I find it amazing how true acceptance of what is actually changes things quite nicely in the direction of more of what I am wanting. Complete acceptance and surrender in the Now of what is, is key, I have and am constantly learning.
How do you live in acceptance of what is, yet only take inspired action?
In other words, as a simple example: I accept that I have the responsibility of attending an important meeting, yet do not feel inspired to go. In fact, the thought of it causes uneasiness. How does one balance the two? And remain vibrationally aligned (outside of meditation)?
Would love your feedback Stingray.
Acceptance of what is and taking inspired action mainly revolve around being in the Vortex, or feeling good in your now moment.
The short and simple answer is to accept where you are, feel good just because it feels good to feel good, and let the inspired action through your vortex place lead you in the right direction no matter what is in front of you. I'll get into a little more detail though because it helps to remind myself more as well.
If you are not feeling good in a particular situation, then the inspired action will not occur. The word "responsibility" in your sentence exudes the feeling of a burden that feels heavy on your shoulders. The uneasiness you feel is a definite signpost that you are resisting the meeting.
True acceptance from my point of view means to give up any resistance in this now moment no matter what the circumstance and just feel good. If you are thinking the thought of uneasiness, then you are not accepting where you are right now and resisting the good feeling vibrations that you truly are.
The inspired action will come when you completely surrender (as you already mentioned) to where you are at this very moment. That means no thoughts of uneasiness, or responsibility, or importance, or nervousness. Just accept the situation for what it is right now and start feeling good right now.
A good way to start would be by getting into a good feeling place the best way you know how. If that is by music, or nature, or thinking of things that you want, or things that please you.
Then start using some positive self talk. If this meeting is something that is a job requirement or something you truly think you need to do, then you need to try and soften it up as much as you can.
"Things will work out just fine in this meeting, it's no big deal"
"I exude confidence and can easily handle any situation that comes my way"
"I accept where I am because things always work out just fine for me"
"I really seem to shine when I am around other people"
These are just a few examples of positive affirmations that help to turn around the constant thought stream of uneasiness if this is something you feel you must do.
If you can get into your vortex of feeling good first and then turn your negative thoughts into positive ones, that is when the inspired action will come into the picture. Have zero expectations of that inspired action and who knows what positive outcome might occur.
For some unknown and seemingly impossible reason the meeting could be cancelled or delayed to another time.
Maybe you go to the meeting and everything works out just fine.
Maybe, just from feeling good, you get a dose of inspired action which leads you in a totally different direction all together where the meeting never even occurs.
It's all about the state of being that you and you alone are in leading up to any situation.
If this meeting is something you need to do for whatever reason, get into your good feeling place and think and say positive things to yourself. Truly believe that everything will work out just fine because if you know it will with zero doubts, then it will work out because that is the law of vibration and frequency.
Circumstances don't matter - Circumstances don't create the solid physical matter in our lives.
Only state of being matters - Your vibrations, emotions, and thought forms create physical matter.
So be at peace with where you are no matter what.
Feel good right now no matter what.
Then, through your good feeling state of being right now, you will always get the inspired action that is just right in any and everything you do in this life.
I'll simplify it a bit.
Don't care about what is, just about what could be.
True acceptance of things being as their are, is in another words not giving a damn about anything that is. You take NO interest to control, adjust, change or do anything about all that is. You just don't care. The moment you start to care, for anything or anyone - you don't truly accept it or them.
If you want someone to have a good life and you put effort in them having a good life, you don't truly accept them. You positively control their life.
So if you really want to truly accept all that is, and take only inspired action. Do two things:
1) Stop to care
2) Start to dream
