Years ago, I started reading Serge Benhayon’s books and attending presentations with him and Universal Medicine. Over time much has changed for me and something that has particularly developed is a strong understanding of the importance of supporting and caring for each other.
A valuable source of assistance in learning to do this has been through reading blogs on the various websites by Universal Medicine students. These blogs have frequently highlighted what I have been feeling and thinking, but perhaps dared not express outwardly before, or the writer has given me new insight into a topic I hadn’t paid much attention to or didn’t know anything about previously. I have felt inspired and appreciative of those who have been willing to share their stories in writing and to readers for their broad ranging comments on articles.
I know I’m not alone in feeling daunted with honestly letting others know what is going on in my head and heart. Verbally expressing myself is often a big step; one filled with trepidation around how others might react. When I have spoken up, experience has taught me that often I have drawn surprising responses from others which has taken relationships to new depths. At other times, I’ve been challenged by reactions from the alternate end of the spectrum.
What I have noted however, is that written expression has its own set of self-imposed trials. While finding the writing of others, especially on the Universal Medicine student websites, often inspirational, I seldom contribute my own written material to such forums. Taking the time to honestly examine why this is the case has proved interesting with reasons including the following:
- Using the excuse of lack of time; telling myself I’ll get to it ‘later’, which of course, doesn’t happen.
- Comparing my level of writing skills to others; thinking that my writing style is boring for readers.
- Baulking when I feel a spark of enthusiasm by assuming the task will be laborious and unpleasant.
- Using negative self-talk to block further progress: “What if my views are deemed repetitive, nonsense, pathetic or just plain silly and therefore subject to ridicule?” or “Will others respond kindly and with interest or react aggressively to what’s been written, and I’ll end up humiliated and embarrassed?”
- Feeling concerned about the permanent nature of the written word with no control over where it ends up and the possible subsequent implications of this occurring.
When I stop and look back at what I have written here, it’s glaringly obvious that all my excuses are imbued with a desire to maintain the current status quo where written expression is concerned. Yet, if the writing scope is broadened from me in my individual self-protection mode to considering how my behaviour impacts on others, this avoidance seems indulgent, selfish and childish. It’s like I am expecting the world to support me while I go on a permanent holiday. However, placing writing in a compartment and treating it as separate from the whole, directly contradicts my values in terms of caring for and supporting others. I know that my behaviours impact either negatively or positively on others and therefore contribute to the overall quality of the world we live in.
At a societal level, our concern for the welfare of others affects how we care for our children, rates of illness and disease, how and where governments spend money, what’s legal and so forth, because collectively the standards accepted by the majority become the norm. While I can’t singularly change world environments, I know that it’s important that I play my part fully and that every little step counts.
The way I walk, talk, my level of openness and genuineness etc. all affect the quality of my relationships with myself and others. It can be a very warm, loving experience… or the opposite. When in reaction, the anger, defensiveness, blame, judgement, criticism etc. often feel like a physical blow to not just myself, but also for the other person. How can people stop to question the quality of the standards that are being set if there is nothing available to spark their awareness of how everything is interconnected to the whole, and that it’s up to us all to play our part in creating the type of world we would like to live in? Wouldn’t all this make it even more important that I made the time and effort to write and share it in the public domain?
The more I examined my excuses for not writing, the more I have learnt about myself and my relationship with others and the world. When I let go of this avoidance, including any attachments around the outcomes with the finished product, I now realise I am offering so much more than what it appears to be on the surface.
For instance, there is a level of intimacy and openness offered through a willingness to let others in, which is essentially what I am doing when I write something that others are reading. Readers can feel the quality in which I have shared my views; it’s like there is a certain vibration that invites a response from the reader. Of course it’s up to them if and how they respond, but the important thing is that I have offered an alternate ‘menu’ around a topic for others to consider. I have no way of knowing where others are at in their lives, so possibly what I write about is something they have been grappling with also. Perhaps this is the support they were looking for elsewhere but were unable to find? What might the ripple effect of this be? And what’s the impact of my holding back due to my own concocted box of beliefs etc.? Is that not irresponsible and simply adding to the current high levels of individual isolation for myself and others?
When I take this broader view and value writing as something that offers opportunity for both self-development and a form of service for humanity, I can feel the shifting of a self-imposed load off my shoulders that allows a spacious lightness and flow to enter. In the expansion my perceptions are sharpened.
