Just a Guide
Dear Blessed One,
Are you in alignment with the natural flow of Life?
What are you feeling? Whatever you’re feeling is a signpost to how close or how far your ideas are from alignment with the natural flow of life.
I’m on day-one of a family visit, and vacation in Florida. From here I fly to Boston to visit with more family, and work. Monday morning I awoke with a cold. Yesterday I flew three airplanes to arrive in FL. I’m uncomfortable, sneezing, facial flooding, ears rattling, feverish, and one ear hurting.
I was told that because I used Miles to book my flight that it couldn’t be changed. Okay. I could have gone into anger, victim, resisting, sympathy-seeking, and complaining about the way things are; that would have been resisting the nature of things. I have a cold. Flow is to just move with it. Stay present. Feel the effect of humidity and heat on restricted breath. Be with every tissue, every ache.
Let out a howl and let some energy move (not on an airplane though). No story needed about how bad the timing is, how it sucks, or how it’s ruining my vacation. That would be misalignment with life. That would be resisting the natural flow of life. This is how my vacation is meant to be right now; I only know that because this is how it is.
So, how one is reacting to whatever is present in life is just a guide, or a barometer for how far you’ve gone into the mental realm believing that it shouldn’t be this way.
Pain is pain, just feeling it is how the energy can move. Stories about the pain takes one into suffering, and exaggerates the experience. It’s fighting with life.
Be still. Go into the body. Take one conscious breath (through the mouth if necessary), and ask life what is needed in the moment, how to respond to whatever the situation is, and then listen.
It may just be saying rest dear one.
Much Love and Blessings to You,
