Growing up, friends and family always made fun of me and my obvious 'rich inner life'. They would call me out in the middle of a day dream and quickly, I would retreat into reality. I eventually only 'thought' about 1st world life problems, school, work, finances, relationships and with those, the worry, doubt, guilt, anxiety, concern would creep in. Over time, I met the divine, a great man, meditation, yoga, a pilgrimage and my fathers illness and passing that all helped snap me back into daydream space and back into a rich inner life of goodness, hope, beauty, faith, love and endless possibilities. Now, when I have a stroke of inspiration, a thought or idea of transformation, I follow through, I take action and usually, if it's the right path, it happens. I don't suffer through the 'what ifs' or the 'you're crazy for thinking you can do that'. Our brain, body and experiences has us well-equipped for this. Our sympathetic, fight, flight or freeze has us covered for real threats if they occur. But what we've lost is this ability to work through the doubts and the worries and get to the good stuff and the possibilities. There truly is so much good stuff if you just open your eyes and your heart and focus on those. Gratitude journaling helps for this. And prayer. And meditation.
Now my rich inner life stays quite rich and happy and full of light. And in turn, my reality and outer life does too. So choose wisely, choose your truth, choose love. They won't let you down, I promise.
