We all have been in quite an experience of newness these days. Nothing in our structure of life has remained the same. Our regular patterns and activities have been jostled and it is disorienting. Our basic self, our patterned nature grasps for rhythm, routine and certainty. It is like a child that wants to know a schedule or rhythm for security but it is not there.
This is a natural desire for we live in a rhythmic universe. It is like music, when we experience it. We feel good when there is harmony to the random notes. This is not a creative part of ourselves but the part that wants stability in what's next. We usually don't get into the higher states of creativity and openness when we feel unsafe. It is all quite illusionary for in reality, the nature of things is still in a perfect harmony and rhythm. The sun still comes up, the birds and trees are still singing and growing, Overall life is becoming. It is our small view of the world that has changed. Our perspective of how it should be. This can be a challenging perspective to have now.
As I moved during this pandemic, I am truly managing all things new. It can be disorienting and exhausting so I remember expansion goes in cycle. Overall, nature is always expanding but she goes through the cycle of 4 seasons. The rebirth of spring, the growing of summer, the harvest of autumn and a siow down of activity in winter. All things new does keep your more aware and alert as to what is going on in front of you. We have lived with many things on automatic, most of our lives. Now those things are not automatic. Our mind can't figure out what is next which creates uncertainty thus feeling unsafe.
In reality, each moment is new so we are not going through anything more than once. However the way we lived was like ground hog day on many levels. Today these levels must become alert and perhaps be different. This is really being alive when each moment is new, all possibilities available in each moment and responding to what is going on. So although we are not in usual ways, we are in great creativity which is the power in any moment.
We all know living now, we must be so alert, unpatterned, and this needs a slower pace to digest the world. To be present, respond in possibility, review the best solution in the moment takes a pause, a reflect, a slower pace. We can be more adjusting and thriving when we use this slower pace to move through the world. Our mind and regular being doesn't feel so good at this. It is used to moving fast, expecting certain things to be a certain way. We end up with our body being present and adjustable but the mind wanting to fight or glide over the moment and do how it has been patterned.
It is a messing mix yet it is an awakening of our greater self that operates in creativity and innovation. Knowing really nothing is the same. We are set up to thrive in this!
As all life is new for me, I am learning to make the most out of this newness.I have found the slower pace, being in the moment and watching the world with greater observation is the way to create life comfortably. It I try to go at the pace I could when I knew my surroundings, where reference points where automatic, I become overwhelmed. I get exhausted and then want to rest. Every bit of information is new to me. From what roads I drive, to find where I am going, in all moments I am required to move slower with great observation. I have to be very gentle on myself for I am not used to all this alive awareness.
It is important that we realize that just because the mind wants to move fast, understand quickly and judge situations doesn't mean it is the best way to do things. We have let is run us with its finite view and love of pattern which is only one part of our mind. Our creative, innovative, alive mind needs to connect with all the other senses we have as it moves. Then it can create ideas and optimal situations by what is happening before you, not what you wish was happening.
I find life anew is more fun and easy when I take it slow. When I am gentle, notice when I am uncertain or in stress or fear, I step back and slow down. This easily centers me. If I have had enough newness for the day, I honor that and rest so I can digest what occurred and where I really am. It is basically how we learn when we are young. We are not so trained by the mind or logic and just experience many things without judgement. When we don't get what we want, we may have a moment of upset but quickly let go and move forward. We don't have the ability to expect what's next for we are in full time learning. As we get older, we lose this present awareness and truly step out of life.
I think it is a great time of reset in how we move through the world. You can stay stuck in what was or being upset that things have changed. There is another way, by realizing everything is creating anew. It is obvious these days but it has always been the case. This awakening is the realization that our nature is much more vast than we have been experiencing. The world allows us not to use so much automatic movement with our mind somewhere else. This creative experience becomes more reality and we find the way we moved before will not work. We are now more in alignment with what is really going on, having to use more present awareness and slow down. We have always been creating in each moment and just forgot.
Now we are really evolving, using more of our capacity of discernment and creativity. We just can't be fully aware and move fast at once or we will exhaust ourselves. It is a bit scary yet offers greater power in creativity. Realizing we are really creating moment to moment. Being in a new world it is clear to me that I have far more power than I thought. I just need to live this, slow down and see all that is occurring in the moment and make live choices continually. There is no automatic pilot allowing me to check out of life.
This is awakening to a new world and all that is in it. We have lost our sight and sensory experience. Now it is turned full on. It is good. Take your time, realize your power and see all is new. You do better with this perspective rather than using the old ways. God Bless us all in this uncomfortable but enlivening time.
This is the fun, adventure and aliveness of living!
