Reflection about being alive – from Seth Godin’s “The Icarus Deception”, to the Three Principles, Enlightenment and making my art.
I have started writing about it in the previous post, so I am curious if I can take my ideas even further this time around, or what has changed in the couple of days since that.
A big part of the difference I want to make, as I mentioned, is introducing as many people to the inside-out understanding of human experience. Because I believe it will make world a better place.
However, as I mentioned in the opening of this series, I am also attracted to music and photography. Yes, these media can be of use for fulfilling the purpose written above. But for me, they have value on their own as well.
So, what do I do?
I am helping people to have more ease, confidence and joy in life. I am creating a safe place for them to explore their understanding of their lives, and I share some truths about how the life works and how their experience of life is created through the power of thought. I am guiding people towards recognition of their innate wisdom, and showing the direction towards their inner peace and happiness, their innate resilience and the incredible place within them of higher clarity and higher performance.
When thinking about pride, I remember that the last time I wrote that I was proud of the life I was creating for myself in the moment. To be honest, this question again seems less relevant to my life now. I begin to realize that during this round each step of the blogging challenge actually challenges me not to “bash” the prompts from the understanding I now have about life. From the other side, that is the main purpose for me to join (besides re-vitalizing my blog again): see what has changed, how I have evolved over the last 9 months (hey, that’s about the time it takes for one cell to become a baby! :) )
The second prompt of the Live Your Legend Blogging Challenge is, as the previous time, the question “What really makes you angry about the world?”
I find it quite ironic that the email with this prompt originally landed in my inbox on November 13th. A couple of hours later, Paris was attacked. Explosions and shooting at several locations took lives of about 130 people, many more were injured and hospitalized. For the next week, Paris and terrorism became the main theme in the media, as well as a topic of private conversations in the western world. Pain, fear, anger and hatred were the experience of many.
Yesterday I described a certain bridge in my life from the initial seed for the idea of having a website to the present moment. I hadn’t been writing through the summer and most of the fall — I was concerning myself too much with the struggle and too little with creativity.
Who am I now? — I would like to ask myself today as a way of easing into a new wave of writing, once again triggered and inspired by the Live Your Legend Blogging Challenge (and also as a way of paying my tribute to Scott Dinsmore, the LYL founder, who always believed in blogging as one of the most powerful self-discovery tools available).
