If You Want Direction…
YOU: H e l p !!! I’ve lost direction. This way or that— don’t know WITCH way to turn! Feel like I’ve hit a brick wall. Been stopped dead in my tracks. Red light on e’erthing– no green light in sight. Right. Left. Can’t see what’s ahead either way. Hurting and need a rest. Sore and tired, but gotta keep going.
ME: Wait a minute, just slow down and stop. Is your mind telling you there’s a red light, or the breath you tried to catch that you could not and now you’re dead!?
Still reading? I thought so! Not so bad — you are ALIVE. So, is it feelings telling you to avoid moving forward? That you may accelerate faster than ever and leave behind everything you know — if you let yourself really feel?
OR, are you the always-always-never person, like the TV-show cab driver (In Living Color)? How IS that prison of self-restraint working out? When do you allow yourself to experience progress or prosperity on the terrain of your world?
This is YOUR earth, damn it. Claim it!
