“When creation is an act of self-love, fulfilment occurs as a matter of course. Fulfilment happens. This is why it is said, ‘What you seek, you cannot acquire.’ Fulfilment is a result, not an action or a strategy.”
I heard my intuition say this, as I sat curled up on my sofa reading a fiction book while resting. I’ve been feeling a wee bit of a virus coming on and have been taking it slow. I have lots to do and it is so tempting to fall back into the habit of stressing but I know better now.
I have lots to do but if I truly want long-term sustainability and efficacy, my actions must be born of joy and love in each moment.
It is so easy to misunderstand such a statement as shirking responsibility or not having commitment. It is also so difficult to explain the difference.
Choosing to be and do in a state of love and joy does not automatically mean you are free from difficulty or even suffering. Hard things will still be hard. Difficult things will still be difficult. It’s the approach and expectations that differ.
I know the outcome I am creating. I also know that because I aspire for this outcome to be beautiful, the road to beauty is cannot be paved in pain. Pain, to me, is different from legitimate suffering. Pain, to me, is when I force myself out of alignment out of fear. Fear that things have to be a certain way, when in contrast, were I in a state of alignment, the creativity that naturally arises from such a state would provide lateral problem solving emergently.
Emergence is n-dimensional, however we create in the physical dimension and in the physical dimension, all creation happens linearly because we are confined to physical time constraints. So how do we reconcile the two? We realise that emergence provides us with the linear template we require that will be in alignment with our being.
Act in self-love and joy in the now to create the conditions that will result in the fulfilment you seek in the future. When in a state of self-love and joy, we are open to the genius and power of emergence from being and that’s how we tap into that core of self-direction.
