"...to realise your true nature, you must wait for the right moment and the right conditions. When the time comes, you are awakened as if from a dream. You understand that what you have found is your own and doesn't come from anywhere outside..."
- Buddist Sutra
Yesterday I woke up.
Y'see, I've been napping. It's as if I curled up on my day bed, with my favourite pillow and duvet, and whilst aware of what was going on around me, and what I needed to do in order to ignite my spark, do crazy-beautiful work o' wonder, I stayed firmly curled up in my ball o' comfort and safety.
Now, there's a lot to be said for feeling safe and secure. My most favourite place in the entire world is when I'm wrapped in the big strong arms of my viking beau, but sadly, as much as I'd like to, there are all sorts o' inconvenient practicalities to staying there indefinitely. Boo. The same goes for this life lark, you'll be able to find a gazillion reasons to play it safe, to maintain the status quo, to except that, well, this is basically as good as it's going to get. The thing is, If you look a li'l harder, a li'l deeper, you'll also find a gazillion reasons why playing it safe just isn't an option either. Especially if, like me, you plan on creating revolutions. Body revolutions, life revolutions, world revolutions.
'Cept creating revolutions takes a whole lot' o' y'know, chutzpah and you don't get that kind o' magickal juju while taking a nap.
Nope, the really, really good shit happens when you're fully awake, when you turn your radio dial to the 'I'm so freakin' ready to receive' station, and your SASS switch has been flicked to 'go girl, you can do ANYTHING!'
I've been aware of what I needed to do, y'know, the actual work - the self-questioning, the story re-writing, the letting go - because unless I fully connect with myself, how am I able to connect with others, the world, the universe?
But yesterday I woke up.
I spent the day with my beautiful friend and transformation guru, Brett Moran and his gorgeous housemate Quantum Alice, who between them, gave me a gentle nudge, wiped the sleep from my eyes and proved that I'm SO freakin' ready.
As of today, the Lisa revolution starts here. I'm doing 'the work', and I'm going to keep doing the work indefinitely because that's what happens when you're fully awake, you do 'the work', because when you do, you create an over-flowing abundance amount o' awesomeness for yourself and most importantly, for the world around you, then I'm going to start a million, gazillion revolutions. Some big, some small, but whatever their size and importance, they're all going to be freakin' epic. Just so you know.
