How we choose to carry ourselves in this world is the pillar of staying grounded and centered, given any situation that arises, we choose to ACT rather than RE-act.
What does this mean, well let's break the word "react" down we are "re"-peating and act we have assimilated with a certain though pattern in the mind, for example when anger comes towards to I retort with anger or violence, when I am overwhelmed with a situation I respond by closing down my receptivity and resort to being flustered by filling my mind with high wind energy. But these are all learnt patterns, a way we have grown to believe this is how we protect ourselves or that it's the way we will get what we want.
These reactions come so unconsciously and with a natural feeling to us we may not even realise we can separate the two. But we can, we can always relearn and reprogram our mind to come from a place of centeredness, not matter what we are receiving and what is being directed towards us, we can always take a breath, come into our mindful state of being, and process with awareness of what we are doing and how we are acting. This is what it means to be grounded, to be centered, and this alone will completely transform life as you realise you are not on automatic, but you are a fully concious and aware being who is empowered in every choice and action made.
It might not be easy, this is where some sort of mindfulness and meditation practice comes in, also knowing your body and your "Prakruti" as it's called in Tantra or your 'natural constitution', know what YOU need to do to feel grounded and centered and implement that into your life how you can. When you feel more balance your thoughts and actions will follow in that manner, another seat of self empowerment, we can begin to collectively act more from the heart rather than the mind. 🙏
