One danger a person faces in extreme times is exhaustion. Over watching crazy, in-taking spun out of control media and intense constant never ending attacks wears a person out. Likewise: Intolerance from others will further undercut a person. It takes large amounts of energy to always be on alert or to resist nagging attacks against life.
Standing to resist abuse / tyranny / prejudice will take a toll upon each person and society itself.
Holding freedom is all about knowing:
when to stand up to act,
when to assist others and
how to find moments to recharge and rest.
As the times become more intense, the more a person will unconsciously tense up to resist. This natural behavior to protect oneself drains a person. Over time being pushed into resistance all the time will push a person into numbness or shutting themselves down.
Working towards freedom has two sides.
Standing up in your power when required and to rest & recover your power when you can.
Learn this back and forth pace within your actions towards maintaining personal power. It’s deeply important to include finding time to rest and for healing.
As you get better in standing up in your power, you will learn how to rest and keep a dash of awareness open so you can be proactive at the proper moments.
