This weeks verse is a a great reminder for me to BREATHE!
LOL Here it is Thursday and I have been so busy I am just
now getting to writing this! I started to at about 2 am
for the last 3 nights and just couldn’t grind it out.
I can absolutely 100% tell you that the verse is right…
we are not in control.
In this era of “The Secret” and “Law of Attraction” we
like to tell ourselves that we are in complete control of
our manifestations and our world but in reality, not so much.
For those of us that feel energy, things are really chaotic
right now…I would venture to say that many of you who have
never felt energy are starting to feel it now. It may show up
as anxiousness, fear, anger, frustration even rage and you
pick it up from the Collective.
There are techniques to shield from the Collective but in the
end we are all part of the same energy so shielding against
anything is blocking part of ourselves. Thankfully we do have
Free Will to choose how we think about those things. How we
interpret them. Are we even paying attention?
“Pay attention to the flow of your life.”
Remind yourself that you don’t have to be in charge— that, in fact, it’s impossible for you to be in charge.
The nameless force, which Lao-tzu calls the Tao, moves everything, so your continual argument with it only causes dissatisfaction. Each day, practice letting go and seeing where you’re directed. Take note of who shows up and when. Observe the “strange coincidences” that seem to collaborate with fate and in some way steer you in a new direction. Keep track of situations that occur spontaneously or out of the realm of your control.
“Look for a new, joyous feeling within you.”
Those should be comforting words to most of us and in most
cases are, but as humans, our ego has the job of protecting
us and often has a lot of resistance to “not being in charge”
LOL it is that resistance to “what is” that causes most of
our pain and frustration.
Do you get easily frustrated when things don’t seem to be
going your way?
I do sometimes, especially when I have something
that I need to do (like write a blog post…:) and thing after
thing keeps coming up. It makes me feel like I’m running out of
time, that there isn’t enough time to do everything I have
committed to… but those are just thoughts, and untrue thoughts
I might add. Isn’t it Amazing how easily we can block ourselves
if we don’t control our minds?
With all of the upheaval in the Collective over the Elections, the
economy, the increasing violence etc, are you getting swept away
with the fear or are you trusting that everything is shaking loose
for a reason? Are you recognizing the Collective energy’s influence
in your life or are you “interpreting” it as fear, anxiety even illness?
Are you trying to fight your way across the ocean doing the
breaststroke or are you gliding across the waters in your
sailboat? The destination is the same but one requires a lot
Personally, I am in a flow that seems to be going faster than I
can swim but I know that is also a lie. I need to BREATHE. I
need to Relax and let the stream carry me. I just need to stay
in the present moment and complete one task at a time, it will
all get done, just as this blog post has 🙂
Flow like Water my Friend <3
