Fear is typically what keeps us from acting. It’s notorious for causing me to overthink and go into analysis paralysis. But whatever is going on with me (maybe you’re feeling it, too?), it’s definitely keeping that from happening. I feel much less attached to rational thought and a lot more connected and comfortable with just going with the flow of whatever is presented to me.
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, ‘and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice ‘without pictures or conversation?’ So she was considering in her own mind whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.
I think that’s a good thing in a lot of ways. It’s embracing possibility without fear of failure. And the universe is definitely working in mysterious ways. It appears to be opening doors. They’re doors I never expected or saw coming – or maybe I did… I’m finding that a lot of scenarios that I’ve dreamed about over the past two years are actually starting to play out in real life. It’s really strange, but yet, here I am.
Things are unfolding. I have no idea what’s coming. Or maybe I have a vague idea, but I don’t know how it’s going to arrive or when. I think the biggest thing I’m learning here, and maybe it’s what you’re learning, too, is to really follow my intuition. I’ve always followed my intuition, but not without a certain amount of completely freaking out about it first, particularly when it’s a really big decision or something that has a lot of potential to blow up. But this is different. This is following it without attachment to a certain outcome… it’s following it just to see where it leads.
I suppose, if I don’t like where it goes, I can always change direction. And for whatever reason, I’m totally comfortable with that right now.
What’s going on in your lives? Are you feeling this strange sense of empowerment as well? Tell me what’s up.
