We have all seen it, the easy button. It was a commercial or something, right? Lately it has been my mantra, let it be easy. Before you roll your eyes stay with me. It has more to do with the Law of least effort which states, "that nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease and abandoned carefreeness. This is the principle of least action, of no resistance. This is, therefore, the principle of harmony and love. When we learn this lesson from nature, we easily fulfill our desires." - Uncle Deepak (aka Deepak Chopra)
I say it to myself when I start to TRY to much. I need something to remind me to loosen my grip on life and let things flow as nature does. My true nature is EASE. So I remind myself of this numerous times during the day. It works with math equations (simple math in my experience), long term goals, small desires, arguments, in yoga class, while making dinner, fucking, and so on and so forth.
Try it! I dare you. Next time you feel tension or stress say it in your mind eye or out loud and see what happens. Do your thoughts begin to shift? Do you experience ease in the situation or your body? Try it and let me know how it works for you.