This emerging capacity to take a helicopter view and consider things from this grander vantage point has undoubtedly been enhanced by the support offered through Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon, fellow Universal Medicine students and practitioners. The seeds sown by this group of fellow travellers, who have committed to writing and sharing their wisdom, just highlight even more to me how important our expression truly is compared to the defeated sounds of silence.

My Relationship with Writing
Healing through Writing and Expressing

There really are many excuses/barriers we present, some of which Helen listed , ‘ Using the excuse of lack of time; telling myself I’ll get to it ‘later’, which of course, doesn’t happen.
Comparing my level of writing skills to others; thinking that my writing style is boring for readers.’
Helen I’m with you about how others may feel with our expression, it’s a biggie for me. Afraid or worried that it may not be accepted and when it is accepted, then I am feeling good about myself. It’s since meeting Serge Benhayon has my expression evolved and I’ve learnt to express from within me. What I found that when I calculated or calibrated with an expectation, my expression would be affected and later left wishing or thinking I had said this or said that. When I express from within my body, and the words just flow out, with no hesitation or expectations/outcomes, I’m left feeling, I said what was needed and feel complete.
I’m finding the more I express, the more I learn about myself and where others are at. Learning to not to hold back is so supportive for everyone including me and in this, I realise more and more that expression is everything and in everything…
Expressing from our Essences, Inner-most-hearts / Souls opens us to a plethora of wisdom that can only be shared when we are connected to this innateness that has always been within.
Greg there’s a contentment when we express from our souls, because it isn’t for us to keep or own, it is for the all – that’s what I love when expression comes from our essence.
One step at a time, one word after another. When we say or write something and then let go of the ownership of what we have expressed it is for others to react, respond or be inspired.
When we allow ourselves to be totally honest in our expressions, then this liberates us from the societal incarcerations of how things should or should not be. I still find it hard to be completely open and honest all of the time, especially in certain situations, as it requires a certain surrender to situations that I am still giving myself space to learn and allow. But when I do allow the total openness, I can feel the difference in the quality and in the way I feel afterwards, regardless of the physical/temporal outcome or perceived success of the situation.
Helen I love how you have made it about the quality of your expression and how much this actually impact on your life but equally so on the life of others.
Every opportunity to speak, to write, to sing, to draw and even to move is an opportunity to express that which naturally what lies deep within.
Yes if we really do have something to say, that is if we feel impulsed to say something, and then don’t we can feel defeated and this drop in our energy impacts everything thereafter until we choose to come out of the doldrum we have created for ourselves.
Reading this has confirmed to me that I need to get on with writing. My biggest issue is the comparison to how others write and mine won’t be good enough.
I feel everyone has their unique expression and this expression serves everyone and it could be in the simplicity of just one word.
Like anything, consistency and commitment is the key to bringing about change.
Silencing ourselves in expressing the love that we are is against out nature and at the end very, very exhausting.
Yes it is attack against ourselves…..very much like the way cancer works.
Our auto-immune conditions are all about the body fighting itself, symbolically so. The body speaks loudly to us and lets us know when we are not choosing something that is deeply nurturing and loving for self and others equally so.
When we attack ourselves, we can be pre-disposed to get an auto-immune condition, which is simply the body attacking itself.
In holding back the love we hold to be expressed, we allow space for the opposite, for the bullying, controlling and abusive ways of expression with we see so much in our nowadays societies. And when we look in history we will find that this is the case already for thousands of years.
Wise words Nico, for expression cannot truly be stopped – if we simply choose not to express our natural love and tenderness and put a stop to that, then another form of expression must take over which then allows the separatism, the violence, and the bullying etc in all its obvious but also far more subtle ways, to come through. It is one or the other, as there is not middle fence to stand on.
Whatever we choose will have an impact on the world, how do we choose to impact the world, ‘I know that my behaviours impact either negatively or positively on others and therefore contribute to the overall quality of the world we live in.’
Such a great sharing on how we get in the way of simply being transparent and open. I know I absolutely love it when people are like this, especially in public domains like social media it’s so endearing and loving.
Reading the bullet points for what gets in the way of writing, I see the impact of our education systems – leading people from a natural propensity to express to a fear of in some way ‘getting it wrong’. If this is the case for many of us then surely we need to urgently review our education system.
