If we don’t , we just spiral further down into frustration.
Most people are more or less programmed to always be on the go, to always do something, to always be active and so on but we all also have low energy days.
Days when there’s no inspiration whatsoever to do anything, no motivation either, and things just simply feel flat and life-less.
So what do most people do?
They get frustrated about it, even depressed or angry.
Some get into self-pity thinking they are doing something wrong or that they are being punished or hindered by some outside force.
Depression, frustration, anger.. but not because of the low energy days themselves but because of the resistance to them.
That’s where the suffering comes from.
There is a solution to this though and here it is:
Surrender to it. Try to enjoy this phase and do nothing.
Do nothing about anything and enjoy it.
Take a day off.
Let it all go and accept that it’s part of the flow to go into these quiet phases where nothing seems to happen and there is no aliveness.
Just experience everything without judgment, without resisting, without trying to change it.
Stop struggling against the natural flow of your life
It’s time to take it easy and this is how life lets you know.
The suffering and frustration come when we judge these phases as bad or wrong and even worse if we fall into the trap of believing that we’re being lazy and useless.
What is needed is to surrender.
Surrender to the experience of being uninspired, tired, and lethargic.
Allow yourself to let go of the need to change or “fix” anything.
Just have the experience, allow it to be.
You’d be amazed how quickly things change when resistance is let go of!
The change we’re looking for comes from relaxing into doing nothing and instead let ourselves fall into the natural flow of things.
This is when positive change can happen, and it happens naturally and all by itself as soon as we have let go of the tiller and stopped struggling against the tides of life.
So chill – and be amazed
