Day 17 of “A 30 Day Journey into Stillness”
From an energetic point of view, Trust and Spaciousness are synonymous. When I really Trust that things are the way they are, and practice letting go again and again (and again!), a Spacious quality begins to emerge that relieves me of the tension caused by an endless stream of personal preferences. These usually revolve around something like “this should be happening, not this”; or “this should not be happening, this should.” It keeps my thinking mind very active — very blown up, puffed up, central, always in the foreground. (You get the picture.) It becomes the dominant filter through which I relate to life, and it can make my view very restricted and cramped. It is the opposite of spaciousness.
In the end, this Journey of Stillness is one of constantly letting go of “a perceived sense of control.” It is this perception that creates the momentum for the personal preference paradigm we are currently drowning in. There has never been a generation like ours with SO many personal preferences available. They keep us busy — constantly.
When the personal preference hamster wheel is slowed down, the Love in the centre of my Heart has enough space to blossom. Then I really know that there is nowhere to go, but here … where Love resides. I am right where I need to be. I Trust Love, and Love flows through me — heart, mind, and body.
