Less is More
It can be difficult to find your point of presence when you're in the throes of a BIG Shift.
When massive change hits a crucial area of your world, you can find yourself making long term decisions in a split second.
BIG Shifts often require speedy choices, even when you have little certainty of the outcome. Sometimes it's unavoidable: if you've experienced a natural disaster you need to secure food, shelter and safety for yourself and your loved ones. Sometimes rash choices occur when you're trying to avoid the fallout massive change can bring on.
What if in the midst of the chaos you chose to settle into the stillness instead of free falling into the frenzy?
Are You Powered By The Problem Or The Possibility?
BIG Shifts can make uncertainty look like the ‘new normal.' When there's SO much movement there's very little time for research, learning and planning. You often have to fly with your gut instinct and go with what feels right.
It's a dynamic experience which requires your full presence. Yeah, sometimes its flow, sometimes its funk. It's movement, nonetheless. And your focus shapes your experience.
The real seeker of truth never seeks truth. On the contrary, he tries to clean himself of all that is untrue, inauthentic, insincere – and when his heart is ready, purified, the guest comes. You cannot find the guest, you cannot go after him. He comes to you; you just have to be prepared. You have to be in a right attitude.
The choices you make aren't the determining factor in navigating the experience powerfully, it is who you are BEing that shifts the flow of just in time resources to gracefully support, instead of hinder, you.
One of the ways you can invoke the possibility is to schedule lots of ‘white space' in your calendar. Create pockets of play to shift the problem. Use the white space to muse, daydream and indulge in radical self care. Dance, sing, write and connect with people who care about you.
You will find that the BIG Shift creates an opportunity for a BIG Leap. All you need to do is tend the fertile ground of your being and it will find YOU.
Less is more, and basking in the white space will elicit a plethora of insights, ideas and inspiration. It will also invoke the cosmic forces to come and play.
