A travel day. I'm getting so efficient at packing up I actually finished early.
I even went, gassed up the truck first... ate breakfast... did some work that needed done... and still had time to kill.
I couldn't check in to my next space until 3, so I drove slowly to kill more time. Arriving here at just before 3.
If I had been 30 second faster, I would've hit the deer that leapt across the interstate and slipped on the pavement in front of me.
If the small car going the other direction had been fractions of a second earlier, their world would've changed drastically as they plowed into the creature that was desperately trying to reach the other side.
Thankfully, the timing was perfect. No one was injured. Everyone was awake and aware at that moment (and I'm sure that other driver was VERY awake after). There's something to say about that creature. Mindlessly dashing in front of the speeding traffic. Rushing with only its destination in mind. Instead of taking the time to SEE what's around it. Taking the time to BE completely in the moment. Are you mindlessly darting around?
Or are you listening?
It's listening to your intuition, moving when it's time to move. Being still when it's time to be still.
I've crossed another border - making 14 states in 2 months time.
A human construct that can stress people out or bring them peace and clarity. Yes it's limited, but, you are EXACTLY where you are supposed to be in this moment. I recently recorded a Podcast "Fearless Purpose with Brian Cox". We talk a little bit about time. (Here's that link, it went live this morning. https://anchor.fm/brian-cox62/episodes/Changing-the-World-Through-Art-with-Special-Guest-Jessica-Tookey-e8n2gj )
This human existence provides only a limited amount of time, so using it wisely is necessary. What that looks like in your lifetime is going to be very different than anyone else. YOU decide.
What's your goal? Your dream? Have you discovered your soul purpose?
We are each here on purpose, for a purpose. If you aren't sure what yours is, take some time and BE STILL so that you can find it. The answers are within you. A great book "Life Visioning" by Michael Beckwith helped me gain clarity on mine. It showed me that I am a Wayshower. Guiding people off the rocky shores and toward their own brilliance - their truth. Their destination.
Much like a lighthouse. I must keep the light shining to show the way. The keeper of the lighthouse had a very stressful, and secluded, life. Their time - especially before electricity - was spent focused on that light. Keeping it burning so that the travelers could find their way safely to shore. I'll be visiting the Cape Hatteras lighthouse shown in this picture (pic found on Google). I've always found lighthouses fascinating.
We each are meant to be that keeper of the light. There is someone you are meant to help. Someone who needs you to shine so that they may find their way.
Are you willing? As Brian said in his speech at the Unstoppable Influence summit 2019, "if not now, when?"
Time for each of us to wake up and tend to the light within.
Time to be a Wayshower to those who haven't fully awakened and seen their destination.
As I said in a FB post several days ago ...
Start now. Stop waiting.
"You either start now, or it is not going to happen for you, and you are going to wake up at seventy years old (or eighty, if they are already seventy) filled with sorrow that you let your dream, your passion, gift, fall by the wayside. You start now, as is.
'As is' is the portal to creation, to new life.
'As soon as' is a form of delusion and therefore soul death." ~Anne Lamott
I hope you all will start your dream TODAY. It is through living our dreams that we show the way.
You are right on time. Whenever you start, it is perfect timing... even if you're 70. Just don't get to your deathbed without having gone for your dreams. I just hope to ignite a spark to get you moving.
Because it's time.
Love you all! TTFN!
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
