I often feel thoroughly in my element, and that I am on my mission — yet nearly as often, I get tripped up and frustrated by the practical things… like providing for myself and being able to pay the bills, so to free up my creative and conscious efforts, and get back to being a positive, uplifting, healing force in this world, at this time.
There are many of us in this boat. I recognize this. I have seen your feeds on social media; the deeply personal posts, videos, and vulnerable (or angry, passionate, frustrated) sharings, in amidst the focused, purposeful and on-topic. I definitely, genuinely empathize with you.
There’s much that is unraveling and shifting and untangling within us, and without. The practical, everyday concerns don’t necessarily compute, especially as much of it involves fairly trivial, inane, outdated ideas and constructs on how we live, how we should live, what’s truly valuable, and what really matters.
It’s easy to be simply productive, to be busy, and to take care of tasks. But who cares? What substance, what meaning, what fulfilment is there in just doing and doing and then dying? It’s a decidedly masculine paradigm that has had its day.
We mustn’t negate nor disregard the grander truths of our higher dimensionality, and what lies beyond the clunky, heavy, mired mess of a merely third-dimensional beingness.
The challenge is to bridge the gap. Develop a balance between taking care of practicalities — but just enough to liberate your energies to delve and dive into the truly enlivening; the enthralling, interesting, fulfilling, exciting, adventurous, and soul expressing; to get back to being on mission, and of service.
We can do what we love and still feed, house, and provide for ourselves at the same time. More of us are engaging life in this way, every day. It’s inspiring, so thank you to the daring, courageous and curious for following through — trusting and trying and failing and succeeding with your ideas.
