Once a month or so, I used to offer inspirational talks which I called "Illuminations" at both Planet Earth Rising in Folsom and the former East West Books in Sacramento. Each time, I offered some thoughts about the experiences we are having as we spiritually evolve as well as things we can do to help ease our discomforts.
For example, at this time of awakening, we are growing and expanding so much (though it may not seem like it) that we are completely wiped out; a lot like a newborn baby who is growing and expanding so much that all it can do is eat and sleep all day! In fact, it takes so much energy to do this vast amount of physical growing, that we simply allow babies to do those two basic things – eat and sleep – and not much else. If you are experiencing this sense of exhaustion, give yourself permission to ease up on yourself and allow yourself to “do nothing” if at all possible.
During one of my talks at Planet Earth Rising, I suggested the idea of “doing nothing.” Soon after, one of the attendees emailed me seeking more clarity about this suggestion. I responded to Aaron, a Folsom resident, in a return email, which he has been gracious enough to allow me to share with others.
For some of you, perhaps "doing nothing" is a new concept that is asking to be considered in your own life at this time. If you can consider how much you are expanding on the “inside” maybe you can allow yourself to “do nothing” on the “outside.” For others, this may be the perfect time to review this concept.
For clarity, I've identified Aaron's email with an A (and italics). Note that it was written in one blanket email. My “answers” are identified with a V and, when I responded to him, were inserted into his email - as it is formatted below.
Thanks again, Aaron, for letting me share our email conversation with others!
