THE LAKE ANALOGY💧
Visualize a lake in your minds eye. This lake is one thousand feet deep. On the surface of the lake, you may have sunny days, cloudy days, rainy days, stormy days, calm days, and wavy days. However, no matter what is occurring on the surface of the lake, when you dive deep down into that lake, the water will always be still. Even if a hurricane is happening on the surface, it makes no difference. At one thousand feet deep, there will always be stillness!
The lake is a representation of you.
The surface of the lake where the water is always changing represents your state of doing.
The depths of the lake where the water is always still represents your state of being.
Next time an external circumstance comes your way that makes you feel upset, sad, or down, dive deep within yourself where your stillness resides and reclaim your state of being. Feel the stillness and inner peace that nobody has the ability to touch and no external circumstance has the power to affect.
When you live through a state of being instead of a state of doing, nobody and no-thing can hurt you anymore. You become invincible, which is the energetic truth of who you are!
When you focus on being instead of doing, what you are doing becomes irrelevant. Whether you are a janitor or the CEO of a fortune 500 company, what you do is not what counts. It’s what you are being when you do whatever it is that you do that makes all the difference. After-all, your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living, and when you are no longer in your present form, neither will you! Your soul only cares about what you are being while you do whatever it is that you do. So, no matter what you are doing, make sure to always BE. BE grateful. BE present. BE YOU!
