much of our training and conditioning as thinking beings has an unnatural bent toward the negative.
it’s an extension of the idea of “not enough”.
we focus on ridding ourselves or our lives of things we do not want. but there is a vast difference between pushing away, or resisting, and letting go, or allowing.
it’s important to be conscious of all the ways we expend our precious creative energies. too often, we default to reactionary, low-level – yet high-cost battles that leave us depleted and wanting.
you can easily observe it in common emotional transactions, especially between parents and children, or lovers and partners. those closest to us are the dichotomous givers and receivers of compressed and intense growth and change catalysts.
however, the trickier, and more insidious aspect of these struggles lies within.
our society engenders a perpetual battle between heart and mind; between rote logic and the feeling space. on this collective road to rebalancing, we must constantly remember to be easier on ourselves about it all.
competition, comparison, and purposeful spiritual obfuscation leaves us frequently believing that even treading water is a survival tactic – never mind what awaits in the deep end.
there is validity in betterment, achievement, and challenge, and it lies within self-discovery, self-awareness, and the journey with happiness. as we clarify and realize our preferences, we know full well what we do not want.
what floats the boat is the lightness of focusing on that which we do want, what we do prefer, what we feel good about, dream about, and imagine best-case scenarios about.
this is where the poetry of this place exists. the stars and planets are made with ease, grace, patience and subtle magnetism that worries not about clocks and clunky measuring sticks.
