IT'S GO TIME
Saying you want it.
Dreaming about it.
Planning for it.
They are all somewhat beneficial pieces of the puzzle. Yet they are just that. Pieces.
Individually they render themselves useless.
Together they are just as useless UNTIL....
You pair them with forward action.
Suddenly you've created the WHOLE.
Until you are going to decide to take the next action and then the next action and then the next action, until that very thing is a part of your reality it will forever be a thought, a dream, a wish, a hope.
It will remain what others have and you wish you had.
You don't plan for and commit to it today and then promptly go back to doing what you would have been doing tomorrow if you had not decided to commit to it today!
A real life experience of exactly that....
It's taken 28 years for my man to come to the understanding that this stuff I talk about (ok maybe preach about) is not theory, is not fluffy, it not wishful thinking, is not woo woo, is not spirituality (well it is but not the way most perceive), is not hard, is not for a select few.
What it is about is your - his - my, ability to actually be integral across all areas of life in a way that allows us to be honest around:
What we truly want vs what we think we want
What has to be done in order to live that
If indeed we are willing to do those things...
In which case if we are not...it's simple.
You don't TRULY want it.
There is literally one question that is needed to move you from where you are into where you TRULY desire to be and in fact, deep down know you can and should be.
The answers that come from that question is exactly where "let it be easy" was born.
You sit down and you plan, you strategize, you think about all the available options, you feel good.
You get back to doing what needed to be done in your day and next thing you know your living yesterday all over again.
You suddenly realize you haven't given thought to that thing that needs to be taken care of 6 months down the road so you start planning for that.
So what's the problem here?
That thing you TRULY want, the one you committed to, the one that once it is your reality means that, that thing 6 months down the road (that you forgot to give thought to) doesn't even exist because it is no longer a part of your life or concerns.
You are spending your time and energy getting ready and preparing for EXACTLY THAT.
So which one are you ACTUALLY committed to?
What you truly want or what has been?
Back to my man.
Of course I asked that one question. "So if indeed we already were living that, what would we be doing?"
Naturally him being him... he went to what he would NOT be doing, which is fine as it's one in the same in this case.
"I would not be heating with wood" was his response.
That response alone was enough for him to fully embody 28 years of my "nagging" and the "let it" be easy mantra.
You could feel him relax into to the freedom of not cutting 22 cords of wood a year. The freedom of time. The excitement of the other things we would be doing instead. The realness of it had set in and he GOT IT.
Now the interesting thing is that heating with wood is what he noticed first. There will be no heat source needed inside of our plans so wood heat is a mute point.
But this next part is incredible.
As we walked through the forest in knee deep snow last week, as he had to carry the dog because he couldn't walk any further he says to me.
"I have to start thinking about what area I want to cut from this year"
"Oh, tell me more," I said. "What are you thinking?"
He went on to discuss different parts of the property. I listened and when he was done I simply said, "gosh it sounds like a lot of time tied up in going back and forth?"
He was puzzled. "Are you going to want to travel back and forth to cut wood for someone else to burn?"
His eyes got wider, his smirk began to grow.
"Why are we talking about cutting wood when you already decided that was the thing that was absolutely not needed inside of what it is we ARE doing?"
"You have to plan forward and don't step back. Let it be easy," I reminded him.
"If you want to constantly plan around and act on what was required of you yesterday or last season or last year, you can count on being in that same spot tomorrow and the next day. It's why we have been talking about this "idea" for 14 years and it has never become our reality"
"You stepped forward now stop stepping back.
You have one direction to go and that is FORWARD"
The need to think about wood - was banished!
So the question becomes...
What do you truly want vs what you think you want?
What has to be done in order for YOU to live that?
Are you indeed willing to do THAT?
If it's not a yes, begin again and find a truer true.
Stop stepping back.
You see, this work - this is THE WORK. It is YOUR WORK. The only work in life that matters.
It's the work of integrity
It's the work of a life fully lived.
It's the work of willingness to see when you are not in alignment.
It's the work of mindfulness.
It's the work of awareness.
It's the work of commitment, to yourself
It's the work of expansion in all ares of life.
It's the work of walk the walk don't just talk the talk.
It's the work of stop dreaming it and start living it.
It's the work of inspiring others to do the same, to live their best life by you stepping into yours fully.
This thing you want. The success you desire. The experience and the feelings you long to live inside of. They all come from doing the inner work. You could call it mindset work but frankly it is SO, SO, SO much deeper and more than just mindset.
They are a result of the transformational work and ironically the duality in that is that we are not transforming anything.
We are getting you BACK to who indeed you KNOW deep down you have always been and are launching you into the life that you KNOW is waiting for you.
Life is not meant to be hard. Let it be easy!
