I am on a hero’s journey. While I may venture on many different quests in my lifetime, I believe my current quest is to find out who I am. Or maybe who I am is not set in stone and I can choose how I want to develop. If that is the case, my quest is to determine who I want to be, and then become that person.
Maybe it’s a little bit of both.
There was a very interesting idea proposed in the last webinar, featuring the following idea. We can have anything we want in life, but not everything we want at the same time. The idea resonated deeply with me, as I have at (times) been overwhelmed with desires for/the possibilities in this lifetime. It’s as if this life is a buffet and I have no idea what to put on my plate first. This is absolutely what I call a first world problem.
Find your SELF in SILENCE
As the course comes close to the end (or the beginning; however you choose to look at it), we have been challenged to participate in an extended sit. We normally sit for 15 minutes a day, and our wonderful guides have enticed us to see what wonderful things may come from embarking on an extended period of silence. Time to be with me, myself, and I. From the outset I was excited. The hardest part was making time to be away from communicating with people. In figuring out how/when to do it, the hardest part was choosing my own growth over spending time with loved ones. It felt selfish, in a way. I’m blessed enough to have supportive people in my life who understand, and as the week rolled on, I began looking more and more forward to the time I will have to just be. I’ll let you know how it goes!
