Wouldn’t it feel great to not strive to achieve anything, get anything, or attract anything? What if we were simply content with what we have? Life would be blissful and serene.
Drop the dreams
All of our anxiety, our worry, and our fear come from wanting what we don’t have or what we think we should have. What if we could be joyously happy with exactly what we have? I don’t have a lot of money right now and I’ve never been happier. I’m tucked in safely. I can afford the courses I want to take online. I am healthy. I have supportive friends on line. What more can I possibly want?
Yes, I’m open to making stuff happen in the next 30 years (I’m in my early 80’s) but what that looks like I have no idea. I’m just taking it one day at a time and loving it. I have the freedom to stop and write an article like this, listen to a webinar, or learn a new skill – anytime the mood hits me. That’s freedom.
Act without doing
There is no effort in what I do. There is flow. Ideas are flowing out of me as if I wasn’t even here. I get an idea, start writing, and something interesting, thoughtful and relevant shows up. I just watch it unfold. That’s acting without doing.
Speak without intentions
I am speaking so deeply from my heart and the discoveries I make that there is no intention to persuade anyone, or tell anyone what to do or sell anything. I just have to share what I discover – whether it’s a post or a podcast or a video or a conversation. I care so deeply that I am like a mountain stream gathering momentum as I move along my journey. Yes, I listen to the feedback I get. Yes, I allow that to inspire new action. However, it is the flow of self-expression that is encompassing me.
I don’t lead
I used to lead. I used to give advice, council and direction. Now I just walk along beside you, helping when I can, encouraging where it is needed, working hard on my own awareness and discovery.
Be content with exactly what you have!
Whatever you have, wherever you are, it is absolutely perfect. There is a gift there – a lesson, an opportunity, a way to grow and change. Embrace these moments in your life. Bring them into your awareness. Shape them in a manner that moves you forward.
Let go. Accept this moment in this cycle. Want exactly what you have. There is no striving in being. There simply is…
