Isn’t that just perfect? I found it on Facebook at The Abundance Course.
It expresses so simply something I believe deeply.
I admire those who want to help others, change the world, make a difference. I fully respect the will, the intent, the desire. But the truth is, the best way to make a difference in the world is to simply come alive, do what you love to do, be who you are, and be the best you possible. Share that “you” with others.
How many of us simply move through the days on automatic pilot, half asleep?
What does it really mean to Come Alive?
No one can tell you. There are no instruction manuals. But I do know one thing. You can’t Come Alive while drifting through on automatic pilot. You have to take the controls in your own hands and move forward. It doesn’t matter what direction you take. You can follow signposts if you prefer, or you can take alternate routes, whatever works best for you.
It really doesn’t matter where you go, or how you get there. As long as you take You with you. Do what you love, and love what you are doing.
And when you come alive, so do those around you. It’s inevitable. Maybe not everyone, some people simply aren’t able to wake up. But I believe that when we allow ourselves to be fully present, that sense of Presence will often call to others, and bring them to us. Like a magnet. There is nothing more exciting than being around someone who has truly come alive.
But the best way to be around that Presence of someone who has Come Alive, is to simply come alive yourself.
Me? Well, when you reach a certain age, automatic pilot can be comforting. But it’s still possible to come alive even on automatic pilot. Appreciating the moment, being aware of where you are, what you are doing, even the smallest routine can be special if you pay attention.
Coming alive doesn’t have to be loud or dramatic, it doesn’t have to make a big splash. Sometimes even the tiniest ripple can go on for miles.
Be alive, be well, and be the best You you can be.
