This journey begins with every emotion you can feel or sense, every miserable thought you can think.
All enraptured by FEAR.
I found myself sitting at my desk, just an ordinary day of work from home. Zoom calls filled the day and emergency fix this, I got a problem here, my delivery shipment is delayed, my new product is launching and I need this ASAP. Yes, my load to bear every day getting up a bit earlier and finding myself working even later into the evening.
It was during these hours of the week; I was trying to find something of value for myself. You know the accomplishments we strive for the bonus that might come, the kudos from my team. This kept me invested. On a lunch break I started surfing YouTube just to sooth my heart and my head. I had started meditation and found it to be very relaxing, even learning to do this in short moments to clear my head and it was working beautifully. So, on the YouTube I found my favorite meditation and listened in. During this fifteen-minute time, I longed to be free, I began to dream, to find a different life. In drifting along with these thoughts, I began to hear my own heart. I mean really hear. This is what I heard, “Do you want to live the best part of your life like this?” Solving other problems, correcting mistakes so that others enjoy their life and you deny your own?

Too many years, I am on a journey to discover why I am I here, what do I really love, where do I really want to invest my time and my talents. Certainly not to prostitute myself out anymore for a paycheck. (Yes, that’s a crude description of truth there). Sometimes pain, restlessness and even anger can drive us to look deep inside and all of this was driving me to a greater destiny. I was heartsick, and my soul was sore from all the care I had spent for other people and things.
This led me to a retreat, with those who did not know me, nor I about them. A real step out of my comfort zone. I realized that in one week and three days my life would forever change, and that change was a huge leap off the cliff of old paths, paradigms, belief systems and thought patterns.
What did I do? I made an escape plan….(read more)
