What if we get quiet? Really, really quiet and listen to the whispers of our soul. The ones that we pretend not to notice or don’t even know they exist.
What if we get still? So still that we feel the message within our heartbeat. The rhythm of our desire.
What if we get honest? An honesty that liberates us from that which no longer works. The freedom of truth.
What if we are vulnerable? A vulnerability that will undoubtedly break us open. The exposure of tenderness.
We risk knowing what will offer deep nourishment.
We risk knowing our recipe for joy.
We risk conscious evolution.
We risk filling our capacity for love.
We risk hope.
But when we don’t look, it is to protect ourselves from what we might not be able to have.
In risking nothing, we risk it all.
When we don’t look our deepest desires in the eyes, we don’t have to know them intimately.
We don’t have to take responsibility for, as we say in coaching, what is dying to be born.
We are free of the risk of a broken heart.
We are liberated from shattered dreams.
But that’s not why we’re here.
