The Small Insight: Split second awareness

The Small Insight: Split second awareness

Electric_Energy

I had a great realization yesterday!
There is no separation between your spiritual practice and your life.

Everything that we do in our life can be another way to practice qigong. Qigong simply means energy skill, in other words the skill we have to clearly communicate with all energy in the universe. This is not some woo-woo new age stuff, quantum physics has found that everything in the universe is vibrating energy at various levels or frequencies. Depending on where we put our observation we bring things into existence. What you think about you bring about. Put you mind on something that angers you and your vibration lowers period. Put your mind on someone you love and you’re immediately in a different mind frame.

DURING TIMES OF TROUBLE OR SEEMING OBSTACLE:
This is where it is of utmost importance that you stay  awake, aware and alert to the subtle shifts happening in your mind, body and emotions. Where thoughts go, energy flows.

The small insight:
I was driving home on a beautiful Sunny Day from Santa Cruz and I got a flat tire. As I was changing the flat tire, I was kind of frustrated and angry because I had places to be. I thought, “why did this happen? Did I do something to deserve this inconvenience?”

Then it hit me! NO. This is just part of your practice, this is your Qigong. You get to practice patience and acceptance right NOW. What is all this spiritual training worth, if you can’t apply it in daily life when you need it most?

I asked myself a couple simple questions:
Can you be here in this moment and change your tire with a smile on your face?
Or do you let it ruin your day?
So I turned on some music in my car, smiled from the inside and just focused on each breath as I slowly and clumsily changed my tire.
Instead of being a victim of the universe…OH POOR ME…

I decided in that moment that there are no circumstances that define my happiness!

There are no external circumstances that will rock my internal state of being, as long as I stay AWAKE, AWARE, AND ALERT.

We always have a choice, let the energies of negativity wrap you up in thought like a whirlwind or CHOOSE to make lemonade out of lemons and be present with the situation without judgment or resentment.

How to SHIFT your awareness and CHOOSE a higher frequency of thought:

Nothing is inherently good or evil. Everything in this world is energy vibration, somethings are vibrating at higher and lower frequencies so tune into the high frequencies of compassion, forgiveness, patience, and trust. We all feel the vibrations of anger, lust, doubt, despair, etc. but how long do you stay there? Do you start judging yourself? Do you start blaming others, yourself or God for things that are outside of your control? Or do you choose a higher frequency of thought? Do you choose patience and acceptance over anger? Do you choose love over fear? It boils down to a conscious choice. The power and energy is in your hands.

Steps:

I call it split-second awareness. If you stay awake, you will notice the split-second a low vibration emotion comes in. This is where the magic is.
1. When you have an event occur in your life that is unexpected or troublesome simply breath and feel the emotion fully! In that split-second notice the exact feeling. Don’t deny that you are angry or sad. Do not repress the natural feelings that are occuring. Simply let the emotions move through you and observe your body, breath and mind.
2. Then CHOOSE. Look at the situation from a higher frequency. How is this situation helping you cultivate compassion, patience, trust, forgiveness, etc.?
3. CHOOSE every moment. Choose not to be a victim of your circumstance and rise above it. Remember that you are EMPOWERED BY EVERYTHING.
Every situation in your life is another opportunity to practice qigong. Another opportunity to practice the spiritual virtues you are cultivating in meditation, yoga, etc.
Qigong is simply being aware of the the energies that are moving in you and around you, you get to CHOOSE which ones you focus on.

Life is your practice. Connect deeply with life and you will know happiness.

    Wise words. There is something liberating about the idea that spiritual practice and “regular life” are not separate. Like that Peman Chodron’s book title goes.. “Every moment is a perfect teacher.”

    Sometimes I think it is in these unexpected moments that we can pay most attention – the ripple in our everyday flow may just be a signal of a most important occurrence or message. What magic is around you? I remember the first TRUE time I tuned into this – on the way home from the airport after Qi Rev Austin 2010. The senses heightened – I was picking up things from the cars passing me on the highway, and the messages on the street signs started to synchronize with the things I was working through and figuring out. What a moment when it finally clicked in an experiential way: There are no ordinary moments!

    Thanks David, see it’s things like this that make me enjoy Qigong more and more everyday. I try to tell people everyday it’s not about not getting upset or angry it is how you deal with being upset or angry. The true battle is within ones self! This will be everyones truest test and greatest battle, so one would do well to arm themselves with the tools and weapons to go to war! QIGONG has been one of my greatest tools and weapon.

    Thanks David , because of my practice my responses to stress and life’s bumps has even surprised me. Qigong is a way of life , a meditation in motion because if we are paying close attention to life that is qigong. Choosing the higher vibrations should be our goal.

    I intended to create you this tiny word to finally say thanks a lot over again for the superb opinions you have shared on this website. It’s so wonderfully generous of people like you to deliver easily what exactly a few individuals could have marketed for an electronic book to end up making some profit for themselves, mostly now that you could have tried it if you ever considered necessary. Those solutions also acted to become a great way to fully grasp that many people have a similar desire similar to my personal own to see very much more in regard to this issue. I am sure there are lots of more pleasurable times ahead for individuals who browse through your site.
