Chaos CAN be creative – but only when WE are VERY clear on our intentions, on what guides us and what we are moving towards. If we are not purposeful, if we spring in to action without clear intention, then we only feed the chaos.
There are those right now who understand the power of chaos. They believe that it serves their purposes – that it disempowers the rest of us and keeps us at odds with each other.
We do not have to go this route. We can center ourselves. We can bring ourselves back to what we know to be true, to what we love and value. When we act from this place of centered intention, fierce love, inclusion and interconnectedness, our power is great.
Ask yourself, “In the face of this reality, what do I choose to experience? To create? What do I value? What is the simplest, most effective way to put that into action?” Then go do it.
Now, sometimes that is easier said than done. Just yesterday, I found myself pinging back and forth between reaction and intentional action, explosive frustration and uplifted resolve. Like most, I have some well worn paths in my brain that cause me to drift easily into overthinking, helplessness and fear.
It takes conscious and regular effort on my part to correct my course, to move myself towards empowerment and creative problem solving. That said, I CAN do it if I choose to do so. And BONUS, I’ve noticed that it gets easier the more that I do make that choice.
This is true for all of us.
The truth is that, right now, EACH of us has an opportunity to make these choices, build our muscles, align with our values and act with intention. We can claim the inherent creativity of chaos if we acknowledge our ability to do so and act upon it.
No question about it, it can be challenging. After all, we are human. We feel the ebbs and flows of emotion, the constraints of physical being and the illusions of duality and separation that come with our earthly existence.
But, my loves, we are also powerful creators. What we imagine, what we choose to experience, what we direct our energies towards, we can co-create. Let us remember this.
There are always those who will use chaos to destroy. This happens. And this does not need to be our path.
We have a choice. We have free will. We have power. So let us build, let us create, let us birth anew what we most want to see in this world. XOXO
