Q: So, you’re saying to stop trying to game the system. Play it straight up. Here and now. That will make for a pretty big change after a lifetime of trying to see up ahead, around corners.
And where has that gotten you?
Q: That’s what fear and worry do though. When you feel that you have to watch out for everyone else and yourself–that’s a lot of responsibility. That’s a lot of moving parts. That’s a lot of things that can go wrong.
And there’s the crux of the matter–things that can go wrong. Focusing on what can go wrong is paralyzing.
Q: Focusing on what can go right changes the entire energy around it.
How about removing pressure entirely by focusing on just taking the next step from the here and now. No leapfrogging. No taking out your super-duper spyglass to see around corners. No checking for a “good” time. No fearful thinking. No wishful thinking. Just take the next step. Start living from within out, instead of without in.
Q: Hit me with a 2×4, why don’t you—living “Without” in.
Time to shake it all loose. There is no better time, there is no better place. There is only here and now–so get hopping.
