So, I’m sitting on an airplane next to a dude who’s afraid of flying.
He’s a strapping, gun-carrying, proud American from Ohio, and we’re having an incredible time as he chugs Jack Daniels quicker than I can swallow my green juice. I ask him why he’s afraid.
“It’s a control thing,” he says.
“I know that one,” I say.
We all want it. Some kind of guarantee, a handshake from the universe that lets us know things will turn out the way we think they should. But that’s not the universe’s deal.
The deal is that we are made of movement.
If we want to live in accordance with the truth evolving inside our skin, we are required to break down old patterns so that they too can evolve.
Truth demands a quantum leap-level of trust, where our plans don’t mean shit because the possibilities made possible by that leap are beyond what our minds can see from where we sit. Until we jump.
Quit telling yourself you’ll do the thing when you’ve got a plan.
Everything is waiting for you on the other side of hesitation.
