You cannot put a big load in a small bag,
nor can you with a short rope,
draw water from a deep well.
Chuang Tzue Stories
I have had one of those weeks where I convinced myself that I had replaced and rejuvenated my energy sufficiently, and that the stress I was holding was not affecting me.
Rule no. 1 – Never believe what my mind is telling me!
Rule no.2 – Don’t ignore the signs that my body is showing me. I know when my body needs to rejuvenate, but often I just push that little bit more, only to find I have to spend double the time re-balancing my energy. The energy I give out to others and any stress I am holding, needs to be released and replaced.
Rule no. 3. Quality, not quantity. Often I limit how much energy I receive in my meditation, much like filling my petrol tank a little each time, only to realize it doesn’t keep me going for long. When I take the time to really connect and let go in my practice of stillness, I expand and receive the vast energy of the universe.
Rule no.4. Don’t forget the rules! My health and my vibration is always calmer and clearer when I take the time to nurture my needs and my energy.
