2014 turned out to be an extra-ordinary year for me. It was not easy but as Stacey and I and others (much wiser) say, we often discover more about who we are through life’s challenges than when the road is easily traveled. Last weekend, I was reminded of this again when the characters from “Into the Woods” start out on a path which “is clear and the light is good” and in the course of the story, the path becomes barely recognizable to them.
I will be sharing more throughout the year about this past year’s transformative journey and my personal growth; however, I would encourage you to take time now to reflect on what you gained in 2014. The challenges you faced and what you learned from them. The triumphs, large and small, which continue to define you. Maybe, you were reminded like me that we live in a constantly changing universe, and our ability to “keep doing our inner work” is how consciousness evolves.
Here’s what Patanjali wrote almost two thousand years ago on the subject of inspiration. Click here to listen to Wayne Dyer discuss this passage in his lecture on the Wisdom of the Ages.
Let it be a guidepost to you in 2015 in your endeavors to fulfill your potential, whatever the task.
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds.
Your mind transcends limitations, and your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties, and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
Enjoy the journey! Namaste