There is a tendency to comment negatively on peoples expression in writing because it needs to fit in a certain pattern or plan and not to forget all grammatical rules you then have to comply with. People can comment on these minor things compared to the gold that is expressed and with that can crush the expression and make it of not being important.
Even when it’s about the same topic, every expression comes with a certain nuance and personal angle which allows another to get just what they need to get, in the correct dosage and at the right time.
I totally agree with this. Everyone’s particular expression adds to our understanding and insight into life.
Your list of self imposed trials is a very familiar one Helen highlighting just some of the excuses we can use to not write for public eyes. But when writing flows through a connected body, it is not for us to dictate what we write or who reads it, as it is always for everyone, whatever they make of it. And I know when I write in this way, I can look back at what I have written and really question how I wrote what I wrote because I know that it couldnt have come from my thinking mind.
Being in relationship with ourselves is the spark that encourages us to notice the little things that have a big ripple effect on the world. It is by not choosing to see those ‘little things’ that allows the atrocities we see and react to and then feel it is too overwhelming to do anything about.
Very good point Lucy, it’s easy to get overwhelmed but the power of us taking responsibility for our expression in every area of our life is huge.
And each step counts, ‘The way I walk, talk, my level of openness and genuineness etc. all affect the quality of my relationships with myself and others. It can be a very warm, loving experience… or the opposite.’
I have a sense that I am not far from the truth if I said that most of us came to Universal Medicine thinking ‘health and well-being’, and who would have thought that writing had anything to do with it?? But it does, and actually nothing in life escapes from it as it is a One spherical life.
Love this line – “all my excuses are imbued with a desire to maintain the current status quo”. I wonder if we were all so honest about our excuses, about a myriad of situations, as to what we would find out. A lot I would guess are about maintaining the status quo. And really, when you think about it, the status quo is not doing very well at the moment and really needs some love-shaking-up.
It’s beautiful to know more about what is going on for people, because more often then not, it’s something that we too have experienced and gives us a point of commonality and connection.
Yes I remembered at work once when a visiting colleague came by my desk and asked how I was, and I answered very honestly which was a bit anxious at that time. He then opened up and was very honest with me too and it was a heart-warming connection that could not have happened if I had just responded ‘fine thanks’ and he had done the same. We shared what was going for us.
Allowing ourselves to feel the lightness in our writing, is a gift for everyone, including ourselves. Every element of our expression has the potential to make us energetically lighter, or heavier, spacious or dense.
We give as much as we receive in turn, if not more. Energy is never stagnant and nor does it have any man-made borders.
This is so true Chris. And whatsmore, is that if we hold back what we feel by not expressing, whatever way that maybe, then we are potentially not giving others an opportunity to see or understand that there is possibly more to life than they were previously aware of.
We can make a fuss about anything that we dont want to do, when basically we dont want to take responsibiltiy for it.
I love this phrase – “how important our expression truly is compared to the defeated sounds of silence”. Those inaudible and muffled sounds of the silenced ones speak of a deep level of given-upness that keeps being cemented over lifetimes.
I agree, this phrase is gold : “how important our expression truly is compared to the defeated sounds of silence” – it reminds me of the dawning realisation I had that my expression is really important to the world because I am an integral part of its wholeness and if I’m not expressing, in every way, as impulsed, then I’m letting the whole down by not playing my part in it. Its a responsibility! I have been one of those defeated ones and convinced myself there was no point – what a trick!
All of our expressions are a valuable part of the whole, ‘I have felt inspired and appreciative of those who have been willing to share their stories in writing and to readers for their broad ranging comments on articles.’ I agree.
Thank you, Helen, for writing about the avoidance of expression in the written form. I myself have been looking at the areas of life I hold back on and writing a blog and getting it published is one of them. So, there is no accident finding this blog this morning.
Yes, it’s interesting to see the areas we hold back on, and look at why.
Beautiful Helen, your last sentence brings it so clearly back to responsibility, we can be in and with those defeated sounds of silence or we can stand up and speak and write and one thing I realised reading here today is that in writing we offer ourselves and our world to a wider audience, one that goes well beyond our circles and one that reaches places we might now imagine … I feel the importance of writing which I too have been avoiding, thank you for reminding me.
Writing is our modern cave painting, allowing us to express how we are living.
Yes and much like cave painting, we leave a legacy behind for all to read and learn from for generations to come.
