Apathy Can Be A Good Thing!
Apathy seems to have a negative connotation. I know it had a
negative connotation for me until recently. We think of apathy as
not caring or not being motivated. Yet, the definition of apathy in
the dictionary is ‘lack of interest or concern.’
more closely at this. Maybe being apathetic means that what used to
matter doesn’t matter any more. Maybe you no longer care what others
think or about possessions. Maybe you have stopped being concerned
and instead have just allowed things to be. And surprise - things no
longer affect you. Now this can be a good thing!
I know lots
of people who have shared similar sentiments. They do not care
anymore and feel apathetic. They say they only have the energy and
desire to just be - be still, be present, and to live simply without
worries. Even if their life becomes spun up with situations out of
their control, they still are able to just be. In a way, they just
show up for their life each day and live it.
is a part of all spiritual paths. Masters the world over impart the
importance of not letting things affect you. Perhaps apathy is a
way that you could reach that place of truly letting go and just
being. As long as you struggle to live and maintain in a world that
is shifting and changing so rapidly, you will never get to 'being'
and you will always feel exhausted. So, “I don’t care anymore, I
just want health and peace,” is a good thing!
bring a few surprising gifts. When you become a person that lacks
worry, it places you in a higher vibrating space. It also supports
your continual process of letting go of unwanted attachments. When
you no longer care about much of anything, you become disentangled
from 'much', which allows you to be much more in the moment. When
you do not care about 'much', you are more out of the way and
detached. In order to successfully manifest the life you want, it
helps when you have no attachments.
I find it interesting
that is always when you no longer care about having something, that
it appears. When you no longer care if you meet a woman or man – you
do! When you no longer care about trying so hard, unexpected support
or opportunities arrive. It’s an emptying, before the filling.
When we are in apathy we are more aligned with our soul, making our
creation inspired by our soul instead of from our human ego self.
Experiences that make us feel like things are not going our way,
force us to let go. They force us to stop caring. Think about it.
Don’t the areas of your life where you have no strong opinions, seem
to go along the best? Bingo! It’s because you have no attachments.
So if you are feeling apathetic, instead of worrying about
it, why not embrace it? Why not let apathy take you to a place of
letting go and being?
I received in one of my channeling
meditations, “You dance a good dance. You smile a nice smile. You
always speak positively. You appear to have this mastery thing
nailed. Yet deep inside there is still the shred of doubt, fear,
uncertainty, anger, and betrayal. Turn it all over to us. We will
take it. We will transform it into that which you want. Let your
higher self direct the show. Let your soul comfort you. Let your
angels pull all of the strings.”
When you embrace apathy and
let it take you to a place of letting go and being, you will be
filled with a sense of calm and order. When you are detached and
aligned with God – it fosters a sense of trust and knowing that
everything is always in divine order, and nothing really matters
anyway. God bless you.
