‘You Can Fail At What You Don’t Want, So You Might As Well Take A Chance On Doing What You Love’

My soul is not contained within the limits of my body;

my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.

I have often said that I wish people could realize all their dreams and wealth and fame

so that they can see that it’s not where you’re going to find your sense of completion.

I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.

Because everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart,

and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart.

We’re not the avatars we create,

we’re not the pictures on the film stock;

we’re the light that shines through.

All else is just smoke and mirrors; distracting but not truly compelling.

Our eyes are not viewers; they are also projectors

that are running a second story over the picture that we see in front of us all the time.

Fear is writing that script.

Now fear is going to be a player in your life,

but you get to decide how much.

You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts,

worrying about the pathway to the future…

but all there will ever be is what’s happening here,

in the decisions we make in this moment,

which are based in either love or fear.

So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality,

what we  really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect

so we never dare to ask the universe for it.

I’m saying that you can ask the universe for it.

Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.

As far as I can tell it’s just about letting the universe know what you want

and working towards it while letting go of how it comes to pass.

Why not take a chance on faith?

Not religion, but faith.

Not hope, but faith.

I don’t believe in hope, hope is a beggar.

Hope walks through the fire and faith leaps over it.

You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world,

and after you walk through those doors today

you will only ever have two choices:

Love or Fear.

Choose love.

And don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.
