I love getting inspired by nature. I see a flowing waterfall and immediately become mindful of the boundless, limitless, unrelenting possibilities flowing from the river of existence. I hear the thundering of the rushing, falling impacting water that signifies to me the awesome power behind those possibilities. Feel the cool, gentle misting spray that wafts up from the continuously, crushing, collision of possibility with reality. Which one wins? Neither one: We do. You see the impact of possibilities on reality is what creates existence. Existence isn’t only reality, existence is reality shaped, molded, encouraged, pounded, chiseled and sometimes demolished by possibility. The resulting cool, gentle misting spray is where we can choose to live as we allow the dance of existence to continue on. Often times however we dam up that flow of possibility because it’s wild, and wasteful and seemingly unprofitable, scary. By giving in to our fear we stifle the drama, the majesty, the potential of the wild. The wild has produced some of the greatest reality in all of existence. Wild, boundless, oftentimes unproductive possibility has transformed present existence. Open yourself up to where it can take us in the future.
Many of us however, are terrified of losing today’s reality at the expense of tomorrows existence. We don’t want to lose what we have so we opt for safe, productive, status quo and ordinary. We lose that which makes existence a glorious, limitless awe inspiring adventure by choosing a reality that closes off, dams up and shuts down possibility. So let’s get a little honest. What has your dammed life produced? Where has your closed off river of possibility taken you. Many of us find ourselves out of work, out of money and out of patience. In large part through no fault of our own. All this from choosing the safe way, the closed off way, the dammed way. So what way will you choose from here on out? Hopefully you will join me in blowing up that river of life blocking dam. Release a fresh, forceful and freeing waterfall of possibility to continue it’s dance with reality creating an existence that impacts life eternally. Really, what have you got to lose?
Be Well In All Ways!
