Without the Reverend Michael Beckwith, I would probably not be writing this blog or creating art for a living. He is the first person I ever heard use the word “blisscipline” and was the spark that helped me ignite this new phase of my life.
I was thinking this morning about how I got where I am right now and how freaking scary it was (and sometimes still is) to jump out of my safety net. It is no wonder that most people stay “stuck” in their current life situation because they falsely believe it’s safe. This belief comes from the idea, that if what we are doing comes with a steady paycheck and is reflective of the status quo then it is safe – our bills will be paid, our 401K will be secure and there is surely a place in Florida for us to retire nicely at the ripe age of 65.
Here’s a little secret…we are not here to strengthen the status quo, we are here to move mountains. We are here to share our talents and gifts with humanity because this is what creates evolution – emotional, spiritual, global, personal. And…we do not have to give up abundance to do it. In fact, when we are following our bliss there is no limit to what we can create.
I think Michael Beckwith says it best in this video – “Everyone is here to find their little way to stretch the mind of humanity…you may be the person who creates a movement.”
