Allowing, including impulses

 

A common suggestion is to see how it is to allow what’s here, this experience as it is.

And also to notice it’s already allowed and align more consciously with that allowing.

As with so much else, the general pointer is simple, and the refinements endless.

For instance, I can shift into allowing this field of experience – these sensations, words, images – as it is. I can notice it’s already allowed, by life, mind, awareness. That is quite simple. (Although not always easy.)

Within this content may be impulses to act. Relating to these requires more discrimination and experience.

Some of these impulses may be a quiet guidance. And I can follow that if it seems appropriate, and kind.

Others of these may be reactive, they may come from identifications, beliefs and wounds. I can meet these with love and curiosity, without acting on them.

It may be like this during intentional sessions, and it’s often not like this in everyday life. And that’s OK. This is an exploration. How is it to do this in sessions? And how is it when I instead act on reactivity? Or do not act on guidance? What are the consequences?

Over time, with this practice and noticing, there may be a shift. What I do in intentional sessions may seep out into daily life. It becomes a new habit. A new groove. And the wish for that to happen is also something to allow, and perhaps meet with love and curiosity.  

…………..
…………..
…………..

– love for what is, peace with it
– including impulse for change, healing etc. (impulse to follow guidance, be a good steward for own life)
– impulse for change w/out allowing what is = identification, holding tightly, life-and-death matter
– impulse for change w allowing = ease, gentle touch
– in real life, often switch between the two, and blend

– two types of impulses, (a) to follow guidance, be a good steward of own life etc., (b) reactive, from beliefs, wounds, pain
– both, find love for, and then be selective, (a can live the first (if seems appropriate, kind), (b) meet the second w love/curiosity

– allowing (a) intentional, (b) notice already is
