Actions of Spirit


Whenever you take action, have the attitude that you are not performing the action. Have the attitude that your actions are really the actions of non-local intelligence, the organizing universal spirit. You will begin to notice a great diminution of anxiety. You will also be less attached to the result.

“The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire”- Deepak Chopra

This quote reminds me of what I said about taking inspired action after meditation or taking note of things that pop into your head that you should do. I believe that these are the actions of spirit and these actions will bring us farther down the path that we truly want to go down in life. What Deepak means by the universal spirit is one of a collective consciousness. We all have an individual mind in our individual physical body, but we also have access to a collective mind that we all share. That is where inspirations truly come from if we get quiet enough to let them in.

Often throughout the day I will have ideas for baking, ideas for writing, ideas for projects or ideas for things I would like to do for others. I take these into account and often act on as many of these as I can. These are the positive messages from the universe nudging me in the right direction if I choose to allow it. I know that all of these actions have resulted in joy and that is why I continue to pay attention to them. I may not see real physical results from them or really know exactly why I have been lead down this path, but I trust that the path will illuminate itself one idea at a time, one inspiration at a time, one project at a time. When the feeling for action comes upon us, that is a very good sign.

If there are days where you don’t feel like doing things, that is ok. It means it is time to rest, read, tune into yourself. You will get inspired ideas very soon. I have gone through periods like this, like after the closure of the coffee shop and after the closure of the meal service I needed to take a break, feel the feelings of grief and sadness, of letting go and then be able to get my spirit back up to action. The inspiration and the good energy must be there for you.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this or about any inspirations that you have gotten recently. Thank you so much for reading!

With lots of love,
