Action and Inaction

I found Jacqui Cullen’s blog post today on Clarity Tribe, Do you have the courage to stand still thought-provoking. Especially after yesterday when AutoWindscreens, my partner’s employer, publicly announced that it has gone under administration.

We were already counting pennies. With both of us now with uncertain income, there is immediate panic and worry. The fight or flight response kicks in. We’re likely to do things we normally wouldn’t consider, because of this chaos.

The fact is, someone could buy the company, and within a week there could be good news and all will be well again. The fact is, I’m still determined to stick to my guns and continue on a path that feels authentic to my calling. My truth is, in my heart, I know all will be well, and that staying calm is the best thing to do. Staying calm will keep me connected to my intuition, which will guide me. Jacqui’s words about standing still, mean to me that it is necessary to quiet the mind and really listen. The universe will provide. I just need to be still to be sensitive to the nuances of which way it tells me to go in order to find that providence. When the way becomes clear, that is when the action is to be taken.

    That is exactly the moment to stand still, in that very moment when we want to run!

    I believe that it is good to have these fears – fight or flight senarios – they give us a real clue as to what beliefs and emotions are running our lives in each moment. They are there to remind us to ‘let go’ and ‘let God.’

      “Let go and let God”. Yes, that is definitely something to remember at times like these, instead of taking the first opportunity to run away (which is often such a great temptation!).
