I commented to a friend yesterday about how writing is a physical activity–in it’s own way. Sitting at a computer day in and day out does take a physical toll on a body’s body. Neck. Shoulders. Back. Wrists. Hands. Even legs. I have to remind myself to get up, move around, stretch. I have to do the same for my eyes, remembering to look up and out the window so my distance vision gets exercised too. This reminder from the Universe recently showed up in my inbox.
Silver, to make hard tasks easy, mountains molehills, and challenges simple, you can opt for one of two paths. You can be still, wait for guidance, and expect spontaneous enlightenment.
Or you can just roll up your sleeves and get busy doing what you can, with what you’ve got, from where you are.
May I suggest the latter? It’s usually much faster. And it makes you a lightning rod for divine guidance and spontaneous enlightenment.
Silver, sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do is to get physical.
Now, lets get to the other perspective this message gave me. See, I haven’t done much writing lately, which is sorta sad given that I call myself a writer. My brain doesn’t want to engage. Or something. I could call it writer’s block. That’s always a good excuse, but as the Universe points out above, I have two choices. I can sit and stare out the window (resting my eyes, don’cha know!) while waiting for inspiration to strike. Or, I can get my hands on the keyboard and start typing out words. I can complete the task of creating new words simply by typing them. I’m a writer. I have a Muse, even if Iffy is being mostly recalcitrant at the moment. I know that you can’t fix a blank page. I know that bad writing can be turned into good writing with edits and revisions, but if there are no words there, that’s rather hard to accomplish. So, time to roll up my sleeves, because the Universe is right. Once I start typing out words, I do become a lightning rod for guidance and enlightment. So, I’m getting physical today.
