Law of Transformation Number 7: Relax with What Is.
I was dreading this one.A� I actually read a copy of “40 Days to personal revolution” by Baron Baptiste over Christmas.A� If you had asked me to interpret what was meant by Relax with What Is, I would have responded with order biaxin xl online display pictures of accutane packing resignation.A� This Law of Transformation was telling me to give up and stop trying.A� To realise that I can’t change anything so what’s the point.A� Why waste my energy?A� This is precisely what I wrote about in 40 Day Yoga Challenge – Day 20 & 21.
Three weeks into this challenge and my perspective on re-reading this law has changed dramatically.A� It’s not about changing people, situations or my life but fundamentally about giving myself a break. “God, give us the grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish one from the other.” Baron Baptiste, “40 Days to personal revolution”, p.123.A� I’m being advised to create space between myself and the world that I live in so that I can understand how best to interact with it.
The previous six Laws of Transformation have led me to this point so far:
Law 1: Seek the Truth – Why am I doing this?A� What’s my motivation?A� Where in my life do I not have congruency or harmony.A� How would my life look and feel if I was living in harmony with myself and my environment?
Law 2: Be Willing to Come Apart – I thought I was about as broken as I could be when I signed up for this; physically and mentally.A� But I even had to shed this thought too.A� I had to be willing to unlearn what I thought I knew about where I was at this moment in time.
Law 3: Step out Your Comfort Zone – I pride myself on being willing to try new things.A� But there’s a difference to trying a new recipe and repeatedly going to a class that makes you want to curse and scream (Yin Yoga).
Law 4: Commit to Growth – I can only walk in one direction.A� If I walk towards something then it means I am walking away from something else.A� Walking towards a life full of calm and clarity means walking away from a life of chaos and confusion.
Law 5: Shift Your Vision – What’s my intention and purpose?A� What is it that my conscience is saying to me?A� Am I following my moral compass and am I looking at the big picture or getting caught up in the detail?
Law 6: Drop What You Know – While being injured could be an excuse for not doing anything, I’m using it as a catalyst to listen to what my body truly needs and this has been a humbling experience.
Without these previous six Laws of Transformation I would have totally misunderstood the real meaning behind Law of Transformation 7: Relax with What Is.A� The journey so far has led me to this point where I am comfortable to take a step back and allow things to flow at their own pace.A� My body will heal, my mind will learn to quieten (with more meditation!) and wherever I am right now is where I’m supposed to be.
