Last night I while watching the movie “Gatsby” I was reminded of our ability to be both “within” and “without” as we move through our daily lives. All too often we go outside of ourselves and depart from “center”, which in essence shifts the balance AND our clarity.
There are your inner workings, your thoughts, feelings and emotions then there is what goes on in the world around you. It’s easy to get caught up in those things outside of you and out of your control but the reality is when you return to center there is no “inside” or “outside” there is balance and a sense of neutrality. From center you get to observe as well as take part in life.
Your center is a neutral, safe, quiet place where you are in balance with your life. It is free of “energetic charge” and puts you in control of your choices. When you are centered you run your life, it doesn’t run you. From center you are aware of the “within” AND the “without”. You begin to recognize what is your truth and what is not. You experience harmony within and notice that perhaps the drama and chaos is not really yours.
Each time you return to center you connect mind, body, spirit and soul. You connect with truth, inner guidance and greater awareness. Returning to center allows you to experience an ebb and flow of joy, your divinity, your strength. It allows you freedom to be you and the joy that comes with being yourself. It brings you back to YOU.
Yes, you will go “without” from time to time for a lesson or experience but each time you do that you are truly going “without” because you are going without you. When you go outside of yourself to find an answer, have an experience or learn a lesson return to center with all you have observed, learned and experienced and return to the rhythm and beat of your heart and soul. ~Shine Your Light Debbie
