STOP Planning Your Life to the "T"

STOP Planning Your Life to the "T"
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

I truly believe that too many of us are looking for a destination rather than direction. We manage and plan our life down to the minute. We set goals daily, monthly and yearly and leave no spontaneity, adventure or fun to the 'not knowing'. Unconsciously our destination is planned by the past; the experiences and knowledge of the past. We just do a bit of repainting and renovating.

When we live for a destination, planning our life to the 'T', what room is left to feel vibrant? What room is left to feel the pulsation of this moment that is created now? What room is left to feel the totality in the dance of life? The passion, the exhilaration, the take my breath-away sensuality of being alive!

There is beauty and freshness in the unborn, the uncertainty, in the not knowing. Direction belongs to being. It is subtle, delicate and fragile. And to know this is only to feel it.

"To move in the world of direction one needs tremendous trust, because one is moving in insecurity, one is moving in darkness. But the darkness has a thrill in it: without any map , without any guide, you are moving into the unknown. Each step is a discovery, and it is not only a discovery of the outside world. Simultaneously, something is discovered in you also. Each discovery is an inner discovery...Go on your own. Move into the vast, into the infinite and learn to trust it. Leave yourself in the hands of life. The man who trusts, the man who is thrilled even at the gate of death -- he can give a lion's roar." ~Osho
