Released! Now what?

I woke up this past Saturday feeling incredibly excited. In fact, the excitement (and a bit of anxiety) had been building in me over a few days... maybe a week.

But Saturday I felt EXCITED. Like bouncing off the walls with an eager sense of something coming.

Then it came.

And now I'm grappling with the aftermath as I begin to adapt to a very different inner landscape.

So What Happened?

I've got to give you some history and context so it all makes sense when I get to the punchline.

What Makes You Thrive in Life?

Many things have been rearranging themselves within me, but as that shuffling goes on, I am down to one of the bare bones things that I don't quite yet know how to deal with...

I've never liked/loved Life. It's always been a struggle for me to appreciate it. This world is full of things I don't understand that seem so -damn- hard. 

Sure, I have spiritual reasons for being here. Fine. But I don't have personal, human reasons for loving this life. 

Here's the thing... I don't want to not live. It's not even that I can't find things to enjoy in this life.

It's more that I cannot find my own compelling reasons for really engaging with Life in a way that thrills me, that's joyful. Some reason or viewpoint that causes me to feel pulled forward into life in a way that isn't just about surviving it but about truly thriving in it. Something that would finally make me love it

You're Here On Purpose. (And you can't screw it up.)

You. Me. Everyone and everything... here on purpose. 

That's what I've felt and believed ever since I can remember.

I hear people talk about how you can be "off" purpose or that somehow you can do your life wrong.

And every time I hear it, I know it's not true.

I don't know how I know it. But I know it.

And it's not that I never spin out with worry about whether I'm doing my life "right"... the mind generates worry, and I can be a worrier.

It's that I always come back to that deep touchstone inside that just KNOWS I cannot mess this up, even if my mind likes to spin scary stories.
