powerful in me?

Perhaps something that

hasn't been activated before?

Remember you can focus on the pain

itself, or you can focus on the

goodness required to meet the pain.

Hope this gives you something to consider

if you're going through something

difficult or for the next time you do.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
