I speak to you both personally and professionally (fully) and invite you to assess and examine yourself. Pause is required and of course a desire to want to know to enter into this subject matter. Its a treasure hunt only this is about the inner values that we know as satisfactions, contentedness and fulfillment's. If you journey this way, here you will find who you really are and not pretending, imitating, substituting or denying to be. This discovery also brings a bonus to it...
REST & RELAXATION
When the transition took place (long ago)of going from hunter-gatherers to farming, trading & domesticating a different-type mold of a person was formed. Still rugged, this character became more focused & as such developed into person who would self satisfy, correct & sustain. Think: Going from dependence to IN-dependence a journey we all must take at some point. Without insight we perish
THE TRUE TESTS
We tend to forget that we exist for more than food, shelter and clothing. Once we discover a way to go about our welfare and how to support the well-being of others, the true and effortless life presents itself. The signs are less effort to produce more results, satisfaction from a little instead of a lot and a gratitude in the moment you are in wherever that may be. Quality is about and quantity is left behind as it should be
THE INSIDE FORMS THE OUTSIDE
In the animal kingdom, the outside forms the inside. Any creature or life-form that lives in Nature, out in the open and wild is running at optimum but formed by the environment but only to survive. Living comes second and it is a daily battle of the fittest. However in the realm of the human being, the inside developing, discovering and adventuring matters. Why? It forms your character! Is it better or worse?
LET US BEGIN
At some point in ones life, they must test their mettle, their make and resolve as to who they are and why and that comes from the doing aspect of life. Remember to include the "how' we go about it or we lose the kindness within ourselves that makes us human-kind. Called "trial & error" in the everyday parlance we begin the life journey for breadth, depth and width. Each one begins at their own timing & circumstance
There is no formula to go by. Each persons adventure is unique and self-developed as well as influenced by others, the environment and come what may. The history of mankind is replete with stories of mankind going forth to discover for themselves what lies ahead. Faith was their eyes and ears. Courage propelled it
Each person moves at their own speed called desire (a mysterious prompt) which is the preferred. However if stress is applied, one can exceed their own expectations, time-line & limitations (their thinking) and accomplish what we would call the impossible or unimaginable. The poets calling it "dreaming" & then we add the legs. All Explorers know this. They seek the "edge" of all things looking for discoveries.
THE WHO AS IN WHO ARE YOU?
The answer is different for everyone. Start with who you are not... if you want to hit the ground running. From there you will see for yourself (highest form of learning) who you really are and what you can do and not do and how well... and a handle of confidence is introduced. From their the next step is.....
Ownership is a level of confidence that one measures for themselves and stabilizes becoming self-evident and more truth-based. This realm will not falter or fail and becomes your default self. Using your abilities from this position is satisfying and predictable. In time, a bonus comes forth just from BEING yourself....
This is where the who am I goes on point without effort or prompt doing all that is necessary to prevail either for the self or others and is a delight to behold at work. Everyone can attain a mastery of any subject providing it is your own calling and not an imitation or substitute. The difference is explained as such...
SCRIPT or FLOW?
When someone speaks from the heart instead of reading or repeating the subject, it becomes self-evident & has a gentle authority about it. It is made of the character that was meant to be and is. If one has learned this and created it instead of it (the true) forming you, the artificial is upon you. While convincing & capable of results it lacks genuineness and credibility. It lets you get-by. You exist but do not live!
THE EFFORT RUNS OUT OF POWER
Time exposes this wanna-be or intruder-trespasser. The genuine person who commands from within themselves has a source referred to as living waters that never run dry and flow without effort. The fabricated source (s) will exhaust and expose themselves at some point. You will know which...
THE POETS ACCUSE
If the point or purpose was to just live to exist we have already done this or are doing this in the moment we are in. This takes no effort. It's what you do with this existence that is calling upon you, waiting in the wings and wanting your contribution that matters to self and to others and finally the big picture itself
TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENT
Take stock or inventory of yourself. Success, wealth, fame, power or excess need not be visited. I am speaking of the inner places, the realms of conscience, the place where your own hindsight testifies to what could have or should have been or not & done better. Assess now so that later we are found not wanting
