Standing in the ’now’… facing into the dark, vast empty Space that is my potential…. I AM the Light that will shine into existence some expression of meaning in my life. All things are possible, now that I am ready, willing and able to let go of my fascination with what has been (trusting QuantumTLC™ to attend to that, as required) that I might manifest what can be. It can and will be whatever I choose it to be.
In a ‘reality’ so deeply entrenched in prizing the past to ensure the present is a robust and accurate replication, choosing ’not that’ can be seen by those still tethered to this approach as a sign of (pick one!) illness, confusion, absence of logic and/or sanity, defiance, blah, blah, blah. This is easier than considering the possibility that they, too, might choose ’not that’ and be part of the creation of a very different world. “Just tell me what I need to do and I’ll do it.” It is not that there is anything withheld, it is simply that there is nothing to tell.
So steeped are we in the habituation, we are often stymied in figuring out: “If not that, then what????” Perhaps it is not ’the what’ that matters – perhaps is it being willing to dive into the vast, dark, empty Space and see what we find. No paths. No footsteps to follow. No boundaries. Nothing.
Every day is unique. Some make way for a profound insight. Some are marked only by the cloudless sky and the brilliant, sunny day! Each, in its own way, invites me to stay present to what presents and see where it goes. How do you put that on a resumé?
From one paradigm to another – without a bridge. Just a leap and a willingness to explore what presents. A paradigm shift cannot be had by increments. It demands a deep trust in your own capacity; a deep breath that precedes the moment of choice; and a deep longing to reach the other side. In combination, the old paradigm falls away… and the new is awakened into your reality! It’s not difficult… and it does require letting go of our long-held illusion that what we already know is ‘truth’… simply because it is what we know.
As I look back over the last three decades of my life, I recognize that so many who have come through these conversations have thought that once had in the program room or a ‘coaching’ experience, they were done with that conversation. Few have been able to recognize that in order to live ‘it’, the conversation never ends. Layer after layer of insight and revelation… and still, another layer awaits. And perhaps more importantly, the way of having that conversation perpetually expands. In our strategy-driven world that seeks content certainty, a world that is sourced and nurtured by a process devoid of content makes no sense at all. And yet, the only other place I would choose for mySelf is the vast, dark, empty Space, itSelf.
At a level of matter, I often wonder: what would happen if I were to choose ‘done’? In this moment, I am most curious about what continues to keep me here.
