Time, Space and Energy
Jun 01, 2015
I had an interesting chat with my acupuncturist about time, space and energy. According to him it is an old Chinese thought. I felt it is appropriate to share because I think it can help relieve stress and anxiety.
Basically, all three elements have to be aligned for things to work out. Sometimes the timing is off, other times the energy is not right and occasionally the space to make it happen does not exist.
If you keep these elements in mind it helps you deal with situations. I know that on one level we want what we want when we want it. However, as life has shown us, that is not always possible. In fact, there is a saying that the more you chase after something the harder it is to catch it.
Don’t let life make you crazy, as it will affect your health in a taxing way that will lead to nutrient depletion, and that will lead to ill health.
Let life unfold with a gentle urging from you so that you are always moving in the direction that you want to go. You should not sit back and just let things happen. Active participation is always better than passive acceptance.
What are you working on today? What are you trying to accomplish? Remember, everything requires time, space and energy. Allow it to manifest.
