Remember to not become BOUND by memories, plans, expectations and judgments. These things trap us in feedback loops-- they reinforce our ideas of ourselves, others and the world, when usually it would serve us best to drop all of that and start anew by truly listening to our hearts deepest calling. *
I'm often frustrated that folks offer lofty advice or wisdom but don't bring it down to earth and share their experience, so here's mine: For many years I had ambitions to become a serial entrepreneur, start and sell lots of businesses , get filthy rich, and retire by 35 so I could have all the free time in the world to just Be! I reinforced this story and created an identity that seemed to match that idea and path. I went to networking events, conferences, and had so many conversations about things that, ultimately didn't matter--that didn't improve life for those most in need...
And at some point I realized the story was just that. It was my ego's fabrication and was not what my heart truly wanted. I WANT to be of service to humans-- to bring light to others, to help people find greater ease in their lives and joy in their hearts. And I'm doing it now. I've found a practice and "career" that carries hearts, bodies and souls gracefully through the ebb and flow of Life. And I also find plenty of free time to Be along the way.
So, all of this to say, be willing to toss the current narrative and "life path" that isn't fulfilling and joyful. It's not worth it. We're here for only a short time. May we each have the courage to pivot -- to cast off the bowline and set sail into the unknown, where the possibilities of living in integrity with our sankalpa (souls purpose/longing/calling) is really the only path. Begin again! #yoga
