Theme of the Day: Trait 52.2 - Focus on the other or not is key today

Trait 52 - Keeping Still (Mountain)

Trait of Stillness - Focused and Channeled Energy

Temporary and self-imposed inaction for the benefit of assessment. Concentration benefits from stillness and withdrawal. A passive rather than active energy.

Trait 15 < Trait 52 > Trait 39

Life Work Theme of: Service

Purpose fulfilled through Form

This Trait is part of the Strength of Concentration, A Design of Determination, linking Drive & Stamina (Trait 52) to the Energy Resource (Gate 9). Gate 52 is part of the Collective Understanding Circuit (Logic) with the keynote of sharing.

Trait 52 is energy under pressure that is focused on assessment, the raw power to concentrate. There is a passive tension in this connection from Drive & Stamina that is looking toward Trait 9 for an outlet. Once the 52nd Trait finds something it deeply identifies with, something worthwhile to channel this energy toward, the tension is balanced between Drive & Stamina's pressure to keep us moving forward, and Trait 52's power to help us sit still and concentrate. Before this balance is reached, however, we can find ourselves vacillating between restlessness and depression, bouncing from one thing to the next, unable to find the self discipline to withdraw once again into our stillness and concentrate.

There is no physical outlet within Trait 52 that can direct or relieve this passive tension within us except to focus it. Without Trait 9, it is difficult to know what activity or details to concentrate it on.


Quality 2 - Concern

Elevation: The pause that is initiated to benefit others. The pressure to restrain energy for the benefit of others.

Challenge: A selfish and abrupt pause that may endanger others unnecessarily. The pressure to selfishly restrain energy at the expense of others.
