Clarity comes from time in the desert more than time on the mountaintop. Wandering in the wilderness is part and parcel to clarity. During practice recently, one of my few shared her beliefs about the ongoing path of ascension. I reminded her and the team this is a myth. Nobody lives up and to the right.
No team. No company. No community. No country. It’s just not true. The path for all of us is one of discovery and most discovery is made when we slow down in the valley, sometimes forced, sometimes by choice. The best amongst us, schedule wilderness time before we find ourselves dying of thirst in the desert of poor choices. One of the most common mistakes I’ve seen in myself and this work is the mistake of chasing more, especially more good. Damn.
Too much of a good thing is oftentimes the road toward ruin.
I’m slowing down and giving myself margin to rethink the path I’m on. Clarity is coming. Real. Hard. OPUS. What about you, friend. Are you too busy running? Maybe you too would benefit from a little time in the wilderness. Slow down. Reflect. Write. You’re not designed to be a human doer – it’s being, right.
Live hard. Love harder…
