You can’t trust another till you trust yourself, because if you don’t trust yourself then how do you know who’s trustworthy?
I’ve noticed that whenever I need to get something done, I always feel I need to clean up my desk and then end up not getting the other thing done. Does that have anything to do with Dead Spots and Necromancy? It does indeed. We’ll explore your example.
When you go about any task, realize that you are not creating one situation. You are creating two. You are creating the positive situation you want, and you are creating a negating energy as well. This negating energy will either negate your task because you didn’t control it, or it can be harnessed to extend your action into other situations. Your current activity can cast a constructive shadow on other activities around it. The strategy behind it is pretty simple.
Like when you stop watching TV. That alone can change your life because other stuff can be born. Yes. Everything you end creates an open spot. These open spots form a skeleton of empty or yin energy. The positive energy moves like water to fill the empty spaces. So anything you stop doing or choose to exclude from your list of options will influence the positive outcome of your activities.
So in essence we are creating our reality by the decisions we make? Yes, and we are creating our reality by the choices we refuse to make. You can be so determined to preserve something that you destroy it. So careful to hold the egg carefully that you fumble it and it breaks on the floor.
Ah, so to get something done, stop something else before you start. Yes, but not just anything. Necromancy is exchange. Transmutation. In order to succeed at anything you must fail at or stop something of equal energy.
Create a dead spot so that the new energy can flow into it? Yes. In order to improve your relationship with your spouse, you must stop a self serving activity no matter how reasonable it may seem to keep it. Example being, husband doesn’t insist on being the one to drive the car.
That is why multi tasking feels useless to me. I don’t think anyone can really do that and stay balanced. I agree with you. Multi-tasking just creates a self defeating noise. It can be constructive if the group of things you are doing are all linked, but mostly people try to exploit the spirit behind an event while also ignoring it.
What about flow thinking? Flow thinking is a natural way of embracing yin or death energy. Flow thinking means letting any activity die on its own and moving with that.
Is that like brainstorming? Yes, but brain storming coupled with doing. In Chinese philosophy it’s called wu-wei, or wei wu wei. Doing non-doing. You have to make non-doing or negative doing a natural part of all your doing.
Stop and take a breather before moving on to the next task? Yes, and realize that the creepy side of life is just the left hand of your soul. Let the right hand know what the left hand is doing.
I find if I put myself in a quiet room and be still, then my mind can better focus on the next task. A quiet room is often described as a coffin or a crypt. There is a reason for that.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
