Upward and onward! Being in a state of flow is not entirely an automatic experience for many of us and getting ourselves into the right state of mind, feeling and being may require taking deliberate action.
But first…. where is your internal energy level? Do you have the reserves to fuel your intentions? Do you know how to re-fuel your being sufficiently? Have you fed yourself well, provided your body the kindness of a nap?
I was misled early in the rebirth of my career, into believing that multi-tasking was a fantastic skill to master and the more tasks I had spinning around me the more I would be accomplishing. We have all heard the term, “kill two birds with one stone”. It’s been part of our cultural heritage to believe that stillness is often idle and multi-tasking is productive busy-ness.
“Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain un-moving
till the right action arises by itself?” ~ Lao Tzu
Often we forget that when a void of activity and vision arises, it is indeed time to refill our wells. It is time to nap,.. to dream. What is being called for is a “divine data download” meant to revitalize our efforts and bring new meaning to our happenings.
Running full force will burn us out. Being “ON” in a fixed and permanent way is the fastest path to fizzling out. Or should I say turning “OFF”? Quiet time is necessary and today as I take quiet reflective time I recognize that this is the way of all of life. It is the way of the earth and the seasons.
Remember to take restful and replenishing seasons and respect yourself enough to embrace them when they arise. Life will unfold.
Why not show up well rested, refreshed and at your very best?
