“A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke”
– Vincent van Gogh
I’ve used this heading before, but it still ails me that so few people are willing to let go of their self-limiting beliefs and let their passion flow.
Perhaps it is that they’ve lost all sense of where they are, who they are or their place in the Universe, but I sincerely hope not, for if they have then they’ve avoided all possibility of creating art, and connecting on a higher level.
It may have something to do with the industrial mindset which hems them in thinking that their place in the world is made possible by a career, certainty and the possibility of reconnecting with their self at retirement.
If that’s your thing, fine, but is it more precious than letting your true self shine though?
Any break with the past is hard but not impossible. It all comes down to our habits. Change one small thing, and keep doing that every single day and, pretty soon, you’ll see mammoth changes in your life.
I don’t know about you, but I would prefer to be remembered for the times I failed than not having tried at all.
Over to you.
