Our Power Is Decided in An Instant

How many times have we heard or used the phrase “that’s just the way it is” to describe something disappointing or overwhelming?  Even though it’s crying out for a solution?  We might see the issue as too big or too complicated to unravel or do over.  We heave a sigh and tell ourselves to accept what’s happening, let it go; what is, is.

It’s our energy in the “is-ness,” though, that determines our power.

If we accept the situation, we feel a sense of stop, loss, defeat and concession.  There’s an “oh, well…” helplessness in the end.   If we do not resist it, we feel a “go forward” opening as we recognize and acknowledge.  We’re not pushing back against what is – we just “get it,” release it, and move on, looking toward what’s possible, doable and where we can go from here.  Depending on our view, that energy crossroads offers “stop” or “go.”  And in that instant, our power is decided.

It took the Universe 14 billion years to make this moment and pushing back against it is a fool’s mission leading to certain defeat.   We can see it as a place to close down or open up.  The choice is ours.

“Self care is never a selfish act – it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have. The gift I was put on earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give it the care it requires, we do so not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.” - Parker Palmer
