My word for the year 2017 was L I B E R A T I O N 🦄
It was a year of crossing over… one where the concepts of transition and change were delivered to me in a visceral and profound way, distilling years of theory into a single clear question:
Are you ready for the TRUTH?”
Standing at this long-awaited threshold… I thought I would jump to say yes… instead I was met with a heavy hesitation… AM I ready for this?
My experience of Liberation was like a surgical extraction- it cut deep and in my case there was no anesthesia to soften the process. (I chose to stop drinking this year )
It felt like I was falling through Dante’s Inferno burning layers upon layers of external impressions, stories, ideas and isms.
There were the obvious the freedoms:
Freedom from societies expectations
Freedom from my past
Freedom from the illusion…
But my real opportunity for Liberation was a Freedom from myself.
Freedom from my EGO.
My identity. Man, I cherished it… It had been (44) years in the making… and it was a big blow to see what a prison it had become.
The choice to let that go was a struggle, but the greatest gift I could possibly have given myself.
This liberation- one that my mind could never have conceived when I began my journey towards it so many years ago… has allowed me to experience real love… the overwhelmingly huge all-encompassing benevolent force that is EVERYTHING.
Sending so much L❤️VE to all my people for this coming year. Lets Bring It.
My word for 2018: CONVICTION.
