[mc src="http://podcast-qt.s3.amazonaws.com/yofa-vortex-11-11-09.mp3"/] Abraham (www.abraham-hicks.com) has been teaching us one exquisitely simple lesson for many years now. In fact, the word "simple" is a very accurate word for the teaching because one of the meanings of the word "simple" is "single."
Abraham teaches us that there is a single flow of well being. One stream.
Now here is the part where the whole living of your life unfolds.
At any given moment, you are either allowing that stream or resisting it.
Can it be any simpler than that?
Abraham has been giving us process after process to help us do the only thing that we need to do in order to live a joyful, satisfying life. And since there are only two ways that we basically interact with the stream of well being (which is that we can allow it or resist it), there are two ways to express our job in life. We can say that all we need to do in any situation is to allow the stream. The other way to phrase it is to say that all we need to do is to release our resistance to the stream of well being.
So, when Abraham talks about the Vortex, and how to get into the Vortex, we can understand that this is the same as being in the allowing mode.
You can apply this to anything that is going on in your life.
From relationships, to body conditions, to politics, to grandma's cookie recipe, you can always tell whether you are allowing or resistant by the way you feel.
And so, what happens after a while is that you realize that it is your state that matters much more than the subject of your focus.
So let's say you look at a political situation that angers you. You feel like people are abusing their power and you don't like the decisions they are making. The tendency is to get more deeply involved in the subject matter.
Now, I think you can see that taking action from a place of negative emotion is all out-of-the-vortex-action and it is very inefficient.
It becomes clear that your primary work is to get in the Vortex and then let your action be inspired by the joy you experience when you think of what is wanted rather than the anger you feel when you think of what is not wanted.
And when you take action from within the Vortex, you are powerful, effective, and beneficial to everyone who is touched by your plans.
So here's what I'd like you to do:
- Start noticing which subjects in your life seem more important to you than being in the Vortex.
- Start getting into the Vortex on those subjects.
- Notice how rapidly your life transforms.
How do you get in the Vortex? That is not the subject of this particular post, but you'll find the answers in the book The Vortex and you can accelerate the process with the tools at http://HappyintheVortex.com
