As I contemplate how I am showing up in life today, in my work, with my mate, my friends, family and community, I am struggling against the DO monster.
I long to BE, but all of my past programming is screaming at me to DO.
"Take this action and that action and
DO SOMETHING, and get it all DONE. "
There are unfinished projects (many of them never
past the initial "buy a program or a book" phase)
and even more un started ones.
It can be so easy to get trapped in the cycle, and to
forget that what is MORE important than the DOing,
is who and how I am BEing WHILE I am Doing.
It does me little good (and potentially harm) to do
anything without my heart involved. That means
I have to be present WHILE I am Doing.
It's one thing to be Present while I eat, or exercise,
or meditate, or pray, or even write or study. But to
be Present and In my HEART when engaging with a
client or my Sweetie or a friend, family, or neighbor
is to really BE living in a connected way to life.
This is the Foundation for Relating, no matter
who you are engaging with in any moment.
HOW I show up in any activity will color and
shape my experience. All it really takes is an
awareness, in the moment, to drop down into
my heart and be aware of my energy. What
is the field I am generating?
Rupert Sheldrake wrote about "Morphogenic
Fields" and how they affect the material plane
that we all swim in. You have experienced this
phenomenon whether you were aware of it or not.
You walked into a room and you FELT something.
It might have been joyful excitement or it might
have been gloom or anything in between but you
FELT it when you entered the space.
You can create your OWN field just by being
present and accessing your heart. Your heart
electromagnetic waves have been measured
several meters out from your body, unlike the
inch or two of your brainwaves.
Knowing this, try bringing an open and loving
heart to your next activity. ESPECIALLY if it
involves a loved one. If you are having issues
with someone you care about, it will be even
more critical to meet them with this open and
loving heart and an intention to LEARN.
Set up this field no matter WHAT you are doing
and see what it feels like to be BEing as you
do what you do. Experiment and enjoy the
fruits of LIVING FULLY no matter what you have
More on this next time when I share the
practice of Blessing Everything.
