What needs you to do it with the gifts that are yours to serve and share-- in each moment as it arises, here and now? You don't have to go big with it. Go small. What needs you to do it out of your original nature, knowing what you know, being who you are without trying to profit in any way, just doing what needs to be done, where it needs to be done, when it needs to be done, how it needs to be done, in each situation as it arises in the next hour, say, or between now and the next mealtime. Narrow your focus to what needs to be done here and now. What is it, not because someone else might think so, but because you think so? What do you say needs to be done here and now? Do that. Again and again. And again. All day. Every day. It's never more difficult than this.
Reduce complexity! Diminish noise! Wait for the mud to settle and the water to clear! Stillness and silence reveal. Commotion and busy-ness conceal. How still can you be for how long? How silent can you be for how long? What comes up in the stillness, in the silence, that you have to escape into action to avoid? Introverts have an easier time than extroverts have, but being quieter longer more often isn't likely to lead to greater realization/awareness than being quiet as long and as often as you can manage. Just making the effort to make room for instinct/intuition/imagination opens doors and windows to the inner world, and magic happens, things begin to stir, connections click into place, life shifts, and we are off on new adventures that we can only experience, but not understand, or understand, but not explain (Sheldon Knopp).
We are not much different from the characters and the drama created by their interaction impacted by their aims and opportunities, in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. We think we are living a normal, rational, logical, sensible life but it is kept up in the air by the frequency of its encounters with complete nonsense presented and honored as though it is Absolute Truth. Astronomy. The Bible As The Literal Word of God. Horoscopes. QAnon. Fox News. Politics. Theology. It is a long list of things seriously claiming a place in our sphere of concern which have no legitimate place whatsoever in anyone's life at all. If all that is nonsense disappeared overnight, it would be a radically different world at dawn. What keeps the nonsense in our lives from disappearing? What is the basis of its unwarranted importance? Why does anyone give it any attention at all? Why can't we recognize nonsense as nonsense? Why are we carried away by what somebody says that is obviously whack-o-bananas? What are we doing participating in the propagation, promotion, encouragement and transmission of nonsense? Why give it any time and attention at all?
Health has been defined as "ease of functioning." I enlarge that phrase to take into account the five elements of health and the five tools for implementing those elements in our life. This, in conjunction with whatever medical intervention may be necessary over the course of our life, will put us on the path to living happily ever after in the glow of "ease of functioning." The five elements are: balance and harmony, spirit, energy and vitality. The five tools are: stillness and silence, instinct, intuition and imagination. Incorporating the five elements and the five tools into our daily practice enables us to face what comes our way and rising to meet every occasion in order to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, the way it needs to be done, because it needs to be done, with the gifts/daemon/shtick/specialties that come with us from the womb and are ours to serve and share without thought of personal benefit or gain in responding spontaneously to the moment of our living in each situation as it arises with exactly what is called for, time after time. If you can do better than that, do it!
