As I begin to understand what it truly means by living in the “Flow“, a word the new age has thrown around for sometime, and a concept that challenges most of our lives, I am finding the journey to be inspiring, and liberating. But, most of all challenging.
I have a hefty Doing Consciousness, so the idea of “Allowing” means that I need to re-weave my thinking and the way I live my life.
When I wake in the morning and ask the day “what do you want of me today” or ask my highest self, “what would bring me joy today?”, I am excited to hear the answer, yet challenged to not first orient to the always undone “To Do List”. It is all too familiar to convince myself that I have to first earn the right to a joyful day by slogging through that unsavory list ….First.
So, The Gypsy Life has at its center, my practicing “allowing”, not doing. And the minute I understood this in a deeper way I received the following message in my inbox this morning. And now I simply feel gratitude for this amazing journey.
“Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.
Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.
There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.
We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.”
