The Art of Mastery
So you see, I am revisiting an area in my life where i absolutely stuffed down emotions, accepted ideas and beliefs that were not mine AND now have the opportunity to see it from a different perspective. As I am being gifted with court side views, the entire game and its players are now transparent as I can see the lessons, (oh I mean gifts) that are abundantly rich in growth, understanding and unconditional love. There is an adage that keeps playing the background, "once is never - twice is always."
Here we go, take heed...Be the change you want to see in the world, People! We are all experiencing shifts, changes, transformation, it is your choice as to the process. The more you hold on to that which stunts or slows or stagnates your growth, the more explosive and uncomfortable the scenario. To ease this transition, I have an useful and proven technique: Act "as if" you are already that you desire to be. When you act "as if," you learn new ways to behave and begin to move beyond the choices and responses that you made in the past. You are now creating moments of choice rather than moments to repeat past reactions when confronted with current tensions or challenges.
What if we were required to live life from the "inside out," to be fully present to ourselves, our experience and our environment, NOW that is the change I want to see in the world and it starts with ME!!!!
