We are stars wrapped in skin. The light you are seeking has always been within. ~Rumi
Does success require a toll in your life? Have you given up a lot of what makes you happy to fit in, or for security?
A lot of people have, because it was the old way. An example might be a young couple in the early or mid 1900’s who gave up their dreams to work long hours in a business or factory, and to raise their children for a better life than they could have. There are many virtues in that decision, including a strong worth ethic and a desire to contribute to the greater good. It was the best choice at the time — but they had less access and fewer options than you do.
A new world calls for a new way.
The old strategy of conformity and sacrifice isn’t working anymore. It does not provide prosperity, happiness, and security. There are too many powerful people, groups and corporations who will take advantage of the good will of intelligent, creative, and hard working people.
Some of our best, most talented people see themselves as locked into unhappy circumstances, or disconnected from life and from what they really can do.
Our compliance to a broken system only hurts us.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not into fighting the old, but in building the new. ~Socrates
The way out is a paradigm shift. It’s not up to our leaders, or our celebrities, or our family to do it. It is up to each one of us, individually.
On a personal level, this means learning self-acceptance and self-love. It means awakening empathy, or bringing empathy into balance. It means an ongoing journey into Love. It means getting comfortable with authentic emotion, and mental and emotional clearing. It means a stronger and stronger intuition.
My purpose with Love in the New World is to create a community with tools to uncover authenticity, awaken creativity, and to hold space for astonishing transformation and healing.
Being true to yourself is not normal, but will be.
Identity cannot be fabricated or found, but emerges from within when one has the courage to let go. -Doug Cooper
