A former client recently dropped a book in to me. A book that she had completed earlier that week. She wanted me to share in her reverie, of what was increasingly making sense to her new state of being, and her continued development.
It's a book by James Wallman, called Stuffocation, Living More With Less. It fundamentally focusses on the process of decluttering.
And, for me, it called to mind that place of constant stuffocation, of accumulating, and of excessive busyness, that is diminishing to humanness. And clearing it. For uplifting.
Many of you may be more regularly in that place of creating, or re-creating, in a dynamic of change that is accelerating. Working out how to live valuably daily while staying focussed on where you're heading, what you're needing and wanting, and how you're continually creating a new reality.
And it may be tempting to accelerate and maintain a process of moving more rapidly, competitively, aggressively, anxiously on all cylinders, constantly.
Before the river is ready.
Suffocating, and Stuffocating, the necessary process of it falling into place more swimmingly, peacefully.
Slowing down, a little more patiently, for the current to run through, and with you, more easily, for your part in the play unfolding, helps you achieve it more consistently.
Allowing the ducks line up, so that the process falls into place increasingly effortlessly.
Letting go of what's not important, patiently, and creating space for opportunity as it comes knocking.
Just as any organisation goes through life cycles, so do people, in lifespan development, and energetic attunement.
And where you are on your lifespan, and what you are experiencing, can be complimenting or contradicting your fulfilment and well-being, and the well-being of those around you.
A delicate balance of decluttering internally, and externally, regularly, assists you to recalibrate your emotional and cognitive experiences, so you can let go to the bigger process, more gracefully.
Spending time validly identifying and clarifying attitudes, beliefs, patterns, behaviours, things, systems, that are inhibiting your ideal next stage of happiness development, is of benefit. Reviewing. Attuning. And then, detaching.
A well executed internal restructure, can be a brilliant circuit breaker, to avoid being too exhausted to glide easily into your next stage of development.
Let go, and breathe, regularly. Float above your experiences to look at the bigger picture of your life, scope the map out, the values and vision you wish to create, and mindfully and heartfully, act, right timingly, with the changes you will accommodate.
Have a good look at where things are at, and declutter progressively. Ongoing little steps, every few months, taking a stocktake, makes a big difference. It is a great way to stay ready for the next opening, so you are better able to accommodate and embrace opportunities co-operatively as they present in a changing dynamic.
Make way for the good and great you wish to cultivate. Because From Little Things, as Paul Kelly so adeptly sings, Big Things Grow.
