Inspirational quote – When you realize that no one else on this Earth can be like you, that no other soul can know the beauty, the sorrow, the light and the darkness that you alone are given to see, then you will no longer want to be like anyone else on this Earth.
You will, at last, be the fearless individual that your heart of hearts has called you to be!
Alternative Practice – Practical spirituality.
Health Tip – Stop. Drop and Endure exercise.
Let’s say you’re invited to be the leader of a new work group; you see an opportunity to take a particular relationship to the next step or you want to learn a new language.
The minute the thought of having this new experience passes through your mind, it is met by a part of your mind that does not want you to grow, which means it doesn’t want you to know that it is in charge of your life.
At that moment, you come to a stop.
Stop: You feel the stress and the angst grip you, like a contraction. That immediate stress is because a lower nature is trying to step in and make decisions for you. At this point, you must bring your entire attention to the present moment.
Drop: At this point drop all the thoughts and feelings that have come along with that stress. Those thoughts and feelings are there to bring you back into the loop.
Endure: You are going to have to let these thoughts and feelings go by.
Major Life Lesson – The limit of your present view is not the limit of your possibilities!
Life Purpose – Yes! I found my life’s calling when I was 12 years old. The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others by Mahatma Gandhi. The first service to others is to allow what is divine within us to lead our life for us. The way we do that is by being aware of what does not serve us.
- Best Advice – Listen to others as carefully as you can, but to keep your own counsel as to the path that you take.
- Personal Habit – Never start your day without remembering that the purpose of your life on this Earth is to discover yourself and not to prove yourself.
- Book Recommendation – Feeling the Shoulder of the Lion: Poetry and Teaching Stories of Rumi
