When you get to a certain age you have fewer years in front of you than behind you. You can stop and evaluate your life.
I believe that the first 50 years of my life I have spent trying to figure the world out, trying to figure life out. Working very hard to manage life to get what I want. I have spent all my energy wanting to understand motivations, people and systems.
Now I feel I am moving into the heart phase of my life. Letting go of the need to know, letting go of the insistence of understanding the world and people. Letting go of the hard work to constantly quantify people and experiences.
As a child I thought that if I understood and had knowledge it would protect me and keep me safe from the outside world.
As an adult I know…….
Most of the universe is unknowable.
So much of life is a mystery.
When I focus on needing to know, needing to understand; I narrow my bandwidth for the divine to flow in. I can only know what is in front of me.
The next 30 years I want to spend experiencing the mystery of life.
I want to flow rather than understand.
I want to love rather than evaluate.
I want to discriminate rather than assess.
I want to share the love that I came here to share, for myself and others around me.
If we all did this we would have a very different world!
“Courage and daring are coursing through you. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen.”
