The moment when you are on a call with a professional (who might read this) talking about your professional self and they drop "in the moment".
I bit on that, and....
The conversation language changes immediately and communication flows freely. Massive upgrade arrives to find two like minds and the discussion continues at a completely different level. Talked about the dichotomy of substances and happiness.
Spurred some thoughts...
First off, I could have easily have missed this opportunity to grow by not acting on the intuitive hit (thanks John) to follow the notion this person might be more like me than we know yet. This speaks to something I will get back to, but first ....
It is one thing to "run into people" at the farmer's market, or that shop where they sell the white sage, or where perhaps you go yoga or something like that.
It is another, when you get a bank teller (happened) and a man like the one I just talked to, and will be speaking with again very soon, like today.
Regardless of how long this has been coming, it certainly is easy to move/stay in this space with the right tools. Those are all found in you, and when you use them you never know what might happen.
Because remember, it is, indeed, happening.
But you have to give and receive to find this out there. Being of a positive mindset and doing nothing, by your definition, then what ARE you doing? What do you really even control beyond yourself?
Nothing is the easy answer, it stacks up well with all kinds of spiritual spins, but in the end doing nothing is stagnation and a stagnate pond is nowhere anyone wants to swim.
Someone I love to listen to said last night (in a recorded) video I was watching that being overly positive in the masculine was not going to get you fucked. He meant it like that too since he was talking Sacred Masculine, and he is right.
There is no substance there. Nothing has no substance. Being happy is one thing, but a sense on accomplishment is only gained by moving forward.
Take charge of yourself and engage the world to make it happy don't just sit on social media talking about happy you are.
I talk about happy here all the time. But when I am not I am in sessions where that is not the case, and I have plenty of my own quirks at times too--we all do.
Don't fake being happy, do be happy. Be sure you are actively trying to make this happy world we talk about happy-er.
There are plenty of people I could have talked to on the phone today who are not happy. Look at it like this, perhaps you can make up for them by being happy and doing happy.
However it is in your capacity, perhaps try to make another happy. Be there for the heart of another. See yourself in the heart of another. When you find kindred speaks celebrate that and validate the happiness by doing and just being.
The happy man returns from the hunt with the kill for the boys at home.
Sitting happy waiting for it to happen and you might miss the meal, the point in the call to really have a conversation, or whatever. You miss out on life. And if you identify as masculine, forget it, you are stacking the cards against yourself.
