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.
When we start the internal dialogue, does the voice ever say ‘that’s a brilliant idea’ or ‘let’s get started straight-away’ or ‘wow, you’re really good a that, do more’ and so on?
It normally starts with ‘why would you do that?’ or ‘she is much better than you’ or ‘last time you did that you messed it up’ and a whole raft of sabotaging comments.
Essentially among the 65,000 average daily thoughts are the ongoing sabotaging and repetitive ones, that’s the vast majority, that are mainly the same that you have every single day. They are the minds weaponry to stop the fragile ego being put at risk. They stop us doing and keep us thinking, no risk.
If we step away from that, if we build the habit of just doing the first step now, not in a minute or a bit late, but right now. If we instead of thinking, we stay conscious, then we avoid the repeating patterns, we prohibit the sabotage, we free ourselves to use the mind as the wonderful tool that it is, the tool that will manifest our creativity that flows from our soul and essence.
Creativity comes from the soul and is manifested by a mind that has the space to do that and where we are not identified or associated with the mind and its fragile ego. It is when we choose to use the mind as a tool not allowing the mind to use and silence us. We are the soul, the essence the being and the mind is part of our human carnation that allows that essence to express itself in the external world.
