So what do you do when you find this happening in your experience? Me, I guess I retreat. I sit back a bit and wait to see what developes. Sometimes this lack of gung and ho manifests in inertia or, worse, a bad case of the flu. The latter is how it manifested for me this week. Down I went, just as I was gunging along and somewhat in the flow of ho.
The blessing here is that I know it is not a permanent thing. Even now, as I get ready to take yet another nap after taking cold and flu medications and drinking delicious homemade chicken soup brought to me by my neighbor, I know I will rise again! I will find my enthusiasm. I will again feel enterprising. I will be ready to work particularly on the work that supports my inner artist and makes a safe and supportive atmosphere in which I can create. In fact, as I write this, I feel the gung ho in me beginning to rise again.
What do I do when my gung isn't ho? I rest. I reflect. Sometimes I talk to my little animal companions. They are always gung ho, which reminds me how much we can learn from our dogs.
Then I get up and I gung again until it all comes to ho.
