Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
You have to love.
You have to feel.
It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up.
And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness.
You know how every once in a while you do something and the little voice inside says ‘There. That’s it. That’s why you’re here’ and you get a warm glow in your heart because you know it’s true? Do more of that. 🦋
We are six weeks into the new year. It’s time to check in with our aspirations, intentions and goals for 2019. It’s time to celebrate our wins and to tweak our efforts where we are lagging behind. It’s also time to recommit ourselves to what we are aiming to accomplish this year or to let certain ambitions go because they are not true to what we deeply desire to experience. The test question for manifesting any dream is ‘Am I willing to run through fire and ice to have this dream come true?’ If the answer is yes, we keep going. If the answer is no, then we may want to consider letting it go for something that is in more alignment with our truest passions. 🦋
Stay curious my friends and you will be forever young. Curiosity ignites our whole being into a fervent arousal, pulsating with enthusiasm, passion, and a desire to explore the unknown, to learn and understand something new about someone or something. Today ask yourself, ‘what am I really curious about’ and then dare yourself to satisfy the tingling buzz. Remember, the future belongs to the curious.
I feel privileged that I have lived on this earthly plane for 55 years and I am looking forward to another 100 years or more .
As I journey forward, I reflect on my personal philosophy of believing in the power of my truth … My Authentic Self … A Self that is rooted in purpose, driven with passion and empowered to transform all things in life through imagination, vision and the courage to make it so.
To know this is a gift of a life well lived. I am blessed.
When we give ourselves permission to have real moments of solitude, we are giving ourselves the gift of connecting to our ‘Authentic Self’… the seat of our wisdom, creative genius, passion, purpose, our gifts and talents. By cultivating solitude, our life opens into new vistas of possibilities…
There are two distinct Freedoms in our world: ‘Freedom To’ and ‘Freedom From’. When we focus on ‘Freedom To’, we naturally expand our horizons and move into new vistas of being and living. When our vision is limited by ‘Freedom From’, our life tends to be tethered to the very experience we desire to be free from. An authentic act of rebellion springs from our passion for the ‘Freedom To’.
