Big idea: your days are your life in miniature.

As you live your hours, so you create your years. As you live your days so you shape your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you think, the food you eat and the actions you take or do not take are defining your destiny – shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for. Small choices lead to giant consequences over time. There’s no such thing as an unimportant day or choices.

Being able to transform

Our fears takes awareness, commitment, courage and practice. For most of us, it’s not easy. But as we become better at doing so, our ability to be free, authentic and express our big dream increases dramatically.

Many times what we learn about love is counterfeit. It is love masquerading as getting our emotional and other needs met and meeting those of others, a reward offered for satisfying our heart’s desires.The first thing to remember is that only through having a deep inner awareness of being love itself are we able to see the distinction between love as a noun and love as a verb, to being itself without a subject or object upon which it is placed or directed.

Without this distinction one can become addicted to what they think is love, but it’s really love masquerading as getting our emotional and other needs met. Many people are addicted to love but real love is not addiction nor is addiction love. Love addiction is unhealthy attachment to people, euphoria, romance or sex in an attempt to get needs met. Or when we unconsciously look to others to fix our fear, pain and discomfort and tolerate or inflict abusive behaviors in the process.

Or how to be free from yourself? Contemplating the difference is an interesting revelation of our motive for entering the spiritual path. After all, enlightenment is not a commodity to be coerced into one’s consciousness. It is not a quantity of something, it is a quality of being, yearning to be discovered and expressed through and as you.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

Being who we really are, expressing ourselves honestly, being bold and going for what we want in life can cause a great deal of fear in us. Many of us run away or hide from our fears because they seem scary, uncomfortable or embarrassing. However, most things that will help us to grow in life doesn’t show up without any fear at all.

As we strive to live with authenticity, it’s inevitable that we will encounter quite a bit of fear along our path. Most of us erroneously think that as we evolve in life our goal should be to get rid of fear. Unfortunately, completely ridding ourselves of fear isn’t possible or even desirable. Fear is an essential part of growth and can be used in a positive way for authenticity and fulfillment – if we are willing to deal with it in a direct, honest and conscious way.

This is how most people stop themselves.

They tell themselves things like, I don’t believe it would work, I don’t have enough desire for it. I don’t have enough passion. I don’t trust yet. I guess I have to be more of a believer before I start doing this. And so they are all hung up on these very deep emotional ideas.

Darkly sentimental deficits are soon showing up as waves. Not believing in yourself, not believing in a process, not trusting this, wishing for that, hoping, seeking confidence… all the fearful, Gothic and romantic concepts that we allow to stop us.

You can’t be all things people!

The best among us get that, yet how often do you find yourself saying yes when you really want to say no. Every time we say yes to something that is unimportant, we are saying no to something that is important. “Yes men” and “yes women” never create anything great if they are constantly saying yes to the unimportant. What is unimportant? Anything or anyone that is not moving you in the direction of the highest vision for your life.

Say no to the friend who wants to meet over coffee to gossip.

Say no to the co-worker who wants to spread his negativity and cynicism.

Say no to the relative who laughs at your dreams and makes you doubt yourself.

Say no to the social obligations that drain time from your life’s work.

Know what needs to get done over the coming weeks, months and years for you to feel that you played your best game.

Say yes to that and then say no to everything else. Sure some people around you might not be happy. But would you rather live your life according to the approval of others or aligned with your truth and your dreams? Where are you with accomplishing your dreams for this year? We are more than half way finished. Contact us for support.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.” ~ Howard Thurman

You are here for a reason! Your soul is eternally calling you in the direction of your highest path. The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. When you find your gift, you would have found what lights you up. And when you find what lights you up, your calling is to give it away.

We follow our calling by following what lights us up. Your light is contagious. Your inner light is craving to be shared by those around you, by the world at large – but mostly by you. When you share your unique light bit by bit, you light up lives around you. And one by one, you inspire them to light up too. It’s a chain reaction. And before long the whole world lights up. Your light is contagious.

Joy is a decision.

It is a conscious choice. But it is even more than that. Joy is an obligation. We have an obligation to express and share our joy with the world – our unique calling. In this light, joy is more than an attitude; it is a potent and powerful source of energy. One of the major reason that so many people are depressed – living joyless lives is that they are not living their unique calling – they are wearing someone else’s shoes.

The best hope for a revolutionary transformation to take place to create a world that works for everyone is a worldwide, grassroots revolution of love in action, based in authentic community.

In this community we have to engage in open conversation and communication between elders honed by sometimes brutal experience and the wise and impassioned young, hungry for a way out of terminal disaster and for a way of life in alignment with their hunger for a new way of being and doing everything.

We long to be connected with others in an authentic community. What steps can we take to create authentic communities? Authentic communities welcome new people from all backgrounds. Authentic community does not have a max capacity there is always room for someone else that may need and can offer what your community is up to. Authentic communities collaborate with others. Before change can take place, leaders must recognize the need for intentional collaboration regarding policies, procedures and decisions. Only collaborative leadership can make communities succeed. Authentic communities empower those on the same mission. The greatest path to success is the path that helps lead other people to it. Authentic communities doesn’t just include people, it involves them. We should absolutely be welcoming of new people.
