“What you seek is seeking you.” – Rumi
I was reminded of this quote last night as I spoke to a very dear friend and client about her wishes for 2014. Like many of us, she hadn’t created a resolution list because it would only entail the very same things that she hadn’t accomplished from years past. Lack.
What I reminded her, as I often do myself, is that when we see our desires as already part of us we come to them from a place of abundance.
From the realm of infinite possibilities we are able to make empowered choices rather than fumble around from a sense of lack.
We must remember that our deepest and most intimate desires grow from the depths of our soul. And the surest way our soul communicates with us is through intuition. The only problem is that many of us ignore that very sacred signal. We don’t trust it. We know better. It’s not the right time. Excuses, excuses.
I know I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: We right our wrongs so often, we can’t tell wrong from right!
We constantly make excuses for our behavior. Why we can’t do this. Or why we shouldn’t try that. Our excuses are our egos keeping us safe where things are comfortable and easy.
Well our homeboy Rumi has something to say about that:
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.” -Rumi
And this man knows his shit.
I leave you with this: Even if you’re not into resolutions and even if you didn’t complete the (highly recommended) Resolution Rewind, you can still jump forward with me to 2015 and look back and say how frickin proud you are for not making ANY excuses this year.
