THE VITALITY CODE

 

NATURE'S CODE FOR EVER-EVOLVING HARMONY IN DIVERSITY AND EMPATHY WITH ALL OF LIFE

          Offered by Shelley Ostroff

The Vitality Code refers to Nature’s primary code and principle of self-organizing and self-regulating thriving living systems. The Vitality Code ensures that all parts of a living system receive precisely what they need in order to manifest their unique potential in mutual nourishment with the interconnected whole. It is a code that cultivates whole-system health and healing with exquisite efficiency.

The Vitality Code recognizes that for humans to thrive the entire planetary ecosystem must thrive. ​As we self-organize in alignment with the Vitality Code, we learn to attend to all parts of the biosphere (people, animals, rivers, soil, social systems, ecosystems, climate etc.), ensuring that each receive precisely what they need to play their unique role in our interdependent Web of Life.

 

The Vitality Code recognizes that our talents do not belong to us alone. As in all of Nature, our unique gifts are nourished by the whole and must, in turn, nourish the whole. This understanding of the profound interdependence and complementarity of all parts of the whole inspires us to learn from and with Nature about deeply cooperative, efficient and life-enriching energy management. 

 

Applying the Vitality Code to how we re-invent our social systems including governance, economy, education, agriculture, infrastructure, media, justice and others, provides an uncompromising anchor and life-affirming compass for managing our current global levels of complexity with Nature’s efficiency and precision.

DAY 4: Empathy and the Vitality Code

Reflect on and attune lovingly to that which is most nourishing to your soul and body. Giving yourself this heartful space of self-attunement is an act of empathy with self. How can you best ensure that you receive this?

Reflect on and attune lovingly to the needs of the animals, plants and foundations of Life that you encounter in your daily life. How can you best contribute to their well-being?

Sense into how you can create a more heartful energy exchange with the larger community of Life though your intentions, actions and life-style.

Empathy, the Vitality Code and Radiant Diversity: Sense into how the process of becoming more empathically attuned to our own authentic feelings and needs and those of others, we become more accurate in ensuring that all parts receive precisely what they need to become all that they can be in ever--evolving harmony in diversity.

How do you see yourself as a part of this co-creative force? What is your part to play? 

Sense into your unique passions and skills - your unique life history, life-lessons, and sense of calling.

What do you imagine would be your most radiant expression of yourself in contribution to your personal environment, your local community, the global community, and the Web of Life?

Imagine yourself expressing this in its fullness.

What are the conditions you would need in order to manifest this? How can you co-create the conditions for your fullest co-creative expression with the community of Life?
