Wuwei-concept of effortless action
“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred… Unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.”
Many of us are living in what we perceive as a nightmare. But what if this was the only way to shake things up? What if our nightmare is leading to something completely different? What if this is the shift we've been hoping for?
Keeping ourselves from being sucked into the black hole all around us, is the challenge. Now is the time to go inward, to take the advice of Goethe and truly commit to whatever practice resonates, be it yoga, running, chi-gung, meditation, or all the above. Otherwise we are truly powerless. And we are not, since every time we look inside and connect with spirit we're adding to the light and chasing away the darkness. All we need to do is show up, as the saying goes, to find ourselves in alignment. And when we are in alignment good things start to happen--doors open, opportunities present themselves. We are suddenly in the midst of what we love instead of fighting against what we hate.
So keep on writing, speaking, drawing, painting and building your truth. Now is not the time to despair--now is the time to rejoice in the light, and to dispel the darkness. Concentrate on what makes you happy and do that..and let the rest of it go...
