We’ve all come across the idea of imagining what it would be like to be told we only have six months to live.
We understand this as an approach to re-evaluating our priorities in life and making more conscious choices about how to spend our time.
But what if that was a reality instead of just an intellectual concept?
This is the situation now being faced by an extremely close and dearly loved member of my family who is the most thoughtful, caring and kind woman I have had the great good fortune to know for the last 30 years.
My conscious choice at this time is to honour her here for her grace and courage in the face of what is for most of us an unimaginably difficult situation, and to shower her with love and support for the path ahead.
The Rationale and the Message
I have also made the unusual choice of sharing what is a deeply personal situation with you for a reason.
It feels to me like there is a growing sense of urgency in the world for us all to wake up to the reality of who we are. It truly is time to set ourselves free from the story of our lives, step out of the drama, and seek the Truth within.
This is the process of becoming Conscious, the journey to self-realization which underlies everything to do with conscious and creative expression, including writing and authorship.
When we realize that we are not the conglomeration of conditioned patterns of thought and behavior we usually believe ourselves to be – what I call the everyday self – we make different choices.
As individuals, when we seize the moment and make conscious choices from the level of our deep self, we create a new reality for ourselves as well as for those who share our world.
So What Action Can We Take as Conscious Writers Today?
We can begin by letting go of the limiting beliefs we all have which hold us back from being all that we already are. In doing so, we clear the way for authentic truth to shine through all of the actions we take.
To that end, today’s article is a section I have just written for my book which is a Five Step Process for releasing beliefs which no longer serve us in relation to creativity. However, it can be applied to any and all areas of life where limitation is present. Read it here.
Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for sharing this conscious and creative journey with me. May you find the ultimate freedom which comes from being who you truly are as you express yourself consciously and creatively – on the page and in the world.
