|"Adventure is worthwhile in itself!" So said this inspiring heroine of action. So yes, she did vanish. So, who among us will not?|
"The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one's appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship."
Can you tell this issue will be about taking action, and living your life?
"The most effective way to do it, is to do it."
“Courage is the price that
Life exacts for granting peace,
The soul that knows it not, knows no release,
From little things;
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear The sound of wings.”
~ Amelia Earhart
When I explore Power Chakra with students, we affirm: "I have the Right to Act." And then I often add, "~ and Pay the Price."
Because ~ it is in that juicy last bit that we truly find our liberation and power! In taking our chosen actions, and being responsible for the consequences, we write ourselves a life that is fulfilling ~ and that contains bloopers! Haircuts, interviews, fights, accidents, speeches, oh, yes ~ a myriad of scenes we'd like to take back and exchange!
I don't know about you, but it seems to me all my suffering is over past events I'd like to change, or future events I'd like to control. Can we perhaps relax and enjoy the outtakes, as well as the grand movie scenes? Can we make our best choices, yes, our best mistakes, and trust that they are our vehicle for learning? And then sit back, butter the popcorn, and take pleasure in the learning path? Like yes, oh yes, this life IS for bloopers, that is why we are here? Great relief, no? The Gods must be laughing. And smiling. And . . . applauding.
"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward."
