Follow Your Bliss… BUT HOW?!
You know what makes you happy but you keep on being dragged away by duties and commitments.
You might be saying ‘that’s life’, but deep down inside you know it’s absolutely not the full truth.
You know what thrills you but you feel it’s out of your league, or that you’re miles away from achieving it.
How the hell can you garner the confidence to stick with the things that make you feel you excited?
You’ve heard this abstruse saying ‘follow your bliss’ before.
It rings true.
You know in your guts it’s true.
But, how to beget this bliss
you’re not entirely sure.
Yet you try.
to just be yourself
because this is your true bliss,
but it turned out
that others didn’t really approve of it
and it was so damn hard to keep pretending
that you’re enjoying life
when you’re doing what you love, but you’re poor.
What you want has brought you
some lovely dreams,
an excitement shot with worry,
spiced with shame.
You’re compelled by it, but also feel afraid.
This whole thing begins to feel
confusing and too much.
You’re not sure anymore
but you give it another try.
This time, it’s a pile of self-help
books by your bed. Miracles,
manifesting, chakra clearing,
energy leak plumbing, speaking with
angels…. And it still doesn’t happen.
What you want stays on your vision board
like a reminder of a failure
or the very delusion the Buddhists
have warned you against.
Ok. Back to the beginning.
Follow your bliss,
just because you’re so tired
of endless efforts
to be good, to be enough, to feel enough,
you bow your head down
and start all over again
in the simplest manner you can,
anything you want
is at a breath's
It seems like following our bliss should be the most intuitive and natural thing to do.
It is, but, we have layers of undoing to be able to reach again that natural flow.
In the upcoming Life Alignment and meditation workshop I’ll lead you through these two simple, applicable, spiritually-grounded steps to help you find again that intuitive flow of your bliss:
1. Bringing yourself back to the same track you were on, but dismissed as not good/extraordinary/novel enough
2. Learn to embrace your neediness and truly see it, not as a weakness, but as a soul song
