“The world shrinks or expands according to one’s courage.”
I re-discovered this quote recently and it caught my eye. I do believe it to be true, in fact, I feel that I am living it right now. I left a life that was known, familiar and safe to go out on the open road in search of adventure and knowledge (knowledge of self acquired through exploration) and recently I find myself feeling afraid, lacking in the courage to continue expanding. I can speculate about the changing circumstances or the environment here in Utah, but it always comes back to self, right? What is the block, the disharmony that I am experiencing within?… Well, yesterday I hit a wall within myself where I couldn’t deny or lie to my heart any longer. I WANT MORE! We always want more, yes, of course. But the more I want is MORE OF MYSELF: to fully bring myself and my heart, talents and gifts into the world around me and when I am not doing that (such as now) I feel fear that I won’t, can’t or don’t know how to. So, let me call bullshit on myself once and for all. That is not true! I can do and be anything!! The Earth needs each and every one of us to live our fullest selves. And I for one, think it’s about time we all got down to the business of being our most wild, true, beautiful and authentic selves…

“In silence and in waiting, something goes on growing, your authentic being.”
I took this photo in Singapore, it just seemed to say it so well.
How awesome is this?!
