New Operating Instructions: Human Being/DoingPosted by Rhonda Simpson on March 3, 2011 at 9:30am

There was a time when making your life happen by ‘doing’ was the way. After a time of realizing that really wasn’t working, we moved to a time of Being, of allowing, of ‘letting go’ and ‘letting God’ - a time of surrender. In this time, we learned about stillness, about flow, about co-creating with a higher source, about synchronicity, and about faith in the unknown.
The tides are changing once again though, and that fire that is rising within you is being called to action, Though we’ve worked really hard at feeling our way into Being and allowing and waiting for our lives to unfold as the Universe sees fit, the time for waiting is over.
Now we are being folded into a new mix of being/doing that facilitates our will and strengthens (up-levels, really) our partnership with God.
If you are beginning to feel frustration, impatience, or downright rage at the injustice of Life’s offerings culminating within you, you are right on track. These are the forces of change. These are the elements of discontent that are working to dislodge you from a passive stance and propel you into a role of action. The time for Being as we know it is over (for now anyway). The time for doing is on. You are being asked to take your life by the reigns and ‘make’ something happen. Do you feel that? Many feel that momentum building along with the coinciding hands-tied element of not wanting to override the ‘Being-ness’ that they’ve been taught about and coached in. Many have learned to cultivate that synergy of flow and have resolved, at long last, to take their hands off the wheel while letting the Universe direct them. So it may feel somewhat counter-intuitive to step back into the captains helm at this point. It may feel as if you are taking a step backward and falling into old ways of needing to be in control, or as if your allegiance to a surrendered way of being is faltering. But if you really connect with the energies within and become in-tune with the energies all around (cosmic and collective) you will See that taking action is exactly what you are being called to do right now.
All itinerary is subject to last minute change.
Ok, so as your ‘but, but, buting’, understand that the way of the Universe, of nature, IS change. It is ebb and flow; contraction and expansion. So by honoring the urge to ‘do’, to ‘create, ‘make happen’ in your life at the moment, you are honoring, not objecting to, the flow. By honoring your GPS which says “Move, Move, Move! I’m tired of waiting and standing still!”, you are honoring your instinct. By trusting in your Internal Navigational System, and Knowing that it has our best interest at heart, Knowing that it is directing you , you are creating a deeper connection with your Self. By trusting ( and here’s the other component to the equation, and the one that puts the twist on this way of Being and makes it an updated version of the old)- by trusting that Creator will then ‘match your bid’ and take care of the unknowns and the ‘out of your hands’ aspects, you are strengthening your connection with Source.
So here’s the breakdown. You follow your instinct to change, to do, to take action. And then you, as you step into the role of authority of your life, on this new empowered level that is ‘over’ sitting back and waiting for stuff to happen ( for the moment anyway), you then delegate, or command, if you will, that Creator meet you half way and take care of the rest.
Don’t take the seeming resistance of things not lining up or falling into place as a sign that it is not TIME for things to happen or forward movement to occur. Don’t fight your desire to take action, and tear down some walls or storm the city of your dreams. The fire doesn’t lie. It wants you to step up and stand tall and become an active participant in your life. But here’s where many are getting confused. There is the objective, the thing you want (desperately!) to happen in your life. And then there is the obvious ‘out of your hands’ ‘nothing you can do about it’ element which sends us flailing into a stupor of confusion, frustration, and disillusionment at best, making us wonder if we are being asked to step up to and into yet another higher level of surrender. And then again there is this almost disabling discontent, this discord, this downright rage or sorrow that screams ‘NO! I have to do SOMETHING! I can’t just remain idle.’ And to both, the answer is yes.
You are being asked to ‘do’ and ‘be’. You are being asked to surrender and take control. You are being asked to find balance between your will and God’s will. And as you bring this into alignment, as you find your footing with doing your part and letting God do his, you will begin to see the bigger picture as it unfolds. You will begin to regain the feeling of balance and flow.
Stomach issues anyone?
This coordination of wills has everything to do with your power center, located directly within your belly. This explains the need to come into your power by doing, making happen, taking action, But if we’ve learned anything from past mistakes along the way, the imbalance that over-compensating, over-controlling and reluctance to surrender brings is less (by far) than optimal. And if we’ve learned from our time period of allowing and surrendering into Being, we can’t deny the ultimate power (and peace) that’s derived from letting God and letting go. But many have reached a time of feeling that they are wandering in the desert, somewhat helpless or aimless, waiting for the realm of possibilities to unfold and the Powers That Be to give it up already.
