Have you ever noticed that when one thing is outta whack, a whole lot of other things start turning up outta whack?
What IS that?!
I’m having more people ask me this right now, and it’s been a theme in my own life at times too.
One of the things it is, is a lesson to learn from. One of the lessons we can learn, is about our boundaries and how we set, maintain and enforce them.
One topic in many people’s lives lately, is a partner, friend or family member having unstable people creating drama and upset. This splashes onto us and creates learning opportunities. People create melodramatic stories, and the tension of living with the limits of their story creates chaos for all around them.
Stupid things get said and done.
Family members and friends get involved. There is Unpleasantness.
Relationships fray and mistrust predominates.
In that case, a sane response is to just not be involved. Remove yourself.
The rewards are worth it, no matter how interested you might be in what goes on. Focus solely on what’s most important to you and this kind of thing just won’t happen anymore.
So here’s a question: “What’s worth the most to you?”
My answer for instance, is always “Peace and Love in my life”. People and situations not exemplifying those two values don’t get past my door. If they do, they soon find themselves outside again. As I maintain my focus on peace in my life and love permeating everything, it just happens with little to no effort involved.
Other themes are manifesting in the mainstream lately that seem to be pandemic include friends making disastrous moves in the relationship or finance and moving suddenly, very far away.
Our plugged-in generation is entering a period of diaspora.
Once one of these things happens you’ll start noticing all those other areas that are out of whack.
One good way to be with it, is to watch the process roll both being a participant in it, and drawing your energy and consciousness up, out and expanding beyond all of “this stuff”, whatever your particular “stuff” is.
Expand beyond your city, state, country, beyond the boundaries of the world.
Go beyond “the stuff” and as far away as you’d like.
Take the galaxy if you want.
Now, look back and ask yourself: “From this perspective, what is really wrong?”
Just go with me on this. Have a bash at it. Go on. I’ll wait. Take your time…
I’m doing this little practice, and its effects are sheer magic. I’m meeting the most amazing people and having the most amazing opportunities open up, seemingly out of thin air.
Or at least, that’s how I would see it if I were someone outside my life looking in.
But you and I both know, that there’s a lot of sweat, tears, late nights and pints of jamocha chip that went into the people we are today.
Before we realized how to make it easy.
In my particular case, as a result of this practice, enlightenment comes and…I suddenly realize I’m meant to be somewhere else entirely.
Which has all of life manifesting interesting new angles.
(how did I get this lucky, and how does it get any better than this?)
Which means a radical departure, change-as-usual and a new old focus…
(deviously subversive. delightfully evolutionary.)
And that’s about all there is to it. When you hang on for so long your cramps have cramps, it’s time to let go. Let go, and let live, and you’ll reap the most amazing rewards.
It really does work. No kidding.
It also helps to scream “Whee!” a lot and run through the woods chortling with wild abandon…or maybe that’s just me.
Just one more thing. I want to thank you for your commitment to living an Evolutionary Life and helping all around you grow, evolve and thrive.
I hope you are dancing, singing and having a gloriously beautiful summer!
