The Truth About Our Darkness

We don't really have a problem with peoples imperfections. We don't really hate the dark aspects we each contain. It feels like we do, but our feelings can be misleading sometimes. It's easy to point out and judge another for the things that aren't perfect about them. If you decide to take on this job, your list will easily become a mile long.

The flow doesn't arrive until you break past your barrier. Your barrier appears as that "thing" you feel prevents you from starting.

now, Now, NOW!

For the sake of my personal and business health, I must not get caught up in the now, Now, NOW-ness of anyone or anything else. It doesn't need to be NOW. I don't need to hurry. Despite what I hear, and how I (sometimes) feel, there is no race to get to where I'm going. There is only NOW. There is only this space I currently find myself in. I do my best when moving at my pace — at the speed and energy that pleases and works for me. The rest of the world can have their pace, and I can ...
