Do you have these quiet periods of life? When you're not producing anything, nor being efficient on the outside?
It could be you are processing pain. And you feel you are in the Valley of Darkness - away from the world.
Is it another season for you? Like the Season of Growth. When it's a time to read the great books, and write in your journal. To rethink your thinking and rewire your life.
On those times ... you might think "I am wasting my time". Your emotional universe is filled with guilt. Because you are not doing, and your schedule is not full and you are not producing.
But ... what if those times are actually being productive in another way? Producing - not in the world but within yourself. Producing new energies. Producing new emotions. Transforming your fears into love.
Because in order to let go, to release you have to go through the pain. And when you release those fears then you grow in bravery.
What does that do to your craft? What does that do to your power?
You are renewed, you look at your skills with new eyes. You see things that were hidden.
A break away can serve you well.
