Going with the flow

For those of us who believe some of the stuff about 2012 (I say some because I certainly don't believe all the theories that have been banded about), it's been a pretty challenging year. I feel like I want it to end .. like now. I just feel drained right now after another shitty day and at a point where all I can really do is trust what is happening even though sometimes things appear to be getting worse.

Lettings things be as opposed to resisting and fighting them can definitely be a challenge. It's natural to want to fight pain, be it physical or emotional. The general mentality of a lot of people is to go to the doctor and get some happy pills. If only people were taught to embrace their pain, and face it, rather than run from it.

When you're in a place where you don't really know how things are going to get better, it's important not to try and work it all out in your head. The mind is a great problem analyser, but not a great problem solver. The heart is the place where you can really allow things to be as they are and be in the present moment. Meditation or dancing or exercise are good ways to quieten the constant mental chatter that goes on.

My mind is saying 'You need to be doing something to make progress ie. more writing, arranging meditation meetups' - and the latter has been an idea of mine, which I'd still like to do but my fears about no-one ever coming and subsequently causing all my insecurities to flare up were lurking, so I've put that to one side .. for the time being. If only it was easy not to take things personally .. As for writing, I'm still doing blog posts but I've been emotionally drained on and off for a little while now, so my life story has not had much work done on it for the last 2 to 3 months.

I guess I am having thoughts that time could run out, that I'm standing still. But sometimes it is good to do nothing. So I'm just trusting my instincts and doing what I feel like doing.

These are tough times for a lot of us, and many people are far worse off than me. I don't want to make it sound like I'm in a major crisis, because I am definitely not. But I'm feeling all the energies of the planets, like a lot of people, and change is happening rapidly. If we want to see change, it is important to stay present and deal with whatever challenges life throws at us. This year could be a stepping stone into our greatest times yet ...

Well well. This one really has been one of the toughest weeks in a good while. It's pretty rare for me to get too depressed these days, ...
