For quite a while now I’ve felt a calling to write about something different than nutrition and fitness.
I have known intuitively that I need to follow this calling. But I haven’t found the courage to actually do it.
I’ve been praying for courage every morning.
And every morning I decide, “Today is the day. I’ll take the first step.”
Then a few minutes go by and I convince myself out of it.
What the hell am I going to say?
I don’t think I have a full article of worthwhile stuff to write.
It must not be the right time. I’ll wait for the right time.
Another day goes by. Then another. And another.
And before I know it, years have gone by.
But the calling is still there, and it’s getting more intense.
I feel I need to put something else out there. But I don’t even know what really? I feel like I need to share the most important, most powerful stuff that I’ve learned over the last several years.
How do I categorize it? Spiritual stuff?
Who the hell am I to talk about spiritual stuff?
What makes me think I’m so special?
Then I find all kinds of reasons why all the great spiritual teachers are different than me.
Most of them, like Wayne Dyer, had a hell of a hard life.
I don’t have a story like them.
I’m not worthy of talking about such important things.
Yet life keeps knocking on my door “Yo Tim! I’m still here buddy. When are you going to start writing about the more important stuff?”
I should know by now to listen.
The knocks don’t go away.
They just keep coming, increasing in intensity, until they become painful.
Not listening to the impersonal self, will not lead to good things. I know this with certainty.
I also know, that listening isn’t really that difficult.
Scary. Hell yes it’s usually scary.
And ultimately, listening leads to more happiness.
You just have to listen. Just accept what you’re being asked to do.
Do your best and don’t judge the outcome.
Just put one foot in front of the other. Again, not judging outcomes. Just listening and moving forward with the instructions.
This I guess is my first “official” article on a topic other than nutrition and fitness.
I’m still scared shitless. Mostly about the judgements that may come from people I know.
But I feel this is what is being asked of me right now. So, even though I’m scared shitless, I’m going to listen and take the next step.
There were a series of serendipitous events this morning that lead me to this video. It spoke so strongly to me, it gave me the courage to take this first step. Funny how life works that way.
I hope you will hear your own personal message as you watch this video. And I wish you strength and courage in listening to what your Impersonal Self Is Asking from you.
