Order allows us to explore and take risks

Order is natural. Having a sense of order in one's life is different for different people. It is essential to be spontaneous and take healthy risks in life.

Order requires discipline. Order creates structure. Parents create structure for their children so they feel safe enough to explore life. The same is true of ourselves. Order creates an anchor so we feel secure enough in ourselves to explore. We can venture beyond the experiences that we can control. We can expose ourselves and be vulnerable.

Order creates a channel for our strength can go forth from the inside. It allows us to trust ourselves and find confidence.

The opposite of order is chaos or random events. Chaos makes it difficult for us to count on anything. Counting on the things that are reliable gives us a foundation to go into the unknown. A launch pad. A base camp.

So what creates order for you? Is is straightening your desk or your house. Is is meditation, yoga, Tai chi, or exercise to create order in your mind and body? Is it is journaling to get closure with your day? Maybe it's catching up with friend to feel like your relationships are intact.

Creating order might be a s simple completing an experience by thanking someone that helped you. My teacher to call this not leaving any "dangling participles." It was his way to say tying up loose ends. Loose ends leave things unresolved and waste emotional energy. Getting closure and completion with experiences allow us to create order so we can be present and available in new experiences.

So taking life seriously means having order in our life. It allows us to be at our best when it counts most.
