As you know, Eckhart Tolle is one of my favorite mentors. In “Power of Now” he reminds me “not to pursure your goals with grim determination, driven by fear, anger, discontent, or the need to become someone.” Ouch! How many times have I embarked upon a new course of action charged with the emotions referenced above. So, truth be told, at the core of my motivation for change has been a feeling of not enough or of being wrong. Compensation isn’t a very stable foundation for growth and success. However, it’s a great formula for self-sabotage.
I wonder how my ‘house’ would turn out if I brought my wonderous Being into the foundation and surrendered the outcome–patiently listening for my next action. I wonder what this approach would unfold. I don’t know but I’ll keep you posted!
