Archives For greatness

Are you your name? Are you your body? Or your job? Your gender? The family you came from? The color of your skin?

Or, are you much, much, greater than all of those definitions? Are you actually an infinite being?

We live in a world where we keep trying to define us and everyone else. Well, here’s the thing – definition always creates limitation.

Definitions and labels confine and limit us. When we judge ourselves or others based on labels, we are choosing to separate; we are choosing finiteness.

It’s our definition of us, and the ones we buy from other people, that stop us. Because it’s our definitions of us and others that lead to judgment. And judgment is the biggest killer on the planet.

As I watched this potent and moving video, I asked myself some questions:

What if we no longer chose smallness over greatness?
What would our world look like without separation, without labels, without judgment?

As Prince Ea says in the video – “When there’s division, there will be conflict.” What if by ending the division and the separation, the conflicts that are occurring all over the world could end?

I ask you my friends, what else do you know is possible here, on this planet of ours? What would you like to choose? What choices could you make today to create a world you’d like to live in?

Awhile back, I did a google hangout on “The Potency of Being Undefined”. Imagine for a moment if you had no name, no race, no past and no definitions of who, what, when, where, how and why you were supposed to be? If you no longer had to look for a definition of yourself, or others, what possibilities would be available that you haven’t yet chosen?

You see, it’s our definition of us, that we we’re not willing to go beyond, that leads to the limited path that we can walk rather than an expansive path of infinite possibilities.

Which one would you like to choose my friends? What else do you know is possible?

Until next time,

Are you one of those people that is interested in LOTS of different things?  Maybe you’re like me and bright, shiny new things make you happy? 🙂

Have you ever jumped in the deep end of something new and found that you can swim quite well?  But then maybe later (often pretty quickly), you get bored. It’s not challenging anymore. It’s not fun.  You’re ready to move on, yet you make yourself wrong for not being able to commit, not sticking with something, and not finding your ‘purpose’ in life.

What if you didn’t have to make yourself wrong anymore? What if this ‘wrongness’ is actually a strongness?

In our culture, we’ve been told that you should feel like a failure if you don’t find your purpose – a jack of all trades and master of none.  This idea – that you have to find your destiny and your one true calling, and if you don’t figure it out, you have somehow failed or are terribly wrong…does that make you feel light or heavy?

What’s true always makes you feel lighter.  A lie always makes you feel heavier.

I have a question for you my friends – what if you are a master of all trades and a jack of none? What if you’re more brilliant and gifted than you’ve ever acknowledged? Does that make you feel lighter or heavier?

What if you didn’t have to choose just one thing? What if you didn’t have to limit your menu of choice at all?

What if instead, one of your greatest gifts, was the capacity to learn new things, to adapt, and to be able to choose anything and everything you would like to?

As I watched this amazing TED Talk about ‘multipotentialites’ (a great term created by Emilie Wapnick), I was reminded once again of the brilliance that each of us has by continuing to choose, seek, and explore more of what is possible.

Welcome to the world of infinite possibilities my friends!
