|I contemplate the Tao Te Ching, verse by verse, with Dr. Dyer's help.|
I think it is important for us to find our voice. Our style of speaking and writing is different from that of others. We must be true to ourselves. We've got to do things from the heart. We must tap into the Source (Tao-God) of our creativity.
Our true natures call out to us. We can't quiet them down. They are aching to come out and feel the air. We must give in to our deepest wants and desires.
I'm not talking about sinning. I'm talking about what drives your passion for living. I'm talking about what drives you to wake up in the morning. I'm talking about something that would be work but wouldn't feel like it was work. Can you imagine what that would be?
What is limiting you? Is it religion? Is it financial obligations? Is it the legalities of your situation?
I'm not asking you to turn on your religious beliefs. I'm not even asking you to break the law. I'm just asking you to cast aside the limitations of doubt and fear. In order to be true to yourself, you have to keep to your integrity--your deep beliefs of fairness and love. Living the life you want does not mean going against your beliefs.
That's why I'm writing this all out. I'm living out my dream. To write has been a burning passion in my life. It has been a blessing when I had no one to talk to. It's been a life saver for me.
How about your, my readers? What is your passion? Are you living your passion? I challenge you to think about it seriously.
