On Sundays, I like to go deep within. Back to the basics. Just be still and listen to my soul. This Martha Graham quote is probably the most powerful of all messages for me. It’s one of the reasons I left the corporate world and the life I knew, to follow my dreams. It’s actually an abbreviated version of the full quote from Martha Graham and I think it’s even more powerful when you read the complete version:
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open...”
Do you feel like you know the path you are meant to walk and the gifts you are here to share? You have them and trust me, if you tap into them you can live a life beyond your wildest dreams. You are not just here to tackle a to do list and get through the day in survival mode. If that is how you are feeling, it’s because you are out of alignment with your purpose. Don’t judge yourself or the situation, simply go within and ask yourself in what way you could recenter and reset your life.
Maybe it’s by creating a bit more space to do that one thing that you love but had been putting aside because you perceived it as less important than all the tasks on your daily list. If you aren’t sure, just give yourself some time to figure it out. Not by overthinking but rather by setting an intention on a daily basis to find out which decisions could bring you to a more fulfilled state. You will see, the answers will come in various forms. You just have to be present and keep your eyes opened for the signs. Have a lovely Sunday my dears.
