'Step back within, reconnect with your Chi... wait for inspiration...' This was how I ended last month's page... so I did... I got on with life... went with the Flow... didn't think too hard about anything (usually difficult for me?!) and dealt with situations that arose... eventually I started thinking about Noise... that background type of Noise that gets filtered out of a distorted electrical signal to make the sound you hear clearer... so...
Imagine an Empowering World... where everyone has enough of whatever they need to be fulfilled and naturally healthy both physically, mentally and emotionally... where we can all pursue our creativity and enjoy sharing our lives with each other without anxiety, harm or mistrust. There are challenges, opportunities for personal growth, where you naturally meet the right person, pick up the right book, find the right web link, be inspired in some way to find understanding about what you are facing. You have a wonderful circle of friends for all sorts of occasions, some friends for a season and some are friends for life but this happens naturally in tune with everyone's needs. People do not harm each other in any way; they naturally know when someone needs their own space or when they need company. Conversations flow easily whether just passing the time of day or for those in-depth analyses and life-changing times. We all have enough money because we are all doing work that we are passionate about that uses and expands our talents and that others around us value because it helps them in some way... a natural flow of expression and appreciation. How wonderful would this World be? . . .
Noise... Life pulls and pushes all of us around with activities that have to be done, that we want to do, that others want us to do, that we feel are important, that are part of our routine or traditions... but are you able to give yourself time to rest, reflect and review all the activity?... To consciously decide if you are on the right track? Do you give yourself time to reconnect with your Centre to step back within and observe the Noise of your Life? Noise is all the patterns of behaviour which control, limit, confuse or disempower you. They are patterns that are fuelled by our vulnerabilities and self-protection... they disrupt and distort our Chi, our natural one-ness with everything, our natural empowered way of being... Where are you limited? What situations are uncomfortable? Whay confuses you? What do you do to avoid them or how do you defend or compromise yourself? Do you try to control the outcome? Do you want a life like this?
Step out of the Noise... Find your Centre... Give yourself some time. Do something you enjoy, just for you. Choose not to engage with disempowering behaviour, anything which feels uncomfortable. When 'Going with the Flow' feels peaceful, happy and easy, when life starts to unfold in an empowering and joyful way all on its own, you will have found your Centre :)
