When you're not acting on the things that are guided and purposeful then the mind will always fill the space with distractions to keep you occupied.
The distractions will constantly hold you in such a way that your 'purposeful' actions fades down the list of things to do. It also creates stressors as the inner knowing of what ‘to do’ feels miles from what you are currently doing and is not purposeful or indeed meaningful. Its stuff that is tying you to the busyness of life, it frustrates and feels pointless.
Remember that you have allowed this situation to occur, your thinking, lack of belief, doubts, confidence or vague direction can all contribute to these constant distractions.
This behaviour is being played out every moment to countless numbers of humanity, particularly in the western world which has created a huge energy expectation of busyness, got to do it now, have it now.
The guiding voice inside is quiet but the noise of the outside world shouts, its winning and you are losing out! You are losing your way to this world which is making you believe things about yourself that are not true. They come from the ego and you feel them and believe them. So as you think and feel these labels your energy radiates them out to the world for all to see and feel. It’s also felt by the energy of life and it responds in kind, projecting them back into your life. It’s the self fulfilling prophecy of life in every moment, like energy attracts like energy, and so the circle continues.
There are always decision moments in life. We can either decide to get caught up in the actions of distraction, or ignore them and follow our inner guidance that will move us into something different. Something that will have meaning and purpose for us.
So if you are going to allow yourself to get stressed, then it would be wise to choose an experience that allows you to be stressed doing what you love and are passionate about rather than something that distracts and keeps you stuck.
I know what i would choose!
