We are engines of manifestation. The lower triangle, which governs the relationship to earth, water and fire, gives us the power and authority to create anything in this world. Without the earthy aspects, we fall flat. We can dream but we cannot realize. We might feel flighty, distracted or "stretched-thin," all symptoms of a lack of grounding. Living successfully from the lower centers requires discipline and grace. We must learn to balance the lower centers to our higher goals and ideals, lest we become immoral and self-gratifying. When the two triangles are in balance with their pivot-point: the heart-center, anahata, we begin to process and balance our ambitions with what is real and practical in the world and we move with a grace and certainty which belies a deep confidence that as we move, the world is also moved, that each breath creates something new, that our ideas have potential, that our seeds can find fruition.
Look at your life and ask yourself if you can acknowledge your self-manifestation in all that you behold. For certainly, the things which you agree to will stay with you and become your life. There is absolutely nothing in your life which you are required to continue choosing. There are many thing we would abhor to abandon. But really look and ask yourself why you choose anything which causes you pain, discomfort, which makes you small or demands your sacrifice. Sometimes we choose these things for reasons we easily and completely justify, such as a disabled loved one.
Oftentimes we simply lack the will to admit we are choosing, or the power to walk away, even when we KNOW our greater meaning is not being served by our suffering. Building the energy of the lower centers will give us this ability, to recognize and make decisions about our values and goals, to ACT and CREATE instead of simply talk and hope.
Staying grounded keeps us in our center of creation, keeps our focus on our goals and helps us to find our "fit" within the grand scheme of what is, not just what we imagine. It is from this space that we are truly able to grow and manifest our heart's true desires!
