What am I pretending not to know?
What would the person I intend to become do next?
These queries influence my thoughts and actions whenever I am confronted now with making choices about what I will do with my time.
Since knowledge doesn’t apply itself, and since the answers to MY questions are within me and since I have a set of tools to direct my thoughts to create productive outcomes, I no longer have the excuse of pretending not to know or not to find out what to do next.
This doesn’t mean I know everything… What I have drawn from this heightened personal accountability is that I have a responsibility to go as far as I can see, in the direction of my definite life purpose.Just as the headlights of my car allow me drive across the country in the dark of night, seeing only a few yards ahead of myself, so mind and thought will illuminate the way in the blinding light of noon when the way may be uncertain.
Pretending doesn’t work when you stand before your dragon in the cave of fears…
As I move across the threshold daily, hourly, and into the unknown, I come face to face with my pretending. Pretending doesn’t work when you stand before your dragon in the cave of fears. Only courage…the ability to act in spite of fear… allows me to surrender to truth and trust in the transformation process.
How cool is it to be able to thrust your arms in the air…to breathe that first heroic breath that inspires and invigorates the confidence of victory. I have defeated no one but my own past record. I have learned and earned a new story to tell. I am a great and living miracle present in the now, asking questions…
I have embraced a fragment of the person I intend to become that I defined in some great detail weeks ago. I ask the question… What would the person I intend to become do next? The focused silence clears the mind. Thoughts rise and fall. Clarity, confidence and competence emerge and accelerate with each success.
The journey is unending.
The journey has great purpose when taken in service of others. Changes within become the cause of the external evidence of the growth. Bringing together thought, feeling, belief and action in rapid succession to be what I will to be is richly rewarding and of infinite consequence. Little by little, with persistence and kindness and gratitude, I experience I AM.
Thank you. I am in awe.
