As I get ready for the final trimming of the holiday, I realize It is What it is! Getting texts from family wishing we could commune, friends all finding different ways to celebrate and live, new ideas on gathering across the board from none to many, it is a moment to moment experience. As I accept what is right now, it actually becomes a beautiful world! For when I can accept, I can see beauty.
Acceptance the first step to any movement forward with clarity. You realize and accept what is. After you get out of the anger, grief, frustration of it not being the way you want it, you can then see clearly to find ways to cooperate with what is happening. All things change when we get through that piece of acceptance. Often this is very hard to do as we have many expectations, emotional ties to outcomes and all want the things we want. To me this is where you can shorten any loop your in. ACCEPT. It doesn't mean no action or agreement. It just means this is what is really happening, not your desired or pretend version that is going on. Discernment key as well as realizing, as many people on the planet is as many perspectives or point of views their are and they are all happening at once.
As you accept you can then consider, "ok how do I cooperate with this situation to bring in my desires?" So adaptability, adjustment, flexibility can come in. When cooperation comes in, as it sounds, it is a moving and collaborative energy, many potentials and possibilities open up. You can search through all the potentials, "lean in" seems the buzz word and you can find one that enthuses you. So you catch energy to move in a direction with perhaps not the whole picture but the feeling toward something with positive excitement, This is our creative process we do in all things.
Embracing what is can seem burdensome in many situations. Especially now, with illness and death around, real life issues of value and what matters most is glaring. We get to reset our road rage and small annoyance to realize what really matter at this time. Not yesterday, not what you thought but right now after all the life you have been through.. We are all doing this together. No one is unaffected. All are riding in some sort of a weird reality that they are not so happy about. We all are swishing around, adapting, innovating and transforming. We are in serious creation mode, so the cards are not certain where they will land.
As we accept this and know others are accepting what is occurring, we can find ways to cooperate. Again, to accept doesn't mean to be in agreement or like, you just understand it is what is. As the emotions fall out, you then go for cooperation. The world becomes different not clouded by your romancing or full perspective, you let it go a bit. Here is where creativity, innovation and possibility are. How can I work with what is going on so I can participate and maybe even enjoy it?
Enthusiasm, which also has movement, is from an inner place and well of energy that moves itself almost. You are tied to a current rather than just you and your efforts. There is a collective energy bubbling in you. You get to choose from all the ways you thought of to cooperate, one that has this enthusiastic energy that you determine. What can you get excited about so you begin to move in a direction that delights.?
This creative process we are in has everything in it. That is the creative process. There is a reflective non moving when the outside is moving so fast and in unpredictable ways. There can be sadness, depression, fear, anxiety. all which come from uncertainty. These are emotions that coordinate with finding acceptance, really detangling what you think.... to what is...... "What" is in the form you need it. That is why I find these three steps are the way, when you are ready, to move onward despite the conditions.
I am embracing my holiday, the world, my finances, my direction, being in the West, all of it. As I do this each day and in general, I have some good bright energy towards the future. I have also had to go through what isn't, my dissatisfaction with it and let that all go so I could get to acceptance. I don't know whether it will come or how it will play out but I at least have an energy that is moving forward and can feel it. That makes me feel really good to have grand ideas to be part of. Maybe they will never happen or maybe they will happen quickly. Doesn't matter as much as that I have an idea to move to that cooperates with conditions and I find my enthusiasm. I get to chose what brings that in and then the magic begins.
Have a fabulous, loving filled holiday. May you get hugs and blessings, good food and laughter and whatever you may be needing and desiring as we shift into a whole new season undefined. We get to choose our role, our participation. Maybe no participation is a good answer too for some of us. Either way, we all can have a blessed end of the year embracing and knowing beauty and love are here! Just redirect your eyes!
