Claim who you are, the essence of your Self, established in and by Love. Your Self shines with the strength, beauty, and power of its essence, Love. As you open to your Self, accept your Self, and Love your Self, the Life of Unity infuses all your activity and transforms your consciousness. Life as your Self renews your Joy and restores your trust in Life itself.
I like patterns. I like identifying constancy within change. I like the predictability of a pattern, and the learning opportunity if it changes. This is true for me whether the pattern is material or spiritual, though spiritual patterns are much more elusive.
In a way, patterns are a study in observing cause and effect. “If I do this, I get this result”. If I change this slightly…what happens?
I am currently at a point in one of my own patterns in which I think I know what I should be doing, but it’s hard to get myself to do it. I feel disconnected, and don’t know what to rely on, or what action will achieve the result I want.
This not knowing or uncertainty is part of a larger pattern of fluctuation between certainty and uncertainty, trust and doubt, feeling like I am in the flow, and feeling really out of sorts.
So what do I do?
I have very basic practices that I rely on. These are my daily practices as well simple prayers/mantras. When I feel this way, I turn to them. If I can just do the minimum, that is good enough.
Generally speaking, I don’t like “just good enough”. I like to advance myself by doing all I can do. But sometimes that does not work. Today is a “just good enough day”…and I’m ok with that. I know my pattern, and I never stay here very long anymore.
