Watch your energy so that you don’t overdo. Overdoing is responsible for exhaustion, sickness, dis-ease and many other maladies of both body and spirit. To overdo is to overgive of time and energy to things of the world, to people, to duties, to habits, and to things outside of the self so that the self is largely ignored. Tune into the self more often to find out what is the right amount of energy to give to any one person or thing, to any need or desire, to any duty or ritual.
Take care of the self and gain balance in doing so. It’s the only way to maintain good health, good habits, and good mind, body, spirit equanimity.
To advance is to let go of old ideas of the self and others, to free the mind and release the spirit to new ideas and new experiences. To advance spiritually is to be open, with open mind and heart, to the play of life all around you, to the changes and the synchronicities that every day show you that you have the opportunity to change and grow within the self.
Be open and receptive to those changes, and be alert to the signs that come to guide you. Notice what’s happening in your world, and be open to the call that comes to show you the way.
Decide what’s important to you in life, what you desire most or what you no longer need, and work toward achieving your goal or releasing yourself from duties, habits, and attachments that no longer serve your best interest. Or do both, seek something higher and better while letting go of other things that do not serve a higher good. These are the things that a call to a higher spiritual search require as you evolve. Without attachment, learn for yourself what is most important for you and pursue it with courage, fortitude, and impeccability. After all, it’s your life.
Nature’s extremes, her storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, cold, heat, droughts and fires represent a need for drastic change, for release of pressure, for a corrective shift. The same is often needed inside the individual human being and just like in nature extreme conditions may arise. During such extremes look within the self to find the reason for such drastic measures. Everything you need to know lies within the self.
Continue on your path to groundedness in the life you are in, figuring out why you are there, what to do next, and how to make the most of it. Often, life takes over and the unfolding of a day is directed by what is happening around you and outside of you, but you can redirect your attention inward and begin to ask some hard questions that may enlighten and redirect your attention so that those questions may be answered with wisdom from within the self.
Ground yourself in knowing that you have within you all that you need to progress upon a path of change that is lasting and beneficial.
