Have you ever been so focused on a goal, you never thought beyond reaching your target? A sudden change leads to the unexpected completion to a long-standing issue. You reached the end of a process with zero preparation toward what comes next. This seems to describe a common theme in our world today.
Hope supports faith that brilliant solutions to complex problems facing humanity will appear. When they don’t, I am perplexed. Was I expecting too much from my fellow humans? Did I engage with magical thinking? Could I see a potential that was nowhere near reality? The challenges keep growing for the human race. At the same time, they keep growing for myself and others.
One of those challenges is how to detach from the drama without detaching from reality (tee hee). Interruptions to life in the form of a sudden shift leave me standing in disbelief. Arriving at a place that seemed elusive, I realize there was never a thought given to what is next. The result is feeling unprepared, insecure, and perplexed. By no means am I frozen in fear as much as standing motionless with uncertainty.
Karma is a blind spot, so maybe we are all dealing with the karma built up on this planet. But I’m working on my dharma, trying to find a natural flow to life. Fast changes aren’t helping either! So I’m asking for help from a spirit that whispers some understanding on fast changes:
What seem overwhelming may be distractions that lead to distortions of the mind. When put into context, you might see that your emotional response kept you from being present. Focus is lost in the blurred vision of a reaction to something other than what you expected. It may seem like you checked all the boxes of what is possible. In reality, a sudden change that stops your movement indicates holding limitations.
Coping mechanisms protect you from emotional overwhelm, but can influence unhealthy attachments. A clear perspective and open approach will help moderate the emotional reaction. Prioritizing your efforts is a grounding exercise. Remembering what you have already faced in life gives strength through flexibility. Knowing who you are mitigates the danger of getting pulled into the whirlpool of drama.
Acknowledge any self-imposed rules that activate stress-provoking thoughts. When you find a rule working to hold you back that you have imposed, consciously let it go. Stress will usually inform you of rigidity taking form. Do not fear the fast changes toward a new direction, for it may hold a better outcome than could be imagined. Acceptance of the things you cannot change is understanding, peace, and forgiveness manifested.
The best things in life are worth the wait. Cultivate patience with yourself and others as the most valuable virtue. Patience is slowing down to enjoy the journey, where creative expression is paramount. The sudden shift is the beginning of your story, and the destination is the end. You’re writing the story found between each moment.
Bring joy, ease suffering and create beauty, then dance like you mean it!
“You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret.
…is to press play.”
― Jay Asher
