My three times away in seminars at the Haven Institute over these last six months have gifted me with many insights into the deeper understanding and nature of who I am as a person, what holds me back AND what inspires me to become anew. When I found the following quotation this morning, I knew I wanted to share it with you because it really speaks to what I feel has become a vital place in my continued personal growth... have a read...
"The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become."
Quotation by Charles Du Bos (1882-1939) French literary critic
I interpret this to mean that unless I am willing to both examine AND release those non-working aspects of myself, I will be unable to truly move ahead in a greater potential within. Keep actively evaluating and checking into me! Listen deeply and act to make changes when ready. Change is good... and through change, I just keep expanding in my levels of life / self enrichment and fulfilment.
My focus has now become having a sense of curiosity about;
- Who I am (and I'm never the same person I was yesterday)?
- What's working and what's not working for me in my life now?
- What would I like to focus my creative attention on today?
I'm excited! For the first time in a very long while, I feel as though I am wearing new glasses on which to see myself with... honesty glasses with a daring willingness to take a realistic assessment of all that has and is true for me in this moment.
Curiosity, instead of reaction and fear-based thinking is now the primary place I am approaching my life from... and I like this vantage point! What an incredible shift. Suddenly, I'm asking the following questions of myself AND being open to hearing new answers...
Who can I make myself into now?
What can I let go of that would open me to greater freedom and expression?
What would I like to create of myself and life next?
To me, these are great new questions for a new way of being. Have you asked yourself any of these questions in the last while? You might find yourself excited, as I am with a new and curious inquiry into your Self.
