You Are in the Best of Times

October 27, 2011 by admin  
Filed under Purpose and Passion

I’m growing/making changes in my business and life. “Reinvention” is a lovely term. It sounds like I know what I’m doing. Like some Lexus engineer in a white lab coat, retooling designs based on crash tests, forecasts, and a genius’ scratch pads. All I’ve got is scratch pads.

I need to take actions, but there are many choices and they mean so much. I feel like a contestant on a game show, where it’s all on the line. Choose the wrong thing and you’re buzzed off the show, kicked from the candy store, in front of millions of people who criticize you. Damn, I want to wake up in the palace already, where life is handled and champagne is served at 4:00 p.m upon a golden tray. Some days, I don’t want to be a hero. I want a butler. I don’t want to find my secret strength. I want to watch re-runs of Gray’s Anatomy.

I know you know what I’m talking about.

It’s not always easy to be really alive, knowing something bigger calls you, knowing you can’t stay where you are, and knowing you don’t always feel up to the assignment of “being great.” And just so you know, I already have amazing success at doing work I love. But the quest is the quest. It’s the journey to continually realize more of who you are, fly higher, burn brighter, shed excuses.

One day, seeing as the Gray’s Anatomy life plan was out, I wrote a letter to the frightened part of myself. I’m going to share it with you. I want to speak to all the frightened parts of all the heroes at large, some hiding under the covers, others feverishly searching the Internet for what they think will answer them. I want to help you put things in perspective. Help you run another mile. Take another breath. And not just survive–rejoice.

“Dear One,

I know you just want to get through this time. But I want you to woo this time. Don’t rush. Take your time, because nothing that is yours, is a matter of harried timing. Everything occurs in its own right hour and you simply can’t breach the laws of Reality.

I am proud of you. You will make all the right decisions for you. And you will make new ones on the spot with new information. You will have a thousand chances. Everything is a chance. Step out of linear time into inspired time. Let padlocks burst off ancient doors, dried rivers flow again and flood, payments and contracts come in ways you can’t imagine– and know that anything is possible for you. Discover a path you can’t imagine by following your desire. This is not a life of calculation, but one of revelation.

The voice that tells you that you only have one chance to get this right is a voice that only has one gnarly, decaying brain cell in its head. It only has one agenda, the agenda to make you wrong. Really, do you think this voice is “protecting” you by shaming and threatening you? Any advice that torments or limits you is not advice. It’s damnation.

I am here to tell you that you are made of astonishment. You are finding your way, even when you are losing it. You will prevail. You will always end up where you belong. It’s in your soul’s DNA and the programming of every particle of life dust. It’s not about the facts of your situation. It’s about the blossoming. You are learning to tune in to the signal that will take you all the way. You are learning to listen to nothing in this life, but that which strengthens you. So will you –right now– thank yourself for everything, everything, everything, and I mean everything, past, present, and to come, no matter what? Now that’s a viable prayer. It’s all that matters in the end. It’s what the journey’s all about.

Besides, there are a thousand outcomes that will help you thrive. There is no outcome that will not bless you. You bring the light with you. You’re the homecoming queen thinking she needs to win the election. You’ve already won. You’re already chosen. It’s already done. The whole world is simply waiting for you to choose yourself. It will wait forever with baited breath. You are that valuable and necessary. We all are.

No matter where you find yourself, you can always choose again. As long as you have breath, you have choice and chances. There is no maze, there is only this moment. There is no cheese in the distance. The cheese is here. It’s everywhere. It’s only complex when you do not breathe in self-appreciation and self-forgiveness. You’re not meant to be in a maze. You are meant to be in amazement.

Do take in the privilege of being alive, having choices, drama and desires. There are those who are dying right now that would give anything to test their metals once again, explore their capacities, reach for the highest within them, be engaged in the fray of living. They would give anything to be where you are. There are those who are aching to have the chance you have right now—the chance to encourage themselves and try new things and keep going no matter what, until the light runs out. There are those who are fondly looking back to times in their lives, when they stood where you stand right now. The times you are trying to run from, some say were the best in all their lives.

Acknowledge your courage. It is not easy to be born strong and to crave higher ground. You have an adventurer in you. You are made of quester fabric. You knew there were wonders and you came with a satchel. You would never be happy at the end of your days, having played it airtight and guarded, never knowing where your adventure could have gone. Especially since you do know where the power of love is meant to take you.

You know this world is not quite what it seems, not stable and made of mortar and brick, but really constructed of ideas and thoughts and preferences, nuances and choices. You know it’s made of magic. You want to realize the power of your thoughts. You know you didn’t come here just to buy a nice car. You came to have a ride.

Of course you’re frightened– but it’s because you’re in the game. Your blood pumps and your breath quickens. You’ll bleed if the knife cuts and that’s a good thing. It means you haven’t given up. You’re still invested.

You didn’t come into this lifetime to avoid desire and risk and get to the finish line without a smudge, a scar, or a difference in your point of view. You want to have dared. You want to have put everything into it. You want to have been broken open, shaken, touched, moved, for something you wanted, something you believed in, something you trusted in the deepest part of your being. You won’t look back and wish you’d tucked your tail in and given up. You won’t wish you’d sat it out and watched the others on television live amazing lives. You wanted to get wet. You wanted to know. You did know.

Yes, dear one, it’s good to be afraid.

It’s important that you’re living a life that matters.”

That’s what I wrote. That’s what I know. That’s what I’m holding for myself– and all the awakening hearts who are gathering in this revolution– of evolution. We are many, by the way.

Now I’ll leave you with what Edward Abbey wrote in The Benediction:

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets’ towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you¬ beyond the next turning of the canyon walls.”
