It was good to be reminded of my earlier observation that the frozen part can be the active agent, not just the passive recipient of light from above. When I not only centered my attention on the knot in my spine (for example) but also let it direct the show, shining its light outward, actively pushing its energy out in all directions—when I did that, I noticed something new: my whole system became calmer. I think this is because I don’t always need a new infusion of energy from above; the constant influx can overwhelm my system. Instead, the energy that’s already there just needs to organize itself, release itself, be liberated by the force of its own power and by the integration of the surrounding parts.
More water and sunlight are not always needed; the plant may just need to break through the surface of the soil.
