The “royal practice” of overcoming distraction.

“To transcend duality is the kingly view. To conquer distractions is a royal practice.”
Osho, The Book of Tantra


Most of us approach distraction as a time management issue—how we wrangle our to-do list and hit our goals. But when you zoom out and look at it esoterically, it
snaps your priorities into place, and fast. Here it is:

Anything that is not aligned with the True You, is distraction.

Anything (person, place, gig, idea, arrangement, obligation, practice, policy…) that does not resonate with your deep heart… is distraction.

Activity that pulls you away from your true strengths… is distraction.

Thoughts that do not sync with your deep trust… is distraction.

Relationships that do not support your full potential… distraction.

All the opposites of your pleasure, your strength, your truth… distraction.


Distraction is inevitable, it’s essential, even, because we learn through contrast. Distraction is a gear that we grind to move forward.
We’re focused, then we get pulled out (sometimes for years at a time), then we re-focus. That’s life.

The “royal practice” is to keep coming back to your Soul power. It’s demanding work—all the no thank you’s you’ll have to say, and the mid-course correcting, and the departures, and the courageous beginnings. It makes Queens and Kings of us—the truly devoted few who call distractions for what they are: not the Truth. And get on with Truthing.


 

Cheer on your royal friends with some focus support. Press share. xo

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you-Danielle-LaPorte

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you?

Show me how to love the ones that are like, really hard to love. The misogynists and boundary bullies, the fake leaders and land-rapers. Actually, for the sake of efficiency, just show me how to love the most greedy. That should cover it. (But while we’re at it, help me out with the Mean Girls, ‘cause like, whoa.)

How to hone your truth detector-Danielle-LaPorte

How to hone your truth detector.

There’s so much faking it to make it and deception happening in every sector of life — from politics to self-improvement. So how can we hone our truth detectors?

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

In my experience, boundary obliviousness is part of the initiation into wholeness. I don’t think you have to warrior your whole life for it, but it’s a passage to self-agency that most women seem to have to go through. Boundaries help us expand our consciousness.
