Hello Spiritual Warrior! And welcome to spring – a time for renewal, birthing new pathways, awakening to our best version!!!
At this time of year, I am always touched deeply by the words of Henry David Thoreau in his timeless classic Walden:
We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us […] and did not spend our days in atoning for the neglect of past opportunities, which we call our duty. We loiter in winter while it is already spring. In a pleasant spring morning, all men’s sins are forgiven. (Spring.19)
Let’s take these words to heart right now and leap into the fray. If you’ve been holding back on moving forward, trying something new, or making a decision – trust that right now, you have all you need to make the most conscious choice.
Just yesterday, someone stopped me on the street and told me she had wanted to register for the Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teacher Training but she was afraid. She actually uttered these words, “Who am I to be a teacher of something I have struggled with?” I asked myself the same question almost 15 years ago – but I leaped… dove in headfirst… and committed myself to an entirely new direction in my life.
In hindsight, it was the boldest move I ever made, the most nourishing step I could have taken, and the seed for all the gifts I have received since then. So let’s dig deep and step into our power this week. If you’ve been holding off having a difficult conversation – trust and make the call. If you’ve been making excuses that you’re not good enough to risk something new – give yourself permission to own your impact. If you’ve been fearful about stepping forward with a decision – close your eyes, place your hand on your heart and feel your courage.
And if you’ve been delaying making a commitment to personal development… in the words of Red Redding in The Shawshank Redemption: “Either get busy living or get busy dying!”
In honor of these words, register this week for one of the last 3 spots of my upcoming Teacher Training (starts online June 15 – & meets in the SweetSpot in October) and together we will transform the world as we transform ourselves. Trust & keep meditating. Aham brahmasmi baby!! peace. -davidji
