we carry all sorts of strange weights and hindrances around with us in this life. we tend to experience much of the journey through dichotomy and contradiction, within and without… until we don’t.

like a pedantic metronome, the slowest tempo is also the widest oscillating motion. our life path can reflect this in our reality, with ups and downs, but our frequency, or vibration is a more relevant indicator.

lower, baser energies, perceptions, and beliefs not only suppress our playfulness, ease, and joy in life, but drag the progress of our personal mission. dwelling in the heaviness also keeps us in a range of manipulable feelings and emotions, as our resolve can only ever reach to resentment and vengeance; child’s play; grey, bleak outlooks and perpetual depression, and general apathy.

this, too, is a healing process – if we wish it to be. however, for many, this may be the extent of what a lifetime encompasses. that’s fine, but most don’t really feel good about it. even if our intuition is entirely disabled, life finds a way to challenge our stubbornness and inject a little wonder…

people will show up (or show up again), toes will get stubbed, new family will be born, adopted, or found, old family will drift or pass away… accidents, coincidences, windfalls and bankruptcies… the expected and mostly the unexpected will keep us bouncing around until we move our pendulum weight up the notches, affording us a lot more “clicking” in the focal moment, rather than up/down or good/bad.

this isn’t simply numbness and detachment, but true presence.

when we care too much about the external influencers, we deny ourselves connection to our truth. we develop reliance on outer validation, rather than strengthening our character and resolve. this inherently destroys trust in our own guidance, and thus becomes either naive dependence, or merely superficial trust in others. enter the shame, blame, and guilt game…

but, as with everything, life always gives us the exacting specifics of what is relevant, that doesn’t usually require our eyes to “see”.

the less we expend energy into vacuous voids, the more we can tap into the beneficent flow. the more we care about the better feeling thought; the exciting, interesting, engaging options available right now, the less time, energy, and attention we will give away to issues, situations, circumstances and people who just don’t matter – or rather, don’t resonate.

everyone matters. everyone counts. everyone is cared for. however, a kind of spiritual selfishness allows us to align with teachers, lessons and learnings closer to our heart, and allows those who are not the freedom to discover the same.

with every breath, love.
