Decide: #9 Decide to Listen

It’s easy to think, to plan, to contemplate and just…do nothing. Often there exists a gap between the thinking and planning, to the actual action of doing and creating. The gap is where we make choices, we decide. And often, we spend ages in that space just cruising along.

So, decide.

Decide: #9 Decide to Listen
Interestingly, we often mix up the terms ‘listen’ & ‘hear’. Though the recognition of the experience between the two is quite distinct.
If only hearing happens, then there is confusion & uncertainty that results from no real understanding.
If listening actually happens, connection is present.
How do you know connection is present? If you listen, you will find out soon enough.

Decide: #8 Decide to Release
This is for all the dreams I let die without being noticed or expressed. The weight of carrying them is starting to drag me down, while the temptation to hold on now looks like obligation. It’s as if holding on meant giving them witness.
Today, I let those dreams I let die go peacefully. Fully release, fully forgive. So that when I choose to create new ones out of the ashes of old ones, they are done in the spirit of soaring, lighter from the weight released.

Decide: #7 Decide to Dance

*This post was a few days late since I just came back from a trip to Phuket, from an event called the Awesomeness Fest. More on that in my later posts. Recovering from such an empowering, mind-stretching event took a while. And here, the series continue.*

Decide: #7 Decide to Dance
It’s not the steps, which style or type of dance. It’s not the right type of music. It’s not how someone looks at you when you dance.
All this time, it’s about feeling the music and moving your body to how you feel with it. It is free, primal and joyful.
Dance, simply dance.

Decide: #6 Decide to Leap
If you find yourself peering over the edge, waiting for someone to decide if you should walk away or fly, my guess if you’ve been waiting for a long time.
The leap of faith is often taken in one single step, though it makes the difference between familiar ground and the boundless sky.
And if you are not finding yourself at the edge having to make the decision to leap, chances are you’ve been playing on safe ground, wondering where all the sky is.
