I once knew a woman in Italy. This woman had everything you can imagine in the material world. She had a yacht, a castle and homes all over the world with many people to serve her. A friend asked me to help her.
I once knew a woman in Italy. This woman had everything you can imagine in the material world. She had a yacht, a castle and homes all over the world with many people to serve her. A friend asked me to help her. Now, to some people, her life is a fairytale. However, for her it was empty and filled with sadness. When I met with her, she was dressed in a silk robe with a pearl necklace and a diamond so big you could purchase a sports car. The look on her face was one of the souls who was being suffocated by life and the sadness in her eyes broke my heart. I saw a soul who had it all, everything that people aspire to have and work so hard to achieve.
In a penthouse hotel room overlooking the aqua blue sea and what looks like pure Heaven. Before me sat a soft, fair skin woman around 5’10”, nice fit body seen by the curves in her robe that was fastened tight around her waist. As I entered to spend the day with a new friend, I couldn’t help letting my mind run over why would this woman be so unhappy with all she has accumulated in life. Then it hit me: she was not living free. Not living free is not living at all. Do you think this woman could do a cartwheel just because she felt like doing it? I would say not. What about getting a huge canvas and painting with her body naked? Not in a million years. She wouldn’t be caught dead without her pearls and maintaining her composure in public, always. She bases her day on what she feels a woman of her stature should do. Charity and dinners and more charity and dinners, all the while writing blue powered checks to every ‘save-something’ fund.
Do you think maybe she would do something more in life? All the money she has, you would think she wouldn’t buy more things and gut out her houses and start all over after the 4th time doing so. She has lost touch with her true self and the true joys of living. What kind of life is that? She’s not in a beautiful hotel overlooking the sea in all directions… she’s in a prison of her own making. The emotions are her prison, and her mind is the warden.
It’s a sad tale to tell, however, when you’re not being true to you and honoring freedom as the key to happiness. Then you are not afraid of the world, you are scared of yourself. Who wants to be fearful of yourself by judging, comparing, and coming down hard on yourself instead of teaching you freedom as a choice? A choice that once taken gives you an amazing sense of self and a fill of spirit and passion, which can build nations and create new stories that inspire all that is good about life. It starts with you and your behavior towards living.
How much of the simple things do you really embrace? If not a whole lot, then start now. Know you are manifesting greatness. Know the world is waiting on your expression to complete the colors of life. Without it you would perish. You would be like a robot following the rules. You are a passionate soul, here to discover you. That is it. We are here to help you.
So, will you accept the challenge and the change NOW? So you can drink the water that is everywhere.
