Over the years I’ve noticed that sometimes when the most powerful thing I can do is to STOP doing and get still, I’ll keep going and obstinately refuse to follow that Divine guidance.
I notice it’s a very common thing among spiritual seekers and students – we pray for guidance, and then when it comes we completely ignore it and go in the opposite direction. We ask for help and then stubbornly refuse to accept it.
So often, I think I knew that in the stillness there would be a healing and revealing and I was intent on avoiding it EVEN THOUGH I’d been asking and asking and ASKING for the very thing I was now avoiding. This behavior is crazy-making and it leads to the feeling that one cannot be trusted. It also has led me to despair.
So, right now I’m getting plenty of guidance to be still and I’m following it. YES!
Right now, I’m investing as much as possible in being contemplative, in feeling my feelings and opening to the wisdom of the heart. So much is shifting it requires MUCH stillness. It feels to me like I’m passing through a doorway of sorts and it is the expansion and healing that I’ve been asking for.
Sure, there’s the temptation to go to movies and clean out closets and relax and be in the DOING of whatever could be done in this moment, but I’m choosing to receive my answered prayer.
I invite you to consider if it makes sense to add more stillness to your days right now. Will it support your expansion to avoid unnecessary activities and busy-ness? Consider: what do you most want now? What is your focus?
It feels to me like there’s a deep listening that’s being called for. What are you feeling? Please share in the comments section below!
