Comfortable in the nothingness
I was reading a book by Michael Neill the other day - unsure if it was Supercoach, Creating the Impossible, or The Inside Out Revolution (helpful, I know... :) ) and he wrote something along the lines of, "Hang out in nothing and notice that you're still okay, and you'll see that you're already free."
I sat with that a moment and let that sink in.
Spend time with nothing. No thoughts of expectations, finances, doubts, worries, fears, shame, excitement, responsibility, love, etc.. Sit in the nothingness and realise that you're okay even without "it all." And with that knowledge you see that you're already free.
And I know for many of us entrepreneurs, freedom is one of the top reasons why we started our businesses. We want freedom of time. Freedom of choice. Financial freedom. Freedom of location.
Yet, all this freedom comes at the back-end of something external. Something to reach for. Work towards. Something earned.
Yet, when we sit in our mental nothingness and realise that we're already free, we can take this energy of yearning for freedom and apply it to creating more of what we love.
Doesn't that seem divine? What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
With grace, grit, and gumption,
