The World Is Waiting For You***

 

The time has come to do what your soul yearns to do.

 

If you continue to delay, to make excuses for not singing that song, painting that painting, planting that garden,volunteering with those dying patients …in short, for not sharing what you wish to share from the very deepest part of your being…then you will end up making yourself miserable without even knowing why.

 

The ruts can grow very deep. No amount of will power may be able to get you out of them. They can get filled in with all kinds of dis-eases.  The mind always has a great sounding excuse; from the classic, “they’ll think I’m nuts”, to the “I have no talent and who would want to hear what I have to say anyway,”  to the highly seductive “I can’t afford it”,  and the eternal, “everything’s got to be perfect before I try”.

 

Then of course, we can rant and rave about all those nasty people who are trying to dominate us (not that such people don’t exist…they have always existed);  but this becomes the all encompassing hole into which we shovel our creative energies.  It is a highly effective technique of the fear-based ego to keep us from facing our fears and sharing our soul in this world.

 

I was once told by some wise amorphous friends that I am constantly thinking that the world has to get its act together before it is safe for me to express my soul within it … when actually it is the world which is waiting for me. 

 

The world is waiting for you.  It needs millions of awakening beings, each doing what excites and ignites them.  So sing your song, dance your dance, paint your masterpiece, make your garden, become the healer you were afraid to become.

 

The world is waiting for you.  And in the process you may just find your sadness is lifted and your body made whole.
