Face the Fear

If you think you have the answers, you stop asking the questions. So it’s a very good thing that you’re asking questions and searching for answers!

It’s a good thing that you don’t know. Not knowing is the beginning of asking.

Do not fret uncertainty, doubt and the unknown. Friend the fear… examine it… take it out to lunch. Explore what it’s trying to tell you. Then send it on its way.

Face the fear and it dissolves like the night at dawn.

Your Purpose is the Horizon to Aim For

Purpose is essential to a well-lived life. Purpose is your reason for being who you are and doing what you do. But relax. You don’t have to have it all figured out before you pursue a life guided by purpose. Just head in the direction of what inspires you.

If you’re feeling agitated and uneasy, that’s a good thing. We’re most inclined to move and change when we’re uncomfortable with what is… and pulled by what isn’t yet.

To change is to be uncomfortable with what is and pulled by what isn’t yet.

A Call from Your Soul

When your soul wants to communicate with you, how does it do that? How can it get your attention, especially in this increasingly attention deficit world where we’re constantly occupied.

Discomfort is one way. If you’re unhappy, depressed or uncomfortable where you are, chances are it’s a tap on the shoulder from your soul.

Finding yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery. The horizon of self is always moving and keeps you engaged in the pursuit. It is evolution by design.

An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.

Song of Aragorn

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

~poem by JRR Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings
aka, Riddle of Strider
