Pharaoh’s Whip

The familiar is often easier to stick with than venturing into the unknown. Inertia may be likened to mental laziness, seeking to remain in a state of rest, or resisting a change in direction even when heading towards disaster!

It is no different in abusive relationships, as noted through the ages! The Israelites resisting deliverance from Pharaoh yet dying physically and in every way under his leadership, the domestic abuse cycle and toxic relationships. Many stay in toxic situations that suppress their potential to bloom and make the world a better place, just for fear of embracing change.

The external force… Inertia maintains status quo, unless an external force acts on it. The required additional force to move forward, may be an intensified fear of loss, an increased appetite for emotional, financial, or other gain, or an increased awareness of doom or death. The pain you feel are lashes from Pharaoh’s whip reminding you the painful situation is meant to push you forward! Staying may result in more lashes to push you out!

What beautiful dream are you giving up on for fear of making change? Determine your why for overcoming inertia! Keep the why constantly before you, a mood board may be helpful. Our trials may sometimes be the additional force required to push us into being free indeed!

It looked like the perfect dream, living on acres of lush green pastures, evening walks on the farm inhaling fresh clean air, watching sunrise and sunset untainted with man's interference! The scenes started to change like a movie fast forwarded and precious moments seemed uncaptured till quickly gone, never to return. I started learning to cherish life, the greatest gift above all things! I needed more, so I sought the source and got to know it came from Love and with it was always freedom! The rapidly changing scenes, with years speeding by, have been stormy and sometimes still, bright and grey, with highs and low! I have found meaningful living is not determined by circumstances, but rather by what goes on within. The fuel in the heart powers the body, its activities and interactions. Love gives life and powers living. Embracing freedom enables meaningful living and beautiful expressions of life. I remain passionate about a journey with life, love and liberty and hopefully encouraging others to do the same, living purposefully and leading in love by liberty. #LoveLifeLiberty
