Apathy is actually more energizing than shame or guilt.
There is more potential for empowerment and self leadership here. Although there is an absence of inspiration or active energy, apathy is lighter and less ‘fossilized’.
In apathy there is a sense of hopelessness and despair – yet these perceptions exist only from within the vantage of being in apathy. As soon as we lift ourselves out of it – into the observer position or into an emotional energy field above it – we begin to see solutions to our challenges. We begin to be empowered – to be in charge.
For a brief instant, step into the energy field of apathy.
Memories may flash in you, like snapshots on a movie screen. You may feel sensations in your body or hear inner voices. Notice how your body reacts. How does it feel? Is your breathing open and easy … or tight? Be as alert as you can possibly be for these few moments.
Familiarize yourself with the energy field of apathy so that you can recognize it as an observer in future. As you master this, you will never ever need to languish in it again.
As soon as you have a sense of the energy field of apathy, step out of it. Become an observer simply watching it – from the outside. This returns you to a place of choice.
Remember … We are traveling UP this ladder of emotions. Keep reading the upcoming posts, as we are not here to linger in Apathy.
