The shooting in Orlando is why I do what I do. Because we are a fragmented whole. Because hate is not an answer. Because hating the perpetrator is also not an answer. And because I think the time is now for business to be an amplifier for good. So, now what? How, exactly, do we do this when events like what happened in Orlando can happen so quickly? Here's what not to do...
Don't point fingers. Call it what you will - a hate crime, a targeted assault, a heinous act - people died for being...human. People are human, first, above all else. This isn't a gay thing this is a human thing. And we kill what we deem different from ourselves. We don't all pull a trigger but we reject, blame, judge, criticize and fear anyone who defines their humanity different than our own. LOVE. Just love.
Don't blame the other. All hate is born from the same place - difference. Be angry, sad, confused, flustered, frustrated that difference causes such scary acts in people. But I request this - LOVE the part of you that is angry, sad, confused, flustered and frustrated and you'll see that you are the other and the other is you. When we blur the line of separation we heal. When we stand for the separation we perpetuate the very thing that causes such violence in the first place.
Love is love. Hate is hate. There's no gray area here. Practice LOVE. Not just with others but with yourself.
Be the thing you wish you saw more of in the world. Love your enemy and they are no longer your enemy. Love what scares you and the fear disappears.
This is where my light workers come in. I want you to hear me out. Really, hear me out. What if your work, your business, your calling were an amplifier of good and of closing the gap in our separateness? What is possible then?
We live in duality where hate exists because love exists and vice versa. Their hate isn't the problem. Only ours is. Love the anger this event conjured up and you heal anger in the world.
"Your purpose is the excuse through which you get to love people." -Panache Desai
You can't lead our world toward harmony if you're still stuck in your head afraid of your gifts. Now is the time to shine as brightly as you were designed to shine! And I am pretty sure it's going to take a lot of us.
Hate is loud. I get it. It screams because its methods are gruesome and cruel. But love...love is the only thing that can bridge any gap and heal any wound. So LOVE through your purpose. This is the spirituality of your gifts and your business. This is the reason you are here.
I want to share something I wrote for my Awaken Your Practice workbook. Sprinkled throughout the workbook are notes from your higher self. And today you need to hear this.I need to hear this.
I do not give you ideas you can’t realize. I give them to you because you’re the only onewho can realize them in the exact way they’re meant to be realized. There is no great question I haven’t already pondered. No “how” I haven’t already figured out. And no fear I don’t see coming.
So what, then, are you waiting for?
That BIG idea you are sitting on is not doing any good inside your head. It wasn’t granted to you to be pondered. It was granted to you to be BUILT, CREATED, and REALIZED. Why you ask?
Does it matter? I will give you a tiny answer because your “why” is a tiny question. Because. No, really. Just because. Want more? Okay:
Because it’s fun. It feels good. It’s the pure definition of creativity. Creation. To create. To actualize some essence of an idea to something you can hold in your hands. To somethingyou can experience with emotion like joy, gratitude, and reverence. Because, as your higher self, I selfishly want to feel these things too through you.
So go now and create. Put it on paper. Sculpt it. Offer it. Build it. Make it messy. Don’t get it right at first. I assure you, you can’t get it right at first or you’d miss out on things like growth, desire, and the sheer thrill when you actually get it right.
And if you get scared remember this — fear and joy are two sides of the same coin. Just flip it over.
Here's my BIG request:
I want to help you step in. I mean really step in. Before you can be a beacon of light and before your work can be shared with the masses you have to do one final, bold step.....Sell.
Yup. You have to sell, invite, and beckon people to be so moved they want to exchange this energy called money for your work. Do you know what good is possible if spiritual teachers were wealthy? Just sayin...
I've teamed up with Michael Knouse and we're hosting a Benefit Coaching Call next week on the Soul of Selling to do TWO powerful things.
1. Help support and give to the families of the victims of the Pulse shooting, who are in such deep mourning right now, put some of the pieces back together.
2. Help you own your craft as an amplifier of good by being so unapologetic about its radical goodness you can't help but invite people in!
The call is $25, 90-minutes, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Pulse Shooting Victim's Fund and Equality Florida. Details below. (Also, if we raise $500 I will match it.)
