The seed of a tree draws upon its roots to find moisture and nutrition, and reaches the heights by way of the sun. At first, one branch. Then two branches. And exponentiating till all the information contained in its whole, is a reflection of that contained within its parts.
We are not separate to nature. It is reflected in and of us. The power of exponentiation that we are a part of, is in us too. So to grow, succeed, and be inevitable in our aspirations–is to embrace that which is innate. To take the fractal from within, and allow it to expand indefinitely without.
The structure of nature is the divine in disguise. We do not need to seek the highest of enlightenment, worship a deity, or be formally schooled. We can simply move with the unfolding of what is in front of us. In the moment and for the moment.
Though we can enforce our will upon Life, we can be only as much applauded for the little dent we make in the fabric of the natural order. The natural order instantly establishes an equal and opposite form of realignment.
The strongest current on the beach that can drag the greatest of swimmers out to sea, is adjacent to a set of oncoming waves. Oncoming waves that can drag even a ship to shore. The swimmer who resists, retires and drowns. The wiser swimmer floats along, and conserves his energy for the opportune moment to reach the shores, by way of catching the waves.
The purest pursuit is not to solely assert, but to also align.
Resistance is a human being’s simple call to nature to be re-directed for another use. And so nature shall respond with precision. The face of the strongest cliff will be smashed, weathered, and disintegrated by thunderous waves–distributing sediment to the sea below, to form sand. Meanwhile, the sand grains of the sea are taken for a lovely world tour. One stands to face a force. The other is simply taken on adventure with full force. This is the structure of flow.
But there is a distinction here. Flow is not the lack of conflict. Flow invites the necessary forms of conflict to preserve the natural order. One that is inevitable. War, fights, opposition, and arguments are side-effects of nature’s infallible act—equanimity.
Whether conscious or innate, we can experience flow by aligning ourselves through our understanding of self and our unique tendencies. And to embrace our natural impulses to the fullest we can, with ever-progressing moments. Your special nature is a path free of pause.
Like water is beautiful in the way it doesn’t need to be told to take the path of least resistance. So a fish does not need to force itself to swim so finely in it. Like air does not need to be told to fill the greatest voids, heat will always distribute itself to what is cooler. And, a star does not need to be told it is burning hot and bright. Yet we are taken by wonder as it burns through the night.
Flowers will grow in spring. Leaves shall fall in autumn. Nothing out of place, nothing out of phase.
If you are potent with ideas and compulsively see visions of innovation, you will feel like a caged bird if forced to document detail after detail by the day. This will induce stress by forcing what is not natural to you–diminishing your energies and sense of health.
Yet if you are obsessively attune for order, organization and reconciliation–you may find yourself in delight at the opportunity to privately indulge in detail. However, in this case, if we were to force you to the stages to perform in public for the remaining of your years–you just might find your heart palpitating.
So it is the same with human purpose. Each of us have a unique set of lines to fulfil in the fabric of this material reality. If you work a job, but have a vision to adventure to the highest of mountain peaks–you will only tolerate so much stress, boredom and anxiety before you are booted to embrace your calling.
Life will send your way, all forms of challenges and curses disguised as blessings–mirroring the original intent and seed that you planted for this incarnation. And the greater you oppose that which you incited, the louder the knock on the door gets. Inevitably, you will find yourself on the way to the peaks you belong.
Growth and fulfilment are inevitable.
Though the execution may be equally as challenging, Life’s resources will respond to your order; money, companions, chance meetings, and synchronicities present themselves to you.
The One that resides in All, does not succumb to the doom and gloom of the main sentiment., Nor become overly optimistic and infatuated. Bombarded by illusive media, confusing fact, and perceived authority–simply returns to the basics …
Self-reliance, Self-inquiry and Self-discovery; free of Self-inflicted deceit. Align in face of life’s fluctuations and find that which is eternally valid.
By choosing and experiencing through aeons on the mortal plane, we can find that when all else fails and chisels away—there are still threads in life’s tapestry that stay.
Human by Choice,
