Everyday Trances

Everyday life is a trance state that we often don't know we are in. The rhythms of what we do hooks us into a sense of reality. We often forget that we have free will and can change that reality. Who says that we have to keep it that way?

Trance is effective when we have repetitive tasks to do. Routine work just flows along when we are in a trance groove.

Notice also how in spiritual rituals there is always some repetition in the things we do to create the trance state that alters our focus, our reality, so that the ritual will flow.

Trances in themselves are neither good nor bad. They just are. When we recognize them, we can decide if we want to stay in them. When we have work to do, whether it is the trade your time and energy for money kind of work, or the just doing something because you like it kind of work, we expand our efficiency and our satisfaction with what we do by using trance as a tool to achieve goals. Rhythm is the key. Find the rhythm and use it.

In all of life there is a rhythm. In all of the things we want to do or need to do, there is a rhythm. Find it and you will be happier. Find it and you will love your life.
