This morning, I share a nugget of powerful wisdom from Richard Rudd, the author of my favorite book ever - The Gene Keys.
"The Lost Art of Doing Nothing
When your life force is aligned correctly, you will discover that there is a vast amount of energy available to you... exhaustion becomes a thing of the past.
The 40th Gift of Resolve is about becoming adept at giving to yourself. Ultimately it is about deep physical relaxation. It is that wonderful balance between serving the world and serving your own enjoyment. True resolve is not possible until you know how to relax. Many people in the hectic modern world mistake the word rest with the word relaxation. We all need rest, yet perhaps even more, we need relaxation. Rest allows the physical body to recharge, but relaxation allows all of our subtle bodies to recharge as well. When we relax fully, our emotional and mental health is assured as well as our physical health.... Life was never designed to be as hard as we humans sometimes make it. ...The 40th Gift then is a Gift that knows how to save energy at all levels. It knows the great mystical importance of wu wei, the timeless art of doing nothing.
For a person with the Gift of Resolve, nothing is really an effort because nothing has to be forced. These people may work extremely hard and use a great deal of energy, but they do not exhaust themselves. They know when to stop, and more importantly they know when to say no. Work that is in harmony with your true nature is not really work at all. In this sense, it doesn't require willpower. Resolve means that willpower is built into the activity from the outset, so it flows effortlessly out of you rather than having to be forced.
Resolve is more than just willpower or determination: it is the flowering of your Aloneness. This 40th Gift thrives on solitude. The source of all your power lies in your love of being alone. This does not mean to say that you always have to be alone. it means that you do not suffer from loneliness because your life force is constantly in the process of giving birth. This inner abundance gives terrific strength to your aura and is likely to make you much sought after by others. This 40th Gift ensures that you also always have enough time, space and enjoyment for yourself."
Such a beautiful invitation to explore aligning with our life force. I find that meditation is my definition of "Aloneness." It's a space that allows me to pause and truly relax, finding and enjoying my own energy in a quiet cocoon.
I invite you to pause and create a cocoon for your Self and explore your Aloneness. xoxo
