The Quest

Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Your perception is most accurate when it’s inside out. You’ve crossed the threshold from the ordinary world into the special world. It is here the rules of the ego and polite society, no longer apply. In the ordinary world, it was acceptable to run from the things that scared you. In the special world, you walk toward those things with open arms. In the ordinary world, it was acceptable to associate falling with failing. In the special world, it is an invitation to explore your depth. In the ordinary world, it was customary to pretend you don’t have a shadow. In the special world, your shadow is where your greatest gifts arise. In the ordinary world, when something was bizarre you disregarded it as irrelevant. In the special world, strangeness is an indicator of value and importance. In the ordinary world, it was acceptable to blame other people for your difficulties. In the special world, you take full responsibility for your experience.

Mantra ::
I become more lucid when I choose to see the world from an inside-out perspective.
