Leave the fork in the draw

If I said to you ‘get a fork out of the draw and stab yourself with it all day long’ the response would more than likely be ‘no!!! that’s crazy…why would anyone do that?’

Yet mentally we choose to stab ourselves with a fork all day long and make ourselves suffer from our mind and its ego. We choose how we react to anything, whether or not to let it matter and affect us. We choose whether or not to accept what is or suffer denying it. We choose to resist what is and suffer trying to make it different when that is impossible.

Leave the fork in the draw and be kind to yourself and choose not to suffer.

Step away from the package

I feel like I’m at a family wedding, that until the alcohol flows, everyone sits on either side of the dancefloor looking at each other and only kids, who have no fear of ridicule, take to the dancefloor.

I can sense the sabotage of my mind playing with me, finding excuses as to why today isn’t the day to change things up with my blog.

So I am still lost in thought, and that never ends up with anything productive, on where to go, preferring to go back to the same style and content rather than take the plunge.

It’s funny in many things in life now I have learnt to take the plunge and just start without thought, knowing that a small step is all that is needed to move forward. No surprise my life is moving where I want it to go. However, as the blog is going out into the public domain, the fear is greater.

Just stop the thinking and just do it. It is the only answer, but strangely knowing it does not make it any easier to do. I think that when I surrender and stop the resistance to changing and let go, then the natural flow of creativity will come to me, the universe always brings the answer.

I need to write from the soul and step away from the package.
