Have you ever heard the saying: “The Best Way To Boil A Frog Is SLOWLY”
If you throw a frog in boiling water, it will leap right out.
If you place it gently in cold water and slowly turn up the heat, it will boil alive and never flinch.
That pretty much sums up what happened to me. I described it in the post: “Buy And Accumulate: Lather, Rinse, Repeat.”
I guess I’m not alone. Here’s what Energy Medicine expert Gary Strauss is seeing out there and how to fix it:
A powerful statement from my friend Shawn Brennan in a conversation we had yesterday…
“I’ve come to see that I know I am centered in that I hear what I say as the same message; when in the past I had different messages when I was awake, when I was inebriated, when I was sleepwalking, when I was being manipulative, when I was scared, and when I just didn’t care.”
What if the practice of awakening boiled down to a single behavior — telling the truth?
… first to yourself and then to your world?
When I do this I’m in congruence. Congruence is so freeing because there’s nothing to conceal. It takes energy to conceal. Concealment leaks energy. Energy medicine expert Gary Strauss has some cool thoughts on how others can pick up on whether or not you’re being congruent no matter what you say or don’t say:
What has me lie? My attachment to outcomes. When I’m pushing for a specific result that I think I must have I begin to need to frame things a certain way to control what’s so.
It’s so freeing to let that go and just trust what’s so, SEE what’s so and stop hiding from what is.
It’s really beautiful when I have enough grace to say my truth with gentleness, love and respect for others.
