Finding your real passion
What is it that really makes you tick in life? What is it that gets you out of bed in the cold, dark hours before the sun rises - have you discovered it yet? Is there something that you would give your whole life for - something that is more important even than breathing?
Well, I can safely say that I'm one of those fortunate beings to have discovered the answer for me. And in sharing a reflection, you might well find some inspiration for you too...
Living, breathing, thriving, growing, evolving being
Many people are thrown off the scent of true destiny by fate. They're fated to be distracted from their dream because they settle for too little too soon. They can feel their soul yearning for something, but rather than riding the wave a little longer, working a little more diligently, having a touch more patience, instead they fall off the wave and onto the soft shoulder of placation: comfort eating; filling the quietness with noise; another distraction; some kind of physical attainment.
But what is the soul really all about?
There's a living, breathing, thriving, growing, evolving being at the core of everything that you do, everything you achieve, accomplish and even fail at. There's a you which is yearning to create and yet to 'whom' the creation itself matters hardly a jot.
Cherished, held, nurtured and supported
What matters most is the dream itself... the sense of interconnected flow, the knowing that you're a part of something bigger, a deeper meaning, a transcendent dialogue with the divine that speaks into the core of your being. And this co-creative dream has just one purpose:
To express in every moment the fullness of who you are, right now!
If you can touch this truth and align with it, if you can keep surrendering to it, then I believe something will happen to you that happened to me:
You realise there's nothing else in life worth having, because there's nothing else that is real going on. What could surpass this superlative sense of being an interconnected part of the universe - cherished, held, nurtured and supported as if nothing else mattered?
A never ending weaving and dancing intimacy
Yes you'll create things. Yes you'll having deeply loving relationships. Yes you'll taste the real juice of life. In fact you'll drink these bounteous pleasures with a sensuality you've never known before. Because you don't try to own them, they don't own you. You're simply flowing through them, expressing through them, evolving and growing through them.
Your evolutionary expression becomes the meaning of life. And the whole of life helps you in that 'goal' - a never ending, weaving and dancing intimacy.
It's something you can never fail at and always win, no matter what takes place in the physicality of life.
The soul is never the same twice
It's not easy though. Sometimes finding and unleashing the fullness of being can be immensely challenging and tough. Yes there are times when it will feel effortless, like falling off a log, where the letting go is the toughest part. But then there are other times when you have to work hard at it, deeply confront the moment, transcend through the internal contractions and resistances to the moment. It's because there are greatly different facets to the soul, and different blends want to express at different times.
And it's never the same twice. Each moment is always unique and so the expression will always be unique - providing you've worked to find that degree of flexibility and malleability.
Can you go hungry? What happens when you're irritable? Can you keep going when you're dog tired? Can you still go when all around you are giving up and telling you not to? That's exactly when to persist, to push on through. I call it "Alchemy of Transcendence" - when you're in that zone, that's when pure, unadulterated magic happens.
Live the Dream
I encourage all to begin living the dream. To stop efforting for a particular goal or physical manifestation, rather to let these become the effects of your own bounteous causality, the infinite potential of You...
continually unfolding and expressing the awesome majesty that you are.
Each of you is totally unique. Each of you has an expression which no one else can accurately copy. You came into incarnation for a reason: to express something which no one else can. And the whole universe is conspiring to help you reveal it.
Who are you, now in this moment? From the very simplest of expressions to the grandest earth shattering ones, what's the greatest that you can be?