Great to read this again today Helen, and it’s true that we can have many reasons why we should not express, but we need to consider the many benefits for ourselves and others when we do. Your final words about the “defeated sounds of silence” sum up how we give up on expression without realising the true power we can bring to the world by lovingly speaking up and sharing how we feel. All the reasons I had that felt legitimate to not get my blog published were exposed as having no substance at all when I went through with it, prior to this the beliefs and pictures around what could happen if I did this were something I was giving my power away to.
Even though at our core we wouldn’t wish any torment onto another, it is always very sobering and somewhat reassuring to know that other people are experiencing life in a way that relates to you. Ultimately, we are never alone in this and are all connected all of the time, but sometimes we need relatable experiences to feel that fact.
A lovely comment and so true Rachael, we contribute so much to people accepting and understanding themselves by sharing openly and honestly.
Yes and that is where we start to breath from our whole bodies again. I find when I read these blogs I notice so much more about my body and the way I am approaching everything I do in life which I could easily have ignored.
I have just started writing a journal again, a little bit every night. I love this practise it completes the day for me and there is something about writing with a pen instead of on the laptop that allows for a different kind of flow which I feel to be very supportive right now. The actual process of writing with a pen, the way we move across the page, it is like a dance and shows us a lot about how we are – just as much if not more than the content.
Expression is everything, as is communication and it is when we don’t express or communicate that things start to get complicated or misunderstood.
Writing is a wonderful way to express ourselves, and need not be feared. In so many ways it is no different than speaking.
Writing is a way of expressing ourselves, of being seen and heard, ‘there is a level of intimacy and openness offered through a willingness to let others in, which is essentially what I am doing when I write something that others are reading.’
Self-worth issues are a killer…. for writing. When you write, particularly, when you share something that is personal, you get exposed to others and that may prove to be a reason to not do it, just in case, you get rejected somehow confirming your fears and self-worth issues. So, self-worth issues guarantee a movement that returns to itself. Breaking this pattern requires a lot. Most importantly, it may bring a way out of the known pattern that leads you nowhere and that leaves you with nowhere to go.
I love considering this paragraph: “When I take this broader view and value writing as something that offers opportunity for both self-development and a form of service for humanity, I can feel the shifting of a self-imposed load off my shoulders that allows a spacious lightness and flow to enter. In the expansion my perceptions are sharpened.” It applies to every single aspect of life.
When we hold back our expression the world misses out on what we can offer. For me it has been about getting ‘self’ out of the way and letting go of any ideals and pictures as this was crushing my expression and my natural flow.
When we make it all about us there can be a heavy feeling around whatever we are doing, alternatively making it about humanity, our larger family, somehow allows more space and a lightness to pervade our activity. I find this interesting as usually it is thought upon as the other way round… Could it be our connection that makes all the difference here?
Holding back from expressing either in writing or speaking up creates a tension in the body. It is this tension that is actually supporting me to express and set a standard/marker in my life. From setting standards I can build and keep on developing and building my relationship with expression.
From experience I have found that when I get myself out of the way and write from my inner knowing, then the words just flow. Its only when I start thinking about what I am going to write that it becomes complicated and hard.
True – it is about putting down what is needed and not about what we want or need to get out of it. I shall take that into my report writing for work straight after this inspiration.
Many of us get bogged down with the pictures that we have nothing to offer or that we are not good enough, or only certain people with x,y,z can write. Whatever the beliefs and things stopping us, at the end of the day they are designed by nature to stunt our natural expression. Taking the risk of putting yourself out there is a huge step forward to breaking down those false beliefs.
Viewing writing as something we can do for humanity completely takes the self out of what we can do. Getting ourselves out of the way – great for many things in life….
Yes, not making life about self, knowing we are here to serve the plan.
Writing, like all modes of expression is a responsibility and something to be embraced rather than feared.
If we connect to the truth, we’ll understand that everything we do is golden – there is no task greater than another or beyond bringing all our love to.
When we write and publish, on the WEB it becomes like cave paintings and dinosaur footprints, they are out there forever. It is always the author’s responsibility for what is submitted and the energy it was written. Every time we hit the send button, it sends out a ripple on the pond that cannot be recalled!
We do not own expression. It comes through us so there is no trademark on it.
That said, our responsibility is to always know what energy has sourced our expression.
