With fall at last upon us, I was reading Mystic Mama’s monthly manifesto the other day when a such simple point struck:
“Too much doing, not enough being”
MM always has fantastic food for soulful thought, but this speaks to receptivity roadblocks that so often pop up amidst the endless humdrum-heavy hassles.
October’s theme is ~ b a l a n c e ~
A constant clash of two states, “doing” is getting caught up in process verses “being” as a means of progress through personal expansion. Cooperating with obligation while simultaneously tending to soulful needs, however, can be the ultimate anchoring force.
A vicious cycle some might say—denial of cosmic cues there for potential support leads to further frustration and subconscious shut-down in return.
So take a minute to stop, breathe and assess:
What are you doing?
What should you be doing?
What should you not be doing?
It’s critical to know when to “do,” yet escape into the “be” as needed.
Echoing the theme is Temperance. With each foot anchored in a different element, it embodies the eloquent mixing of diverging worlds. Tranquility meets receptivity, as we can all strive to thrive in equilibrium.
Invest in the things that spark your heart, and happy officially October to all!
