The Power of Pure Potentiality – Creating the Conditions
Vandana Shiva is a physicist, teacher and international advisor with a tenacity for freedom, sharp intellect and warm-hearted wisdom that is both impressive and motivating.
One universal truth Vandana spoke of was that THE UNIVERSE IS PURE POTENTIALITY. She emphasized that our capacity to manifest or co-create what we desire in our world is based on our capacity to CREATE THE CONDITIONS for their unfolding.
I’ve been deepening my understanding of our existence – how it came to be, what it’s for and what might be a good thing to do with it. Guided by the works of many, including physicist Brian Swimme, Deep Ecologists including John Seed and even understanding more about nature of slime mould better, some formerly ‘out-there New Age’ concepts are gaining more credibility in the physical sciences. They are clarifying in my mind, and quite frankly, it’s revelational.
So the question is, in this universe of pure potentiality, what would your optimal health look like?
• How do your 75 trillion cells function?
• How clear and sharp is your mental capacity?
• How tuned in are you with your emotions and your instinct?
• How well are you living your unique version of life in the world?
To create optimal human health and wellbeing we need to ‘create the conditions’ for optimal health. This physics concept aligns with the first level of the “Therapeutic Hierarchy of Healing”, as articulated by Naturopaths Zeff, Snider, & Myers.
This basic level of health requires the presence of all the factors that allow for optimal wellbeing. These of course include good sleep, clean water, healthy nutrition, connection with nature & other humans, self-reflection, fresh air, exercise, sunlight, stress management, fulfilling engagement, love and freedom from addiction and so on. By establishing the container for wellbeing to unfold, it is more likely to occur.
Sure, it’s not rocket science. But it is profound in its simplicity, and many of us don’t actually create the conditions that allow for health to flourish. And many of us are fortunate to have the power to chose and create these conditions and thus to realise and live optimal in health.
5 tips to Create the Conditions
1. Structure your daily life.
The bodymind loves rhythm. Regularity of sleeping and waking, relaxing and exercising, playing and working, eating and pooing, being social and being solitary etc. A harmonious structure in your life, as it rolls on a day-to-day basis, can provide the rhythm needed for the process of wellbeing to unfold.
2. Quality fuel for bodymind.
Choose the best vital nutrition, hydration, fresh air, nature and sunlight available.
3. Continue to learn and evolve.
Surround yourself with things you like, that inspire you, that encourage creativity, play and that tickle your curiosity. Converse with engaging people, choose to look outside your habitual subject area to expand and reignite your interest. Be willing to learn and try new things. Be open and flexible. Keep an open mind, so that new concepts and ideas can be entertained and take root if they feel right for you.
4. Allocate time and space for sweet nothing.
Rebalance, integrate and self reflect. Schedule in time to “Do nothing”, and keep meeting as an appointment as important as any other. Tune into what’s going on around you. Practice mindfulness. Take a millisecond right now to stop doing and just be…
5. Start with a single step.
Even micro movements can add up to profound change.
Remember the butterfly flapping its wings connecting to the tidal wave? … Exactly.
What ever you do to bring more love, joy and wellbeing into your life will have a ripple effect throughout life. But it’s up to you to take the step.
What would you like to introduce to your life to create better conditions for your optimal health?
What ever it is, go ahead. Start creating them now.
