Yes, it is not easy. Not easy at all. Sometimes it is flowing like a river through a wide valley, creating the atmosphere of peace and serenity, and sometimes it is like a mountain stream falling down with a great speed and force, through the boulders and rocks. If the mind holds limitation, floating through the valley, you do have more space and time to see and process it, or even disregard for now, but if you feel as though you are a powerful mountain steam, spare no time, look immediately what is holding you from freedom of this limitation, otherwise in no time you will find yourself being dragged by the gushing waters through the rocks, face down ! Here you need to be brutally honest with yourself, the sort of honesty when you are alone, in your bed, under the blanket, and no one watching. There you are not listening to the mind's usual defences. You are alone and don't need to pretend to be anything but what you've got. It is possible to see clearly what mind tries to still hold on to, and here you have a chance! You can look straight into the limitation/belief/defence, and this will start the de-conditioning process, releasing this limitation. Even seeing it is already enough, more then that, it is so powerful that it is immediately change the course of life. Every moment life starts anew, and it is a powerful beginning for life to start from seeing limitation, rather then old habitual holding on. And this is how the greatest changes happen - they start from honesty with yourself, maybe in your room at night, under the covers, you will face your greatest fears and discover the lightness of being!!