Writing (and publishing it) is making a statement that exists on its own, a creation we are responsible for. It is actually the same with words or even thoughts but the moment it is manifested in matter we are much more aware of the responsibility and that we can and will be held accountable for it.
The reasons you give for not contributing to something by writing about it from a place of true connection are all things I can relate to. However once I overcame this inertia I had to not write and just made a start, I found that it not only supported others, as I do have something worth expressing through writing, but that it has also supported me to be more expressive about how I feel about things in so many other aspects of my life. And so even more people can beneift from what I have to say. It has highligted the responsibility I have to be consistant with my own expression.
Why make a fuss about writing? Why make a fuss about life? It’s not difficult, and the quality we align to takes care of the rest. All that we need to do is choose it.
“When I take this broader view and value writing as something that offers opportunity for both self-development and a form of service for humanity, I can feel the shifting of a self-imposed load off my shoulders that allows a spacious lightness and flow to enter.” This shows how we can support ourselves by making it about the bigger picture instead of making it totally about us and our problems we have to solve. Most of the time the making it about ourselves only, is actually the source of the problems anyway. Opening ourselves up again is then a natural part of healing.
Without a helicopter view, we are limiting ourselves and choosing to blinker ourselves and ignoring the world we live in.
“Yet, if the writing scope is broadened from me in my individual self-protection mode to considering how my behaviour impacts on others, this avoidance seems indulgent, selfish and childish.”
I feel that you could take out the word writing and insert almost any type of behaviour and I think the results would be the same.
A wonderful sharing on writing and expressing ourselves that offers so much love and understanding that it really makes one want to write and share all that we feel to express with true responsibility and purpose and is very inspiring.
The ‘helicopter view’ is our willingness to see life beyond the end of our own noses; to be open to understanding all of our inter-connectedness and the big plan that life on earth offers.
When things get difficult it is always wise to take a few steps back and look at the bigger picture. This brings understanding and acceptance and a greater capacity for love.
I have also felt incredibly inspired, touched and supported by all the insightful pieces of writing on this blog site and other similar ones. So many times I have read something that approached the subject from a different angle that I had not considered before which means that my own understanding has deepened and grown. This is how we can support each other in humanity.
I totally agree Andrew. When we can read about how someone else has approached something in a completly different way to how we would approach it, not only can it inspire us but it can open us up to so many other opportunities that would otherwise be missed. So the more we share about ourselves, the more everyone else benefits.
It’s so true, our writing is so important, it is the light in the darkest night, it is the compass to help guide humanity back to its own true path.
‘it’s up to us all to play our part in creating the type of world we would like to live in’ yes indeed we can choose to live the future now and be role models for our children and our fellow human beings.
Just as with writing it is with speaking up and expressing whatever we feel needs to be expressed for us and everyone involved to have received the full package of what everyone needs to receive by one´s expression. We know it when we do or don’t do it, the body always shows us.
I too appreciate and am inspired by those who write from their heart. There is no doubt it is having a knock-on-effect supporting me to write, share and also express in other ways too.
Writing is a joy like breathing, it cannot be separated from Life as it is a part of life like everything else. Compartmentalizating writing as something special is going to cause a lot of problems in life thinking it’s more or less important than other things. But Truth is Life is Life, it is only one experience.
What gets in the way of uninhibited writing is (too much) thinking.
Too much thinking blocks the flow and connection our body innately knows.
When we stay silent we allow that gap to be filled with another’s interpretation of what we think and who we are. We are always expressing, even when we’re silent and holding back- that is still communicating a message.
I have re-read items I have expressed in writing in the past and found many that were profound. I feel it is because I did not have any ownership of what came out of my fingers.
I love those moments when it is glaringly obvious that what I have written or said is not of my doing or ownership; that free of a need or attachment to self-identification, we can express so much more than we are.
I have had the same experience, it confirms it is not stored knowledge or recall, simply vessels who can know anything any one time for the all.
The written word can be very challenging no different to a photo: one cannot pretend it was not what they meant to say or do – there it is in ‘black and in white’, the truth for all to see.
Yes, writing in connection is a healing all around. It also allows us to grow and even learn from what comes through us as we never own it.
We are born to express… whether that be by movement, by word or thoughts written – however, what is key is the quality of that expression and we need to know the importance of this from very young.
