Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Are Your Organizing Projects Roadblocks Or Roads To Freedom?

I received this great message-- Daily Strategic Attraction Tip- from and I wanted to pass it along to you. What came to my mind when I read this was the huge organizing projects that some of you are facing. I think you'll be able to apply it to any overwhelm you might be feeling. The message is one of acceptance not resistance to what might be in your way. As I've written about before, acceptance is a much more powerful energy than frustration.
"Have you ever had the experience of moving merrily along 'your path' when a massive roadblock suddenly appeared?

More often than not, people will use force and push against the block in hopes of moving it aside. The exertion of effort usually leads to more 'roadblock'...
1. Exhaustion
2. Disappointment and frustration
3. Resignation
All this delay could be avoided if we simply 'surrender' to the roadblock. In the state of surrender, open to the possibility that there may be other paths.

To resist the roadblock would be self-defeating. What if we opened to being grateful that the roadblock appeared and prevented us from going further 'off course'.

Today, let's consider where we may be resisting a roadblock and embrace it. Then, let's notice if your own true path synchronistically 'lights up' before you."
Embrace your organizing projects. See them not as roadblocks, but as opportunities. Then you'll be able to sail through them!
Love To You,
