* Post 2 in a 30-day experiment
focused on magnetizing essence! *
If this were a criminal court, the question, “Why?” would be considered your motive.
This isn’t a criminal court, but it’s still a great question to ask and answer in a bigger context: Life. In LIFE, why do you do what you do? What’s your life’s motive? What drives you to spend your time and vitality (your very greatest resources) the way you do?
I know that asking this — investigating what exactly fuels our life — is a question both of privilege and provocation. And still I ask.
Why? Why do you keep showing up to do that repetitive thing? Is it because consistency is the mark of “maturity”? Is it because predictable rhythm has really, deeply, vibrantly brought you so much joy, that you just must do it again. For the trillionth time. Because you’re honestly not bored-to-tears with the mundane monotony of being so practical?
I suspect there’s more to this game.
I believe we each have a special ray of beauty and genius to express, and I’m certain that Grand Reason surpasses corporate ladders, 401Ks, and other tokens of physical security.
I know that most people’s motive has been stifled and stunted by the need to take care of earthly needs. Stomachs and minds need to be filled, and groceries and tuition are (as yet) not free. This puts glorious beings on treadmills that don’t travel. And, frankly, seeing glory spin its wheels in banal futility breaks my heart.
That is why I’m starting this experiment tomorrow, to create financial sovereignty so that how I spend my time and vitality is completely and joyfully aligned with my gifts, and the purest form of who I am. I want to run on star-dust. Not treadmills.
Let’s see what we can uncover and unleash in 30 days. Join me.
