Follow Your Soul’s Urging. Recently, in a meeting about her LA events, I asked Marianne Williamson how do you dance between making it happen, the law of attraction and radical acceptance of what IS?
She said: “You realize it’s not going to get all fixed in my lifetime. When you’re young, you think we’re going to fix it, we’re going to change it. And then you start seeing how deep the stuff is. As you realize, it’s not going to happen in my lifetime and you get kind of Buddhist about it- that your karma is about whether you showed up or not rather than whether you accomplish It’s about whether on the last day of your life, you can say, well, at least I contributed in whatever way I could.
High engagement, low attachment to results-ahhh there’s the master’s dance. Perhaps we simply ask, how and whom may I serve in this moment? As Michael Hayes says, “Lord, I’ve lived all these lifetimes for me. This one I’ll live for you.” How may we take the pressure off of ourselves and simply drop in and follow our soul’s urging just in this moment ?
