It seemed like, after the election, the LAST THING that I wanted to talk about was the Law of Least Effort.
In fact, I felt so fired up inside for action, I couldn’t find the place from which to enter the conversation again. I wanted to talk about Divinely Inspired Action, Global Responsablity, the Oneness of all things…there were a lot of things burning up my heart.
And here we are now, a day past Christmas, with the New Year right in front of us. And I’m sure many artists… well, me for starters, is saying….what do I want to create now? What do I want to bring into the world?
And if you are like me, its not just one thing, for me its like 14 things.
Actually, I just counted, it is really is 14 things.
So, here’s were I think the Law of Least Effort can help. (And I’m honestly just coaching myself here, and if anyone wants to read along, you are welcome to!) Vincent Van Gogh said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” In fact, that is what is on a very cute notepad that my friend bought me for Christmas. It’s staring me in the face.
Okay, I’m paying attention…
I’m committed to starting small. Least Effort.
After many days of one thing, it becomes many things. And so, when I plug into my Inner Direction is whispers to me this… Just sit down… just do the one thing today. Be here now. That is all.
One thing. Here and Now.
It can be simple, but it allows the Great Thing to begin.
EXERCISE for Day 8:
What’s one small thing that you can do today?
