“Approach life with an open mind and how-can-we-make-it-work attitude.” An open mind perceives possibilities a closed mind cannot. Openness also invites optimism, allowing positive, workable solutions to surface. Perhaps you can even take it a step farther and allow it to evolve naturally instead of trying to force an outcome. When I allow the momentum of my mother’s impending move to her retirement apartment to carry me, I notice a lighter, easier feel in every action and interaction.
“Use your will skillfully to enhance the creative process rather than inhibit it.” You enhance your creativity when your mind and heart open to receive inspiration, when you feel immersed in the flow of life. You must enter deeper water to switch from wading to swimming.
You can direct the power of your will to fight life, to take constructive action, or to simply to sit with what life brings you. When you oppose what happens you burn energy objecting, often via external complaining or internal grumbling and stress, which sometimes drives less than optimal choices. Constructive action allows you to consciously impact your future. Other life challenges may require relaxing, as best you can, while you consider your next mindful choice.
In Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ), Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 12 supports a shift from your personal will to the soul-supporting Divine will. Following the small will, while often more familiar and thus more comfortable, yields less soul evolution and life satisfaction. When you consent to Divine will and your Higher Self, you access Divine support and acceleration.
When you feel unwilling to face a challenge or difficulty, what do you tell yourself? Can you accept unwillingness until willing arrives?
