Hello fellow “everyday guru” seeking tribe members. Sometimes the best way to attract an ordinary guru to come your way is to simply start your day with an inquiry. Just stay with the inquiry. Watch what happens next. Stephan (below) asks a simple question that could change a person’s life.
I think you are fairly seasoned in the stuff of which you write. So, I ask you this, “what do you mean by freedom?” You use that word often.
Thank you, Stephan Wright MD
Freedom to me is freedom from thinking from past programming. Freedom for me is experiencing sweet liberty from the reactive, mechanically inclined mind. Inner liberation is daring to delve into the unfamiliar. This is where innovation begins. This is where startlingly new creation begins. It is where good poetry, wonderful dance and extraordinary music begins.
When you tell yourself you are nobody – that can be an incredibly freeing fact! Now you get to act from nothing, from no place in time or space. WOW! How freeing is that? You’ll find that you find plenty of new things to think about for the next month. What might come from that? True freedom is worth the sacrifice of the conditioned self – aye? Then any lily in the field is fit to guru you.
Blessings to you Stephan
What if you decided you were nothing, you were nobody? Now, you could decide who you were without the past influencing you. How freeing would that be? That’s what folks do who recreate themselves anew. Dares’t you?
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
PS You must catch your programmed nature before it leaps into your day if you are to be free to get out there and creatively play.
