Continuing a theme from the other day, I thought we might once again explore our Modus Operandi, our method of operating in the world, asking this time: “have you wandered off?”
When studying the seven Principles of The Wholly Grail, believing ourselves to be fully embracing and honouring them, we often find that what we imagine ourselves to be doing and what we are actually doing are two different things…
I’m currently a good case and point. Presently succumbed to a minor bout of adrenal fatigue due to prolonged stress that I didn’t keep in check. I say minor because luckily I recognised the signs and took steps (Principle 6: I AM Self-Full) to detach from my stressors and to self-heal through rest, meditation, and bringing my full focus back to the present moment… I had wandered off into the future and stayed there too long, a place with no substance and certainly no sustenance.
Principle 2: I AM Detached gives us an instruction to remain present. Now, whilst we are attempting to manifest something into our lives we must point our attention to an imagined future and often make plans or take steps in the present to move in that direction, but if you are constantly pulled to what is promised or equally as detrimental: what has already gone, then we create stress, anxiety and worry energy that depletes the adrenal energy and forms an unsolvable conundrum within the forebrain, a problem that cannot be reconciled and therefore becomes a loop that brings us back to the same question over and over.
In order to fully embrace Principle 2, you have to jolt yourself loose from the infinite possibilities that only time and God can resolve, which is not always easy when loved ones and those with whom you have a shared vision constantly draw your attention to the potential in an effort to build excitement… excitement and suspense are both indicators that you are once again being pulled forward… and so starts the feedback loop again… compounding yet more stress. There will always be those who help to fuel your drama for their own ends.
Personally, I work a bit like a pressure cooker, every so often under these circumstances I will “blow off steam,” usually right before stress makes me ill. This tendency towards becoming a stress head was what led me to define the Grail in the first place.
So then, what’s your Modus Operandi? Have you wandered off too far into the shadow world of tomorrows or yesterdays?
You can use “I AM Detached” as an affirmation to help bring you back to the present moment, but it’s worth monitoring for a little while, maybe a day, where your mind wanders off to when you aren’t paying attention… that’s where all your energy is leaking and your Grail cup is spilling its precious life affirming contents.
