I believe in the Infinite. I don’t particularly like to think about limits, as I believe we are limitless. However, I do believe that our body forms are limiting. It is the reason that we must take time out to rest and relax as our cells recharge. The Source that charges us is unlimited.
But the reality is that we make energy choices all of the time. Should I go here and do that? Or should I stay home and relax? There are other unconscious choices we make about energy use when we worry about things or remain in toxic situations. I believe it is absolutely possible to overcome anything, but I think the question that must be asked is, “At what energy cost?”
For you see, when we tie up our energy in lower value things (like worry, stress, or dealing with toxic people and situations), we have less energy to do the work that we were sent here to do. As I’ve made choices to better align myself and my actions with what I feel I’m supposed to be doing, I find that I don’t want to spend energy in lower value areas. I also see how my time in Corporate was keeping my energy tied up from more Creative and Spiritual pursuits.
It is a divine blessing to be free of constraints. However, sometimes a series of choices — often difficult choices — are required to move us into that space of freedom. I believe it is incredibly possible. And the question is always the same: What are you willing to let go of? Until your answer that question is everything, it is possible to go on leading a very attached life that seems to be missing something. That “something” could be as simple and profound as peace. In case you’re still wondering how you might know that you need to consider letting go, ask yourself, “Do I feel trapped?”
If you answered, “No,” to that question…let me ask you another. If you wanted to pick up and move to Greenland tomorrow, could you? (Not would you.) When I tell people that I moved to an island in Africa, I often hear, “Oh, I wish I could do that!” My response is always the same, “You could.” But people then share their stories that include things like, “Oh, I have a house here, though.” Or, “Well my family is all here…” and so on. The reality is that people and things are attachments. Of course there is nothing wrong with having things and family! But I think is difficult to be truly free when every decision is made through the lens of attachment. I found that when I let go of all of my things, I had more energy. And when I let go of everyone else’s opinion, I could do anything ;)
Sending good vibes, love and light to you!
