You are about to discover that you are powerful right now. This journey is about letting go of force. There is nothing for you to do.
With each piece of resistance you let go of, ANYTHING and we mean ANYTHING, you desire, will occur with ease and joy. You will feel like your dreams and goals are just happening to you. It will seem like you are doing nothing and having it all occur naturally…worth playing for? Yes it is!
There is nothing for you to do. Can you be a at peace in advance? Before you have all of the components of a dream life in place?
The dictionary defines being as one’s basic or essential nature; personality. What is your essential nature? How would you describe the core of your being, right now?
Are you skeptical, open, neutral, optimistic, fun, demanding, peaceful, aggressive, cautious, available, joyous, worried, intense, loving, kind, good hearted, serious, determined, or outrageous? If we look at the core of who you are being, your essence…what word describes you? It doesn’t have to be from our list. It could be anything you choose.
The word that I feel describes the core of my being or my essence is: ______________
Now, here’s the tough question. What is at the core of your essence? For example, if you said the core of your being is “determined”, then what is underneath determined? What are you trying to accomplish by being determined? What is your motive to be determined? What will being determined do for you?
Take a couple seconds, right now and think about your word. What will being ____ do for you?
Let’s go back to the example of being determined. If you really got honest about being determined you would see that it’s about getting somewhere or doing something. Being determined comes from thinking that the world must be manipulated to get what you want. It’s about doing. It comes from the fear based conversation “What I want might not happen, so I must get in action to insure it!”
I have a good buddy named Bob who owns a ground-breaking technology company. When we were discussing the growth process that Bob and his company have been going through we noticed, right away, that it was struggle, effort, frustration, he was pissed off and suffering. Bob said his essence is Perseverance. When we look at Perseverance, that’s an action word, not a being word. Perseverance is a lot like “determined.”
This is a survival conversation generated by a fear that if you don’t get in action, something bad will happen and you won’t survive. Your mind tells you that you aren’t going to survive unless you do something to get somewhere. All doing is survival in disguise.
