This brief dance

There is always a little something we hold back from the world. Why? Fear.

Sometimes, for many, there is more than a little, there is nearly all of our true essence that we fear to reveal. The suffering comes from the holding back, from the waiting, from the ‘shall I?’…’no better not’.

Revealing our true self means going deep into the wild, to be on the edge, to risk it all…what are we all waiting for?

This brief dance on the stage is all we have, it’s very brief, and we fear the audience. A blink and it’s gone.

Leap, dance, sing, jump…go crazy, do whatever that beautiful amazing inner essence and soul wants to experience. Don’t wait the clock is ticking. No one cares and if they do, it doesn’t matter. Do and don’t think.

It’s easy to be popular

There is a formula if you wish to follow it, that will get you lots of likes, followers and make you popular, but it lacks any soul, meaning, or purpose. It adds nothing but more noise to the continuous human story that we can all add to. Fluffy cat pictures still work, by the way.

It’s not about finding a big audience, it’s about finding your voice and finding something that you really want to say, something that will add to the ongoing human narrative.

There might not be a huge audience straight away or ever, but with patience and sticking to what really matters to you, it will resonate with the people who really care about what you care about. You can become a shining light for them to follow.
