"Only when you stretch will you be able to liberate yourself from the identity that you carry about you."
It's early and I've been up for a long time. It's the first time in years that I have felt the calmness and power that manifests when I know what I want, and I am taking action to get it. Does it matter what the outcome is? If it does, the process and the action will erode and lose strength because they are and must be variables, and in a fixed system, there is only one correct path. If the outcome does not matter, but only the process and the work, then the system is open ended, flexible, complex, excited by stochastic process, and dripping with possibilities and the unknown! You can deviate, experiment, learn, advance, do the work you were meant to, and be free from the expectations and limits of one fixed outcome. Trust is essential, and is either there to begin with, or learned as one leaps.
Here's to less sleep, stretching my body and mind at any imaginable hour, and relighting all the candles in the temple!
