Every great essay, movement, invention, innovation, exercise begins and ends with what I call my theory of genius-ness. That moment of intuition and courage when spirit delivers a message on the wings of angels.
“I have a great idea.”
The pure expression of purpose and wakefull-ness. My idea is so great, I am going to share it. No problem. No worries. Greatness expressed as purpose. that inherent confidence and courage of ‘I will share what I am here to share and speak from my heart.’ The words, let us not fight our function, come to mind. Allow this expression of joy and support for all that is intended to flow forth into the universal symphony. The magic and miracle of life in the action of the intuition of what is possible for peace and love on the planet. The greatness that lives in each of us.
Joseph Campbell stated “What if we choose not to do the things we are supposed to do? The principal gain is a sense of an authentic act – and an authentic life. It may be a short one, but it is an authentic one, and that’s a lot better than those short lives full of boredom. The principal loss is security. Another is respect from the community. But you gain the respect of another community, the one that is worth having the respect of.”
We all adjust and adapt to change everyday whether it is comfortable or not. We can revise things over time, as we experience the now and it is gone and in a new new there is something evolved in ourselves that brings the joy and love and expression into light rising with each and every present. Emerson talks of this idea in his essay on Self Reliance and in its depths we see the truth born in the hearts of each of our expressions here on the planet:
The soul knows where it belongs not some of the time all of the time. In remembering this fact we return to love with each majestic breath. Self Reliance as resilience practiced through the courage of intuition.
What is this self reliance that lives to fight another day remembering the light of resilience that remains no matter what advancing chaos and the dark. For me there is no more spectacular example of the ability to make it work than iconic business woman, comedienne and inspiration Lucille Ball. At every crossroads in her career she broke barriers, when she didn’t fit she didn’t say “better pack it in.” She found another way.
In light of all that is taking place it is important to remember that flexibility does not mean you are losing your power it means you are gaining in your ability to dance with your circumstances demonstrating your fullest dynacism and fantasticness of purpose and confidence in all that will be and all that is manifest destiny.
Life is meant to be lived out loud in free expression of its greatest expression fully alive and awake into the horizon of life’s greatest lessons in continual change from light to dark, to life and death, through the seasons and beyond.
Keep today in your heart as one for greatness, for the completeness in the possibility for growth. Allow the courage of your heart to land in the deepest recesses of possibility and let it go. 9/22 flight of the soul will be embarking on its third year of Love Land, blazing forward with the message “for the next 100 days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way. I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace, I won’t talk about what isn’t working I will experience what is.”
I look forward to the next journey into love and hope you can join us. Check out Mel’s Love Land here.
Lots of Love,
