Risk is being ourselves

The biggest challenge we all face is letting go so that we do the things we really want to do.

We are tricked by our mind and its sabotage that it is easier to walk away from truly letting go and to stay in the safety of where we are.

The challenge is that this only causes us more turmoil and longer-term it becomes harder and harder.

We resist the things we fear the most, as the mind creates the fear and the further it is from what it sees as safety the more psychological fear it will create. We do not fear what we do not want or desire, we do not fear something that we are not interested in doing, or experiencing.

Yet this is the guide, fear is the guide, because safety is suffering and the mind and risk is living, is experiencing, is joy, is jumping off the diving board, and being truly ourselves.

Our greatest self

If we want to know our greatest self it is the one we are currently too frightened to create.

What we fear the most is the guide to what we’d like to be the most.

The mind sabotages the most the things it believes puts us most at risk and furthest away from what it perceives as safety.

Risk is better than safe. Love is risky and fear is easy. Nothing comes from easy. We have to be brave enough to let go of fear and open up to love.

The greatest things come from love and that requires us to connect to our inner essence and walk away from the mind’s control.
