The Path of Least Resistance

Have you ever experienced a powerful feeling that seemed stuck in one gear, but then once your perspective shifts, the attitude lightens up and energy starts moving again?

Energetic shifts require a looseness rather than a tightness. Stepping back and seeing from another point of view suddenly gives traction.

When we try too hard to make something happen, we find ourselves forcing a fit. It is like trying to do a job properly without having the proper tools. You know how it is when you are trying to put something together and do not have the right size screwdriver or wrench?

Energy works the same way. It is the difference between making something happen and allowing something to happen. Things can happen with great power and great force if you just step back and let things move along the path of least resistance.

Have you had times when you could just smile and radiate out energy and make light conversation with people that they are drawn to you? Have you noticed how that can work better than a hard sell? Have you noticed how sometimes when you are getting frustrated looking for something that it suddenly turns up when you quit stressing over it and quit digging around and upending things?

It sometimes happens to me while writing, when I am stressing over what to write about, then I step away, relax and come back, and the words flow.

How have you experienced this in your life?
