(Spoiler Alert: He Eventually Gets Found)
(Originally posted 8/15/16)
I was walking among my tree friends listening to one of my favorite mentor's podcasts (Say that three times fast). On the recording was a woman talking about something many of us can relate to. She was saying that she tries to recreate the feeling of love before she does anything important because she doesn’t want to take action from any other state. Do you relate?
I used to think that I needed to do that too. If I was unhappy or angry, my mind would tell me that it was a bad time to write. If I felt uninspired, I believed deeply it was a bad time to create. I was sure this was my heart. I’m never surprised at how disguised our ego can be. My ego was the one keeping me from taking action until I felt a certain way. A way it deemed "safe" or "appropriate". The ego has a sneaky way of playing the “until” game. I need to wait to ask that guy out “until” I lose ten pounds. I need to wait to do yoga “until” I’m in perfect health and my body can handle it. I need to wait to ask that agent for representation “until” I feel more confident. You get the point. It’s all ego. You and I don’t need to wait “until” we feel a certain way to do something.
We can easily take action from what occurs to us in the moment. The present moment. We need not plan. What feels right now? Go in that direction. Loosen your grip. Have fun. Be playful. And don’t wait. Write when you are unhappy. Have sex when you are sad. Go to that job interview even if you’re nervous. These “less than love feelings” don’t mean you shouldn’t do what your wisdom and common sense tell you to do in the moment. It’s just your ego’s fancy way of keeping you from your greatness. And this world needs your greatness. If you'd like to come back home to your soul, your heart, your light, I've got you.
