If the yin and yang of our energy are our being and doing, then authentic being and conscious doing allow our energies to move in the same direction as Spirit. Are you, through your intentions and desires, moving in the same direction as your Spirit? Or are you caught up in needing life to be a certain way in order to feel okay about yourself? When what we do is rooted in fear or feelings of inadequacy, we are not moving in the direction of Spirit.
When the world around you is in turmoil, you may be confused as to where you should stand. When social issues become polarized and politicized, people may demand to know, “Are you for us or against us?” It is important to know that you need not become trapped in divisiveness. You can take a stand for unity. The one thing to be against is the tendency to react in anger and hostility, to give vent to feelings of bias and prejudice. And the important thing to be for is the way of love.
