Expansion and Contraction
The opposites of life create the wholeness of life. Expansion and Contraction are not just opposites, they are two parts of a whole. Life seeks both, for it is One inclusive whole. Are you inclusive by nature, allowing Life to flow through you in its opposites? That which you oppose or resist creates a friction within your life force. As you are inclusive, allowing the totality of life to flow through you, your own expansion and contraction flows with ease. Contraction need not be resisted. It is the focusing, the resting, the letting go and the allowing. This is part of your livelihood, for without contraction, expansion has no platform for existence. It takes strength to allow the contraction, for it is within the inner world that is unseen - the space of choice, before it comes to fruition. Expansion is the visible result of contraction.
The outwardly-focused world sees the expansion side of life, placing little value on the contraction within. A focused beam of light becomes brighter. A beam of light that is not as focused will disperse out over a greater expanse, though not appear as bright. It takes great energy to create the same brightness over the expanse. As you focus your beam of light on your internal creation (the subtle quantum world), your contraction creates visible expansion within time. As you allow the focused contraction within to combust into great expansion the natural power sources of life expel you outward. Just as your nightly rest expels you toward renewal the next morning, so does your subtle focus. Your contraction is not a punishment for lack of correct action, it is the natural cycle of life assisting you toward expansion. Expand your thinking into a contracted beam of focused Love and observe the changes around you. Love is an inclusive force and thus the natural flow of Life is Love. As you align with Love, you allow the totality of the universe to flow through you. You become the supernova you truly are.
