What Would You Do If You Werent Afraid?
If you had no fear would you live your dreams? Would you speak your mind? There would be no comfort zone to keep you imprisoned. I guarantee to you that it is your fear that is keeping you from living the life of your dreams.
If you werent afraid, where would you live, what would you do?
Would you fly to the moon? Would you dance naked in the rain?
How would you live your life if this were your last day? What if it was just the beginning? a great Zen Monk once said….
“Inch, Time, Foot, Gem.”
What does this mean? It means that each moment you have on this Earth in your body is worth more than a priceless gem!!
It all depends on how you choose to live it. What makes us different than a butterfly, bee or duck is that animals live by instinct we have something called “FREE WILL” This means we have the freedom of choice. Although the great late George Carlin used to say “The only real choice you have is between paper or plastic“!!
I would like to change this to we have the possibility of free will. Unfortunately most of us are products of our environment, of our past!! Most of us will not break free of our conditioning. We aren’t even a choice in the matter.
This is not being negative, it is just the TRUTH!!
The human race is like a caged human animal. Our Spirits have been broken. When was the last time you jumped out of bed excited, enthusiastic, ready to take the bull by the horns excited to take on a new day? When was the last time you played, relaxed had fun?
We all have whats called an internal map of reality. These become filters to the world. Most of our beliefs have been programmed into our minds, holding us prisoners. We need to wake up and be aware of our thoughts and the patterns of our mind to change. We shall focus on our dreams and goals. Stay the course my friend!!
How do you know when someone needs encouragement? If they are breathing!! Encouragement is oxygen for the soul. Lets lift each other up!!
If our comfort zone is keeping us from our dreams why do we stay there? Because its comfortable. We don’t know any better. The emotions of discomfort have caused us to build a life to keep us from feeling those feelings we call negative emotions. They are just feelings my friend.
We have a built a life around avoiding those emotions we call bad. We have built themes around those emotions. We need to learn to include and embrace those emotions. Here are a few; Sad, angry, humiliated, shy, tired, embarrassed, lonely, frightened, jealous, etc. In pursuing your dreams you will be confronted by these emotions, I guarantee it!!
Just let them be okay. Be Aware and know that they are a part of the journey. They are obstacles that you will overcome in time. They are signs that you are stepping out of your comfort zone.
