It is not everyday that you meet someone that has an impact on the way you look at life.
It was May 6th 2016 the day I met my teacher. I didn’t know this at the time but I was destined to become aware of synchronicity at a deeper level.
It was the first day of the Hay House World Summit. It was staring with a movie called “The Shift” with Dr. Wayne Dyer. I had been seeing Dr. Wayne Dyer quite frequently online and mentioned in books and audiobooks but the time wasn’t right. I wasn’t ready.
I put my body through its paces like a war horse; I keep it lean, sturdy, prepared. I harden it and I pity it. I have no other steed.
I keep my brain wide awake, lucid, unmerciful. I unleash it to battle relentlessly so that, all light, it may devour the darkness of the flesh. I have no other workshop where I may transform darkness into light.
I keep my heart flaming, courageous, restless. I feel in my heart all commotions and all contradictions, the joys and sorrows of life. But I struggle to subdue them to a rhythm superior to that of the mind, harsher than that of my heart - to the ascending rhythm of the Universe.
As years go by and we grow older each year and wiser as we would like to think, there are certain statements that define our being. These are shaped by our values, beliefs and experiences.
If you allow yourself the time to ask yourself such questions, you would be in a position to come up with your creed or manifesto. You don't have to reinvent the wheel, though. You can start with a creed or manifesto that others put together. In time, you can adjust it, keep the parts that resonate with you and remove the ones that don't.
One of the most influential, innovative and disruptive people of our time has undoubtedly been Steve Jobs.
As commented by Walter Isaacson in Time Magazine,
“[Steve Jobs] revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing. You might add a seventh: retailing, which Jobs did not quite revolutionize but did reimagine. Along the way, he produced not only transforming products but also, on his second try, a lasting company, endowed with his DNA, that is filled with creative designers and daredevil engineers who will carry forward his visions.”
Some days make me feel like Bill Murray. All you have to do, is to roll with it and then you get sucked in and you wake up to the same day all over again.
I believe Groundhog Days have their purpose. It is the tipping point that help you realise that you need to change. Use this time to review your lifeplan and figure out what is your path and how to get out of it.
