The game is constantly expanding. You must appreciate this and be gentle with yourself through it. You will not always know the next thing to say, the next thing to feel, the next thing to do.
You will seldom choose the perfectly right thing. FYI- This is near impossible. There’s always a left, always an up, always a down. What matters is that you choose. And then choose again and again and again.
Sometimes you complain about being stuck, about having to endure the same old, same old again and again. You are still sad about this or that. You are still mad about this or that and it happened last year or four years and five months ago.
You are not here to cling to old feelings as if they were your last dime. Old feelings are definitely never your last dime. As long as you are on this earth, you are a sensitive being. You are capable of feeling new feeling after new feeling after new feeling.
The small part of you wants to keep the big part of you under wraps like a mint Ferrari under a car tarp in the back of a old musty barn. Your small self will keep pooping on that tarp like a flock of pigeons who has just eaten a bunch of cracked corn with Ex Lax mixed in.
But through your small self may poop on the tarp, it can never take away that you are a Ferrari capable of beautiful movement, capable of feeling awe and inspiring awe.
Ferrari’s are of course built to move. Built to take off on courageous journeys.
The most dangerous place for a Ferrari is under the tarp because the wear and tear of not moving is exhausting. Things get brittle. Things get painful. Old stories play again and again like a rerun of Beverly Hillbillies on a staticky black and white TV.
Nothing against the Beverly Hillbillies once, but the hundredth time, is a good indication that it’s high time to fire the Ferrari up and go for a ride.
“Life is a highway” says a popular song by who knows who. Life is a highway and within you is the desire, the power and the energy to ride it (all night long).
Sometimes you need rest to heal what is causing you pain. More often you need movement. Fall in love with how you can move your thoughts. Fall in love with how you can move your emotions. Fall in love with how you can move your actions.
There’s no greater truth than that you are truly free. You are infinitely more powerful than the Ferrari. The Ferrari is just a metaphor. But you are love. You are energy. You are miracles. You are.
You’ve spent long enough fretting about what you are not. Today be exactly what you are.