I have not been a prolific writer knowing every one of the excuses listed here so well. Being a frequent visitor of blog sites such as this one, I also know what a gift and blessing it is to read what someone has written from their heart, and what a joy comes through. This means that instead of making a big deal of those reasons that stop me from writing, I could just connect more deeply to my heart and letting the love flow.
Write as who we are and people get to know themselves as who they are.
Expression and writing from our Livingness offers the gold experienced to others who are going through something similar so we are living connected as human beings rather than separate.
Expression is everything, and writing is one way of doing this. Better out than in I say!
Yes and when we express from our truth and it rings true with another no level of academic structure or rules can compare!
Helen, I can relate to many of these excuses for not writing, the lack of time being a common one. When in fact if we are writing from our hearts and not our heads then this can be really quick and not take long at all. I can feel how by not writing we are saying that what we have to share is not as important or helpful for people as other writers, when in truth we all have something to share that can support another.
“Why Make a Fuss about Writing?” – and why make a fuss about ourselves too … since our writing and ‘making a fuss’ of it is equally making a fuss of our expression and thus who we are; therefore everything to “fuss over”.
Expression is a part of self development and also supports others in inspiring them to do likewise.
And the purity of expression unhampered by self, a need for recognition and/or being right or wrong is what we can build true relationships and community with.
Thank you Helen for highlighting how important it is for us all to express – and knowing that this is indeed something to develop gradually!
Expressing myself allows me the space to feel things in my body and actually learn and grow rather than sit and wallow.
Whenever we justify ourselves with excuses we are making it all about us. This keeps us stuck in a pattern that leaves us feeling helpless and given up. When we connect to the responsibility we have to express all of who we are we realise that our choices have an impact on everyone.
The old excuse of getting red marks and crosses all over our school books in primary school has curbed our expression in writing may have been true, but for most, that was a long time ago. It is so easy to let that go, and allow what we know needs to come through to express in full.
So could it be that the old saying, ‘silence is golden’ has little true value as true expression shows caring, respect-full and Loving ways of sharing so much that is needed to be shared within a society that has no true concept about Love in expression?
It is interesting, but out of date that; writing is silver and silence is golden. To not express and staying silent was a discretion for whom? Perhaps someone that would become uncomfortable? How can the truth ever not be evolutional?
This is great Steve, and may I add to the conversation by sharing is it possible that ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’? Which I feel is “True” then blowing your-self up would fly out the window and become a relic of the past!
The defeated sound of silence is what we have accepted as being normal, not putting our head above the rest of the people and for it to be looking different. Not all, over history there have been a few that have stood for the truth. Having these blogs by students who are sharing another way is what is super inspiring.
Thank you for sharing something that I needed to hear!
I was, or still am a bit if I’m honest a bit concerned with my lack of higher education when it came to writing but I know that is totally an idea and belief situation because if it comes out on paper from the heart it can’t be wrong, even if the grammar is.
How long and how many people hold back on writing what we feel just because we don’t like all the rules. Is it not the same telling some past Olympian runners from Africa they could not run fast barefoot? There is a lot of expression with all of us; we just need to let it run.
If we settle for the status quo of what we are expressing we actually are settling for less. This is because we are forever able to deepen the connection with who we truly are and it can be felt energetically as everything is energy and because of energy.
‘When I stop and look back at what I have written here, it’s glaringly obvious that all my excuses are imbued with a desire to maintain the current status quo where written expression is concerned.’ – Your own expose here is simply gold – I can feel how this stirs up my own protection and head in the sand tactics when it comes to writing.
Your lovely openess is clearly felt in your writing Helen.
What an amazing idea… to take the I out of writing, and to serve with every word.
Our expression is so important whether it be written or spoken. We all have something to say that is of great benefit to others. We may never see the results of what we say or write, but that is what makes it so important because then there is no investment in any particular result or being recognised for what we say. Our expression also supports others in their expression too.
A great understanding of what is going on and what the world dictates as to our expression and the written word. Learning to express fully what we feel in our own expression is very empowering and supportive and something to learn to appreciate and love for ourselves.
Our resistance to doing something takes so much effort, and when we eventually begin, that all drops away and whatever is needed flows effortlessly… when we allow our minds to rule we exhaust ourselves; allow our bodies to move by impulse and life flows with vitality.
And in our resistance we are blocking and or fighting everything we are being offered to get the task done.
