What To Do When You Have Lost Your Motivation?
Do you want to improve the world?
I don't think it can be done.
The world is sacred.
It can't be improved.
If you tamper with it, you'll ruin it.
If you treat it like an object, you'll lose it.
There is a time for being ahead,
a time for being behind;
a time for being in motion,
a time for being at rest;
a time for being vigorous,
a time for being exhausted;
a time for being safe,
a time for being in danger.
The Master sees things as they are,
without trying to control them.
He lets them go their own way,
and resides at the center of the circle.
– Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching 29
For everything a Season they say.
Sometimes you feel like it...sometimes you don’t. Sometimes you are jumping out of your skin to create. Other times you can’t get motivated for shit.
There is an Ebb and Flow to Life...a process in everything. We are ever changing...
...and I really Believe it’s best to Surrender to it.
This is a reminder to myself as much as anyone.
I know how easy it can be to beat ourselves up for not being further along or how we “use” to be.
But really try not to.
Cause the murkiness...the idleness...will pass.
You will not always be living in the “in between”...promise.
Spring will come.
So if you’re feeling a little lost now a days I will leave you with that and a quote that I always find useful.
“Nature never rushes and yet everything gets done.”
Until next time,
