Willingness Trumps Trying

We forget the power of taking ownership of our thoughts And actions and stepping in to this action from a place of clarity and discernment.

Trying is misdirected. It is noncommittal and flaky. Trying means we don’t believe in ourselves. Trying is laden with excuses preparing us for the justification of failure and it side steps us out of fear.

Willingness states loudly “I AM HERE”. I am prepared to face the pain, the fear, the discomfort. I am willing to learn, grow and adapt. I am prepared for whatever may come and I choose to expand because of it…!

Trying is a way out. Trying is a facade. It gives the appearance of presence but is actually distant and contracted. Trying is for show. It pretends because it lacks clarity to discern and assume the responsibility necessary to grow.

I tried for so much of my life. Projected the illusion of presence, strength and commitment, but was never really there… always running in my mind waiting for the ‘next thing’ and short-term gratification to stimulate my senses.

When I chose to be willing and not be attached to an outcome (presence) I became free and became committed, excited and enthralled by the journey. I ceased to be false and I only committed to truth aligned experiences.

Willingness gave me perspective, foundation, wisdom and a yearning to be courageous. All other virtues expanded and were amplified because my willingness to grow, learn and show my power to the world.

Willingness is power. Trying comes with excuses and a never-ending trail of ‘what ifs’. You’re better than that. You always have been. Perhaps somewhere along the way you were told you weren’t… I call bullshit. Now you / we have an opportunity to be WILLING to explore possibility and our power…

One is glad to be of service.

Keeping It Real

For us to love each other we must respect each others anger.

Fierceness is an expression of inner strength; violence is an expression of frustrated, unconscious impotence. To disagree when in Union is natural.

The Holding Through The Storm

Men, this is for us. To work through our ‘stuff’ – to drop the facade, the ego and ‘do the work’. To come to peace with who we are and be the conscious warriors we were born to BE!

Role-mate Or Soul-mate?

A role-mate is born of desperation, survival and fear. We get together to survive, not thrive. We don’t share deep values, we are here to serve primal needs only. Our intimacy is empty and scarce. We base our relationships on convenient agreements of doing in the world. Soul-mates come together to thrive, expand their connection to self, each other and the world. They are here to grow and explore their sexuality, spirituality, contributions and more. They are clear that they are here to serve the greater good of society and themselves. Which are you???

The Pain Of Change – The Pain Of Control

Most recently I have experienced the pain of change, difference, the unknown and the difficulty that comes with not knowing if life will play out as I wish or foresee it to you.

The battle within with respect to creating a a balance of allowing and not being attached to taking ‘active action’ and being hyper focused – the internal tug of war of contrast and when to play the card of each…

To Feel Without Judgment

How do we feel? When feeling becomes so painful, so raw, so intense, so deep, how do we surrender or be present to these feelings?
