The paradox of being an evolving human is that you crave security, while coming alive with risk. It is in your DNA ‘to boldly go where no man has gone before.' The species would not have survived if the yearning to experience more were not firmly entrenched at the cellular level.
Yet ‘being more' requires the letting go of what you know, of who you have been until this moment. It demands the relinquishing of safety nets. It begs to break the rules. And still you want to hear a soothing voice that guarantees you will remain intact. This tightrope of trust must be navigated to fully engage life and activate your burgeoning potential.
Relentless trust is accessed from your deep knowing, not your intellect. The inner resources nourish and sustain you as you dive beyond the edge of experience. However, in order to ‘know' with any kind of certainty you must connect to your sensing and feeling nature. How can you do that if you are unwilling to surrender what you have acquired intellectually? The magic, the discovery, the miracles are never birthed from the intellect, they arise outside of the framework of what you ‘know.'
Perhaps this quandary is a result of the disconnection from your true essence. Early on an experience may have occurred that propelled you into self preservation separation. Maybe this capacity to feel and sense immensely was a burden and not a blessing. Without even realizing it, little by little, you hardened your heart , buried your brilliance and disconnected from your true power source until one day you discovered there was nobody home!
The time is now to come home to your creative essence, your highly aware nature, your superconnective being. Open completely and partner with life.

Love comes with a knife,
not some shy question.
And not with fears for its reputation!
Love is a madman working his wild schemes,
tearing off his clothes, running through the mountains,
drinking poison and quietly choosing annihilation.
You've been walking the ocean's edge,
holding up your robes to keep them dry.
You must dive naked under, and deeper under,
a thousand times deeper and deeper under.
Love flows down, love flows down.
The ground submits to the sky and
suffers what comes down, love flows.
Tell me, is the earth worse for giving in like that?
Don't put blankets over the drum.
