There are many times that we hear the call, the call to do something. It can be as simple as changing plans for the day to changing plans in life. The "call" so often referred to, however, is really about changing your life. For each of us at some point YOU have to decide what YOU want YOUR life to be about. Really about. There comes a time when you ask yourself, is there something more? What others perceive and think of you, no longer matters when you get to this place in life. The real question of where you stand in YOUR truth becomes the most important aspect of life. It really comes down to are you happy enough? Do you feel enough joy? Enough love?
Joseph Campbell shared that this bliss in life is a choice. If you do not make the choice to follow your bliss, then life, no matter how hard you work at it, will end up "drying up"; life will become unfulfilling with no joy. I often refer to the "call" as doing the pictures. Many times you have no idea what these pictures mean, where they will lead you to, yet something within pushes you to accept on faith that if you simply do the picture joy will result. The act of doing the picture is the adventure.
We recently had a three day fire vigil; a three day ceremonial event that gifted all who participated pictures, callings, and healings.
For the first time, I asked students to step up to the plate, do their pictures, carry the ceremony, and weave their intentions allowing them to not only hear their call but to take action upon the call. Allowing them to hear the whispers and take the adventure. This allowed a very different adventure for myself. An adventure that reveals new pictures, hearing new whispers, and new perspectives as saw ceremony through the vision of others.
This is truly the bliss.
There does come a time in every person's life when YOU need to decide how you want your life to be defined. For me, I want my life to be defined by my actions not my words.
I was blessed in the past two weeks to gift 30 women � hr "Tipping the Scales" one on one session. Walking in action with the blessing of having soulversations with women I may not have crossed paths with otherwise. To see the world from their perspectives, to be in a place where I can share experience in order allow them to take action on their passions, and step back to watch as they walk their bliss.
A life journey is full of movement, full of actions, and full of adventure which can expand the soul into a new reality. As the emerging soul becomes aware of its authenticity remembering the birthing through time, the medicine and wisdom deep within is found. It is only when we apply the deep wisdom that we begin to expand into living a life of bliss.
Your choice, your intentions are the readiness to step back into the Divine presence of infinite love. But being ready, being prepared is not the end of the story. Many have become ready, they have prepared themselves; few will heed the call to push beyond becoming ready and placing the action necessary to truly engage in the call's adventure.
The only way creation of change is possible is through movement. It Is through action, through engaging the life's pictures set out before you, that the creation change occurs. One does not have to understand, but have faith. One does not have to know, but do. The experience of frustration, feeling stuck, or craving and yearning for something is created when the call is heard but not acted upon.
So as we approach this new beginning that comes with springtime, I challenge you ... I challenge you to step into the adventure. Action precedes understanding in the spiritual. I dare you to take the adventure. Take the adventure on the blissway of life.
