That Scary Unknown Space Is Where All The Magic Is

December 10, 2021

There comes this crossroad every day… where who we have been and who we want to be met.

Every day this intersection happens, and every day we make a choice as to which path we will take. The old familiar path, repeating the very same day over and over, or the wild unknown.

The black abyss of who knows what…
Which feels scary … so… we repeat the same day again.

And day after day it passes without stepping into the new behavior – and we have absolutely no idea what we are giving up to stay comfortable.

All we know is what we aren’t losing.
We have the experience of life that we have and we don’t want to lose that… we want to protect that.

I had no idea that when I launched my business I’d make $1M dollars 25 months later. NOT ONE CLUE and I’d never ever known that’s what I was giving up.

>> I’d never have known what I gave up. <<

How astonishing is that!?
At the moment all I knew is what I could lose. I had no awareness of what I may gain
if I had the courage to go all in and really do this thing.

And I can’t help but wonder what magic experiences I have given up just trying to protect what is… trying to stay safe.

It’s a fun thought because it’s never too late.
What if everything in the scary unknown is EPIC AWESOMENESS lol… just ridiculously extraordinary amazement… just waiting for us to opt into it…

What if it’s vastly beyond anything we ever imagined?

What if…..

My Conversation with Thich Nhat Hanh

What?! You mean… compassion for others includes the woman lying and hurting the man I love? It includes compassion for her?
That’s easy for you to say.
You don’t have a wife or kids that you love like I love them.
What’s that you say?
That’s how you love EVERYTHING? All humans? All animals and sentient beings?

Not My Place To Get Someone To See the “Truth”…

For as long as I can remember I have always felt responsible for helping others see the things that they cannot see… the boyfriend on drugs, the way they are being taken advantage of, the abuse happening…
I have always suffered deeply to see anyone else suffering ESPECIALLY when I can see a way for their suffering to end!
This is what drove me so hard to break out of all of the abuse I was experiencing, go to school for 10 years while working and being a single mother with almost zero child support, start my business and make my first Mill in 2 years… THAT is a lot of drive, and it ALL came from MY WANTING TO END OTHERS SUFFERING.

What I Resist, I Empower

I see this belief lately that “standing for a world where race & religion do not matter is naive.”
(And abusive)
It’s popped up a number of times in my feed and then once now in my own life.
”It’s exclusive and doesn’t account for all the biases happening today. Anyone who believes this only believes it because they don’t get it. They aren’t the ones experiencing the racism, sexism or etc.”
I understand the basis of this.

Someone Told Me “You are not as enlightened as you think you are.”

And I wondered what that meant? What an unusual statement?
I realized that there’s a whole entire culture referred to as “woke” which couldn’t possibly believe more differently than my mentors who are considered “enlightened”. Which was she referring to?
And I chuckled.
I’m definitely not either…
Talk about a wild time to exist looking to find your way to a life full of joy and peace!

Meditation Breakthrough

New one hour meditations….
I’m beginning to see what’s underneath all the crap….
I’m wildly resisting the reality of what’s happening to people and animals in the world… It feels like it cracks my brain and will burry me to accept it.

I Was Being A Hypocrite

Sometimes we expect people to handle things even better than we are capable of handling them simply because society would agree that’s how it should be handled.
But that’s still hypocrisy…
Just because we can make the best argument for that being how it should have been handled… (womennnnnn lol)
