Have you ever had that blissful moment when you look around your organized and clean living space in great celebration, and then a few hours later or the next morning you wonder how the hell chaos and mess returned so quickly?
What if you found out that it isn’t out of the ordinary at all, and in fact it’s the core of how the universe is designed to function?
Life is designed to unravel, to spin out control, to make it hard to keep things together. But why? Are you ready for the good news?
Because when things fall apart, there is a potential to generate new order, a gateway and an opportunity to do something different. To engage, to leave it alone, to clean it up, to rearrange. You get to choose how you step into participation with the ebb and flow of living.
Entropy reminds you that in a world where things are designed to unravel, it takes effort to keep things together, and that is something to cherish. You get to choose what it is you put energy towards, or what you are creating, or what you are holding together with boundaries, dedication, and effort.
From participation in an intimate relationship, investing in the health of your body, to accomplishing tasks at work, if you don’t engage with the movement of life it might just spin out of control.
Your life falls apart every once in awhile. Isn’t that great?
Instead of resisting it when it happens — whether it is in small ways or bigger instances — step into the process of living yoga. Embrace it for what it is, and know that it will eventually pass. Take the opportunity to build something new in your life.
How do you engage, make order, and turn towards a world that is naturally inclined to break up and fall apart? Share with me in the comments below!
