As I look ahead to a new year, I wanted to share a little bit of how my own life goes along these days…. To be honest, I get tingles on my skin. I get rushes up my spine. I get excitement of the unknown. Truly the complete unknown. The year ahead looks like a downright blank piece of white paper, that I am about to splatter with the brightest colors I can find… This is what has been my experience for the last 3 years.. Almost near effortlessness. After leaving Corporate Management after 11 years, I leaped completely into a dark abyss. I had Zero plan. Zero anything. All I knew was that life is fleeting right before our eyes. Like sand falling right through our finger tips… And fast. Our time here on this planet is but a drop in the ocean. A small blip on the screen in the vast scheme of things.. Some of us grasp, plan, struggle, trudge & push on.. But I’d like to tell you a little bit about what happened to me~ what I learned over the last 3 years since leaving the ‘cage’. I learned quite quickly that the more we grasp, the more we ‘try harder’, the more we work ourselves to death, the faster our life escapes us. I’ve learned that time can actually be slowed down, time can be harnessed, AND that life can become nearly effortless.. If you think about it, our life is not our own anyway. We are here right now, having reincarnated to learn our life’s karmic lessons. We are here living out thousands of lives over the centuries, & we have to keep coming back… In all the myriad of vastly different colorful lives we get to live out, (even if you dont believe this), I have come to realize that the reigns on life can be completely eased.. We don’t have to struggle. You can if you want to, but I left that life behind. I knew that there is another realm, another dimension that can be lived within…. So I said ‘what the hell’, & took up sailing lessons. And that my friends, is when life completely took hold & I feel I haven’t stepped off the wild ride since.
