The Courage to Envision

Courageous people are true visionaries. They commit to something beyond themselves, leaving fear and that which is comfortable behind. They surrender to a moment or a calling beyond their doubt, free falling into the hope of a potential. We have stunning examples throughout history: Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, the civilian in Tiananmen Square, Nelson Mandela, and Aung San Suu Kyi to name a few. They were willing to risk what was probable in order to give birth the existence of a possible. Wishing a different result implies we must be willing to let go of that which is familiar in order to seed that which is unknown. We all enjoy sharing the gravity bound stories of our past with others, which never cease to inspire empathy, as they are filled with tempestuousness and intrigue. However, the retelling of these wounded tales deeply roots us to that which has been and distances us from what is becoming in our selves and our lives. Why do we share these old tales of abuse, violation, grief, hurt and victimization? The constant recounting is just our way of trying to solve and understand what happened to us; however, the telling is to the outside world. Talking is an outward action, where as healing happens within. By repeating these stories, we are not healing. We are only igniting our ego, which seems to be more comfortable finding separation than unity. . Who are you without your stories? The willingness to acknowledge and witness what has happened allows us to take those first awkward steps toward healing. By freeing yourself from the confines of the past, you allow yourself to experience true liberation. It places you solidly in the moment of your life, in your present, which is where the point of all possibility exists. There we become the creators and architects of our lives and of this world, and join the courageousness of the aforementioned heroes. I challenge you to see how deeply you can surrender and detach from the winters of your discontents and step solidly into this glorious spring. You are constantly becoming, but clinging to the stories of the wounded ego disallows you to bloom. Your Soul is comprised of pure possibility. By having the courage to envision yourself differently, you contribute to the greater healing of our planet. As Margaret Shepherd said, “Sometimes the only available transportation is a leap of faith.”
