DOES IT EXPAND YOU, MAKE YOU MORE OF YOU, OR ROB YOU OF WHO YOU ARE?
You get to live a life which inspires the fuck out of you just with what it is, the very essence and nature of just every bit of it lighting up your soul and exciting you so.damn.hard.
Have you forgotten that you were meant for something more, that it’s supposed to be flow, that there lies within you a place where certainty of being on path is absolute?
When the person is right –
When the other people in your space are right –
When the messaging is right –
When the empire you’re creating is right –
When the you who you’re being is right –
When the way you’re doing life down to the smallest choice you make around which damn salad to order, up to the biggest choices around, oh, I dunno, what you’re using your SOUL for –
Say it with me and then write it down in mirror writing on your own forehead, get it printed on a t-shirt and tattoo it onto your knuckles:
There are no shades of fuck yes.
And the thing or the person or the idea or the pathway which is yours will ONLY lighten you, expand you, lift you, and also, allow you to feel like you can now BREATHE fully.
Do you remember what it was like to breathe fully?
Back before you contracted your soul to the things,
which are, when all is said and done and all arguments and possible analysis completed, pros and cons weighed up painstakingly, and finally a place reached where you just don’t CARE anymore and it’s just time to be HONEST,
Do you remember?
Back before anxiety became the norm, that low-level and sometimes rising to mildly terrifying tight-chested clenching of fists please God let me get through another day way of SURVIVING, back before that was just how it is –
And you became used to it –
And bought into the story that ‘oh well, that’s life, and I do my best you know, I try you know, it’ll get better you know, no really …’
And you smile and you live really quite a good life thank you, you’re successful by any standard, except, of course, by anybody who actually gets soul, and ENERGY, by their standard, and except, of course, by the standards set and unshakeable by your own highest self.
Do you remember?
Back before you made lying to yourself a matter of course –
Back before you bought into the idea that it is normal to feel contracted, weighed down, heavy of heart, just a little –
Do you remember when you could just BREATHE?
Let me tell you what it feels like, let me REMEMBER to you what you already know, about what it means to be free, and to be.on.path. with ABSOLUTE assuredness –
(It’s very very simple my dear …)
(in fact more than that, your very being is light, lifted, almost floating into the heavens with joie de vivre because every cell in your BODY knows that this is yes, that it never could be anything other than yes, and that anything you TRIED to make yes before that just, well –
– and of course you knew it at the time, you KNEW you were lying to yourself, but now it’s been shoved in your face, a bucket of cold water from life itself thrown over your head, and it is impossible to now not OWN the lie –
and adjust accordingly)
And the ultimate test is this, if you STILL insist on not trusting yourself:
When you think about the thing,
the motherfucking meal you’re about to order,
the way you’re about to give the next hour or day of your life,
does it expand you and allow you to become more of you?
or does it contract you and ROB you of who you are?
Less you or more you, which is it baby, there IS no in between and we are NEVER static.
The person who is the right person will elevate and expand you, their very being will lighten and excite your soul, there will be no need to explain or analyse any of it or concern yourself with details or ‘how’, it will JUST BE WHAT IT IS AND THAT’S ALL THAT IT IS.
The person who is the not-quite-right person but sure sure a very nice person, maybe even an amazing person, and it really could be quite good with them, no really, and now let me explain to you all the reasons why is, well, hmmm, lemme ask you:
IS YOUR SOUL LIGHTER AND FREEER AND JUST ABSOLUTELY FUCKING CERTAIN or are you explaining shit and asking questions?
^^^ there is no in between.
The pathway which is the fuck yes to the SOUL pathway and every part of you down to your very mitochondria KNOWS that this is right will, when it presents itself to you, result in you being unable NOT to say yes to it.
All of a sudden your usual wonderments,
or planning out,
will not MATTER, and truly thou shalt not giveth a single fucketh and oh by the way that’s NOT just something you say, and you will just be ON the damn pathway before anybody including your own voice of doubt could pipe up about it!
As in the above things, so it is true in EVERY area of life.
Expansion, or contraction?
Lightens and excites you and makes you more of you, or weighs you down like a motherfucker and you have to start writing up lists and charts and columns?
You become your freest and most expanded self, or you fight to be at least a decent minimum of your base level standards and try to convince yourself you’re happy, you’re free, you ‘have it all’, no really! Hmmm?
Listen, I know there is that part of you still scared ‘but what if I never find or still don’t know what that ‘thing’ is for me, do I just make do with the best thing I’ve found or figured out so far?’
And I guess all I want to say to you today is this:
It’s up to you.
Always has been.
And with your every lemmepretendIamnotchokingtodeathhere breath,
You’re already choosing. And so you continue to create your life. The right life, who can say? But this is your life. And it’s exactly as you’re painting it.
What a pretty picture.
What a pretty life.
And maybe, if you’re honest, what a pretty decent impression of the you who you always could be and yet never were…
Just something to think about as you remember today, this:
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
