Our world doesn't encourage us to feel proud of what we have accomplished for long. It is looked at as ego but the ego has a place. It is what gets us through. False pride isn't the same as really reveling in your ingenuity. We all should be reveling in it these days. Just to keep going in such uncertainty is HUGE!
Taking time to be peaceful and see how far you have come. My dear friend reminded me of this in myself. I moved across the country in the largest crisis of the world I have ever experienced. Courage, bravery and boldness are the qualities of such a task. I started in a new business to boot. I sit and revel in myself. It is not egotistical to feel the power of what I have done and continue to do as I create in this new world. We all are bold to find any joy, appreciation and persistence during this time. This is a challenging world right now and we don't know what will occur next.
There is a balance happening between doing and resting in between. Finding that both have their place. Balance. Grounding. Stillness to hear ourselves. These are equally important to action even if our mind says not. Moving and rat wheeling are not the only things that show progression and growth. Like a seed sits in the ground getting soft so it can shoot out it's sprout. This absorbing water and softening is the most powerful step in all the life of a seed. The quiet part that surges forward all the direction to come. We need to honor this in ourselves and the world as so key to the process of doing.
I, too, have had to reset this idea of action and listening. Coming from the East coast, doing is going on always and everywhere. If you are not, you are considered falling behind, lazy, not producing. I find this covid as a time to realize how off that is. So against how nature and life works. How our mind has caught us up in such misinformation. This slow down, rethink, reconsider, recreate is our call to balance ourselves. Find a new way to be in balance that works for us. Not for society. For if we are feeling good and balanced, society will feel it for we are society.
Savoring, reveling, pleasure in yourself, in the world and moments of feeling good are necessary! These allow time for new ideas, information, guidance to come in and send us forward. Moving quickly, down the wrong road for we didn't take the time is wasteful energy. We all have done that many times so perhaps a different way is part of this slow time. I consider this slow can enliven us through feeling the pride in ourselves, in our listening, in our being, feeling more into ourselves. Not in a critical way but in a good, pleasurable way! All this petty tyrant and critical views. Very unbecoming. Unhelpful as well.
I am not one to be sitting so I know what mental garbage comes up when I do. We have no choice in many cases for moving forward fast is not available. All is in the cocoon stage of not a caterpillar and not yet a butterfly. It is like a mush of chemicals mixing up with no real form yet. Sit in it and allow it time. While you do for goodness sake use it to revel in your wonder, tenacity, persistence, beauty, creative nature. This stillness unfolds ideas, form and the new way of things. Pushing forward is not the way anymore. It is an allowing time. We balance this in us. We let go of that ideas and quietly watch the new order come forward in us and around us.
Be gentle and proud of yourself for being at this time. Notice the adjustments, creativity, innovation you have done during this epidemic. We all are morphing together. It is becoming a more unified field. It takes time to find our sealegs. Being present, proud of ourselves and open to creativity is a non doing that is doing alot. Consider how grand you are to still be functioning among all this strife and even doing ok in it. It is a huge truth of this time. Help where you can but help yourself first. You do this by admiring yourself. We should be proud to be moving along in this uncertainty. Take time to revel in that.
Sitting, savoring, resting and dreamy is perfect for this moment and actually the key to rebirth. I revel in my boldness. All is unfolding and it is not always about me doing everything. Thank you great goodness for the rest and the ability to feel good for all I have already done. This is a blessing!
