Often when we set an intention we are visualizing what it is we wish to manifest for ourselves. We then take action toward creating the outcome we desire. However, all too often we will attempt to turn our actions and efforts into a dynamo of sorts, believing that the more energy we expend the sooner or greater the outcome will be. This notion is deceptive at best.
The process of manifestation is constantly shifting, is dynamic and pendular in its nature. The greatest growth often occurs during times of stillness, such as a seed uncoiling beneath the soil. We may feel that to not constantly be applying effort and action toward our goals will pull us away from seeing them fulfilled, yet constant application and unyielding effort can throw us completely out of balance.
Manifestation is comprised of components that match our desires as well as components that may seem counter to what we envision. A score of music is defined both by the notes it contains as well as the notes that are absent from the music. An athlete is able to expend a great deal of energy during a sporting event after rebuilding energy reserves during a good night’s sleep.
The road toward successful realization of our desired outcomes is paved with blending and balance. While there are great merits to hard work and diligence, a lack of balance through rest, play, and stillness puts us at risk of consuming our reserves to the point of burnout. It may feel as if this could slow down our rate of travel on our journey, but a carefully paced path will ensure we arrive much more intact.
