Many of us say we want something but are reluctant to get into the water and swim to the boat that will take us where we say we want to go. What is the source of this resistance?
The container called your life is made up of edges created by conditioning over the ages.
Initially the voices of the adult authorities told you what to do, how to do it and when.
You became a good little boy or girl (or not!) depending on how rebellious you were. That however is another story.
The table manners you have, the way you speak to people in authority, the way you drive and play and sing and dance are all constructs of your growing up.
Congratulations you have done a marvelous job.
Now you have an awareness of a new idea. There is something stirring in your heart that says there must be more to life than what you have.
Yes there is.
You have the luscious opportunity to create a huge new landscape for your life.
All you need to do is become aware of how you are acting, thinking, speaking and praying.
Once you bring awareness to your life in every moment you see that there is a way of being authentic that has you feel vulnerable.
Up until now, you might have said to be vulnerable is to be weak.
Now you realize that your vulnerability is actually your power.
People see you for who you are. You declare it and you act from it.
Then the world responds to a powerful magnet called you.
This is who you are.
