As the world seems to be crumbing around us, you are reminded of majestic and glorious mountains when tectonic plates collided. These days you may feel that the ground seems to be constantly shaking underneath you. You may constantly worry what’s next that’s about to go wrong? Yet, if you’ve ever experienced an earthquake firsthand you only feel the shaking and rumbling when you are still. The earthquake may wake you from a deep sleep or sway you from side to side if you are eating at a table or sitting at a desk.
Yet, I completely missed the feeling of an earthquake while walking along the sidewalk meeting a colleague for coffee. The first reaction was, what? There was an earthquake? I didn’t even notice.
When you are in the midst of an earthquake, a failed business deal, a delayed project, a strained relationship, a child’s defiant behavior, another raise of inflation, something is attempting to knock you off balance and shake you up like a pinball machine. All one can really do is surrender and accept what is happening.
Acceptance is not loving the situation, it’s merely not giving your energy to it. If you’re avoiding it, suppressing it, or resisting it, the situation will only grow bigger until it gets your attention. Ever see someone who ignores a health issue, then end up in a hospital later? Acceptance is the first place of understanding.
These little earthquakes in your life, career, or relationships, shake you to bring out your fiery spirit and get you moving in the right direction.
The mystery of life unfolds when your feet are firmly planted on the ground and you express your highest and best self. This is when you don’t even notice the earthquakes. You keep on walking as if nothing bothers you. Your joyful wonderment breeds a higher state offing as if you are levitating above any shaky ground.
As you surrender into each moment, letting it unfold in magical ways, gentle unexpected surprises fall into your path. Inspirational ideas form and you receive little speckles of beauty and awe reminding you that you are on the courageous path forward.
What earthquake is ready to rise up and form a majestic mountain? Giant, beautiful unexpected surprises await you.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful, and prosperous day!
