Stagnation

Energetic stagnation leads to obsessive behavior, akin to escapism. If we narrow our options, through egoic attempts at control, or if we idle in an indecisive haze, we tend to develop blockages that will inflame in the physical machine.

Everything is energy; vibration. Ours is a reality based on movement. Where thoughts can manipulate matter, matter has to move. Thoughts, as we know, do not stop. The fluidity of this spacetime doesn’t stop. So, when we put up roadblocks or speed bumps, buffers so to manage or wrangle the situation, we tend to introduce resistance, which usually manifests as pain.

The challenge is to trust, and to be truthful, authentic, and vulnerable. We always know our preferred path, our inner calling, our intuited dreams, our desires, and our visions for this journey. It’s quite easy to get bogged down in the everyday, and then to make excuses — little ones, then more elaborate ones, layer after layer, compounding the dam to the flow.

And, we see the results in how we treat others and in how we treat ourselves. We conjure up fantastic lies, and embellish what little we achieve. Gratitude is moot. Fuses shorten, tempers get more easily heated, defensiveness is rampant, shoulders squeeze up toward the ears, aches and pains manifest everywhere, and motivation to engage in even some of the most basic functions in our routine are taxing. We shut down, bit by bit.

Then, we tend to look for fixes, such as “power” yoga, or a marathon, an affair, or something else extreme. We’re desperate to feel alive. Good luck. You’re more likely to do cowardly, stupid things, or injure yourself, quite seriously, if you don’t address the underlying tension and its source.

Yet, in an instant, we can get right back into the dance. One small shift can generate new positive momentum, or one big leap can immediately create a new highway. The universe exists outside of these 3D constructs, in the space between, in the ethereal, infinite everything. It only ever knows “yes”.

At any moment, we can choose to remember the game. At any moment, we can choose to wonder “what if?” and “what else is possible?” and to engage again in the mystery. We can remember anticipation, excitement, exhilaration, not knowing the how, but knowing the trust of the process, and taking chances.

We can remember to step confidently, not with a deflating need or from a place of lack, but with assured whimsy, curiosity, wide eyes, and quickened heartbeat . . . To dare for greatness — not based on the tangible, or profitable, or transient or trite — but for fulfilment, for uplift-ment; for completeness and spirit, for heart and from soul.

Desire is destructive to the superficial. We, on some level, will never allow ourselves to entertain apathy and ennui. Let the artist arise. There’s a reason it’s called “conscious co-creation” and you are that reason.

Love your life,
