the issue is that we are.
it’s what doesn’t let us rest at night. it’s what erodes an “okay” day into something barely tolerable. it’s what weighs on our minds when we’re toiling away, pushing forward in tasks, careers, obligations, routines and rigmarole that serves someone else, but always leaves us feeling empty, stuck, bored, apathetic, unfulfilled and incomplete.
what’s worse, is when we’ve gone so far as to train ourselves right out of trusting our intuitive impulses, our heart stirrings, and our higher truths. what remains are many questions, and the many variations of quiet desperation. we’re now fully in survival mode.
sure, you’re strong enough. but, life isn’t only about strength. that’s just a symptom of the idea of competition. true strength lies beyond effort, beyond force, inside the vast arena of surrender, and love. there, is lightness.
the body must adapt. it takes the cue and initiates protection mechanisms. our very cellular structure remolds itself: “we’ll keep you alive, dammit!” our minds mix the mortar, while our hearts prepare the bricks. shut it down, turn it off…
5, 10, 20, 30 years go by… gosh, where did the time go?
plans were made, plans were forgotten… sort of, but not really; it’s tough to let go when nothing on the horizon ever really looked promising. situations and circumstances arose, efforts were begrudgingly invested, challenges were faced, compromises were made, yet something still and always eluded us…
what if, wherever you are, whoever you are, however you are, is perfect? what if, now, you turn the page, and begin a new chapter? shift your point of view: yesterday, five minutes ago, thirty seconds ago, a single thought ago, is irrelevant; it only exists in your imagination. you’re reinvented with every breath! summon a new courage!
what if, instead of needing to know the outcome, and planning every detail, you’d take one small step – based on what’s immediately exciting, interesting, desirous; that which genuinely resonates – and remain open, without expectation as to results, to whatever may come? what if it’s either gonna be a passionate yes! or, forget about it?
unsettling! panic. anxiety. but…excitement! curiosity. wonder.
a door is open.
love your life,
