Can we be comfortable without the hunger for more?
Can we free ourselves from the constant demands for additional bounty?
For those of us seeking a cosmic coloration in consciousness, this is an inner battle that will continue to wage on. And it will most certainly be one worth fighting.
And so, whether we are starting a new business or changing careers or simply making a life transition, let us measure twice and cut once.
To do so, our initial steps will be intention and attention.
We will begin by announcing to ourselves that everything necessary for a having a fulfilling life is already part of us. We may not understand where to find it, or how to unearth it, or what it even is, but we will trust that it is available to us at no additional cost.
This trusting intention counts for a lot, and it allows all our subsequent actions to flow more smoothly.
Now, the other piece is noticing how often we look for more. Not beating ourselves up for being greedy, and not judging ourselves for trying to improve on the present moment, but simply noticing and naming the habit of extraneous desire.
Keeping a jealous eye over yourself, as my favorite song lyric goes. If we can start there, from a place of trusting and noticing, then we won’t have to pay any attention to the tasty golden carrot dangling just the right distance to keep us on the hamster wheel.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
When will you have done enough to be happy with who you are?
