Living well is about alignment, accord. Integrity, sincerity, spontaneity. One with how things need to be, inner with outer. Being aligned with your core and the flow of life/vitality day to day. Joseph Campbell like to say, "We know when we are on the beam, and when we are off it." Being on the beam is the place to be, the being place, inner with outer, core with the flow of vitality in our life. Where do you go-- what do you do-- to put yourself in the flow of life/vitality? What has vitality for you? What brings you to life when you are doing it? Riding a horse? Sitting by the ocean? Reading poetry? Listening to/playing music? Everyone has their "Being Place," or several of them, where they can "just be" and "let things be" as they are for a while or forever. Places where we restore our connection with our heart and soul, where we are who we are, doing what is ours to do, and all is right with our world. And then, there is that which takes all of that away. What knocks us off the beam? I cut newspapers and television out of my life and am better off for it. I have reduced the amount of time I spend in crowds and traffic. Noise, complexity, drama, trauma do me in, so I leave them out. Emptiness, stillness, silence, solitude restore my heart/soul connection, so I seek them out. We have to draw our own lines, set our own limits, create our own space for life, vitality, heart, soul. And, it is essential that we do that, and live with allegiance, loyalty and devotion to life, vitality, heart, soul. And let things fall into place around that.