So, my friends, it is time to braid. It is time to feel empowered by creating movement and change within our lives while alternately realizing and surrendering what we have control over and what we don’t (think Serenity Prayer).
So this may mean for you that the movement, the shift, the change you’re about to make happen at this time in order to facilitate that fire within that says ‘Do’ is seemingly menial, or tedious even. You may not be able to make happen or magically make appear that new job, new love, new house, or whatever else it is you desire. Many of these larger details of what it is you want may absolutely ( as you suspected, or as may be glaringly obvious) be completely out of your hands. But the movement to get the current rolling is within your realm, and within your means. So what does this mean? This means that if you desire a move- to a new home or a new location- but things aren’t falling into place, then you step into the flow by becoming part of it (actively) rather than waiting on the sidelines. You begin to make preparations. You begin to pack, clear out, take action- on a level that you can. Participate. Play it out. Be proactive- on whatever level you can in this moment. Action is the key word. And it may not be on the level you desire, but it will facilitate the flow and show the Universe that you really are ready; you are stepping up to the plate; you are doing your share.
Just don’t loose sight of the partnership (between you and Creator), and the trust necessary to keep that in tact.
It’s greater balance, this way of being- a 50 You/ 50 God equation; Co-creation, my friends, at its best. Give a little, get a little. And you know that it’s right (what you’re feeling) that it’s Ok to evolve into this higher way of Being. This is you bringing into alignment the doing and the being, the power and the surrender. In breath, out breath directs the prana, directs the flow.
Evolve. Do. Be. Perfect. Now don’t forget to play, and you’re good.
As bodies, we need movement. As beings of nature, we are elements of change, of evolution. It’s really about being in the flow of that, of the process of life that's organic, and allowing the process to become organic for you. If you were a bulb in spring who was ready to shoot through the ground, to sprout, you wouldn’t deny your urge to grow. And as you began to grow, you would naturally know which way to grow- you would grow towards the Light, through the Light, and of (via) the Light. You would have that connection with Source and a trust that that Light would guide you. But you also wouldn’t expect the Light to do the growing for you. You would do that part yourself. So you see how it is totally interconnected, a very symbiotic way of Being that is natural and known. This is what you’re reaching for- this rhythmic way of Being.
Know that, in order to support this Way, you must also allow for preparation. You need to allow yourself to be fertilized by Life as it shapes you into who and what you need to be to be optimal for what it is you want to receive. So it is about letting Life bring you into that balance through the life experiences that will teach, mold, and grow you. And to that you surrender, and you trust, you allow the flow. But now is also a time to tend to your garden, to prepare your soil, to plant your seeds. Now is time to honor the movement within you and bring it out into the world- to manifest your own right as a creator, as the creator that you truly are. It’s time to test those waters by activating your will and making happen what you can. And no matter what your goal or desire, there is something you can do right now, if you’ve got that fire burnin’ within you to DO, to move forward in the direction of your dreams.
If you desire new love, begin with doing something loving for you. The more in love with you you are, the more excellent your new relationship will be, and the higher a vibrational love you’ll call in.
If you want a new job, begin by honing your skills and making an action plan to get working, so that when the Universe ‘drops’ that job into your lap, you’re prepared.
If you want a new home, begin by clearing out the old and decluttering and polishing your life, so that when everything else falls into place, you’re ready to go. (This applies to you as a body and a soul, as well- you simplifying your thoughts and beliefs so that you can expand into a higher-vibrating, more expansive You).
Remember , these are changing times. Your standards are higher now. You no longer want to settle for mediocre or less than. You want the big stuff- the Greatness. So by lining up with it, by becoming a vibrational match, you create fruition. Make sure your soil is as optimal as possible for the fruit you wish to bare.
There is a balance to being and doing. And as you begin to acclimate to this new way, you’ll begin to strengthen your trust in you and in Source and the co-creation of your dreams-come-true begins to flow in a more natural way; You sprouting in time to your drive to become and you growing towards the Light. Symbiosis and flow.
Follow your heart through this, rather than old standards, and you’ll find your Way Home.
Become fully realized as you sink into your knowing and expand outward through creation, manifestation, and maximizing the flow.
To forward movement and co-creation on a higher level!
