One love at a time. That's what I taught Rumi. “Just one love at a time, Rumi.”
What do I love today? Am I willing to devote my god/goddess self to creating that, to nurturing that, to honoring that? Are you? Do you think like this?
Every day is new. Every thought can be new. But are we willing to take it to the next level? Are we willing to make it our art? Are we willing to devote? And if we're willing to devote, then we're going to take energy from our ability to live, to create something we love. Are we willing to do that? Because that's the only reason we're here.
If you think that you're going to save something up, and some bolt of lightning from somewhere is going to magically... no. It's going to come to you the way it always comes to you, so that you can make a choice. And then you realize, I am something that I haven't believed I am! Something is communicating with me, something's telling me things, it's giving me pictures, inspirations, and it’s pulling me. I can feel it; it's pulling it right out of me!
And there's a part of me that's saying, "You can't leave! You can't do this! What about me?"
And then this light turns us around and we face the apparition and we say, "What about you? It's always been about you, hasn't it? As long as I have inhabited this body it's always been about you. And now it's about me, just me. And I'm going to forgive, and I‘m going to extend my soul kindness, and I'm going to allow you to work with me. And we are going places. I'm going to take you places you couldn't believe! And there's no one that can stand in our way, and I'm going to prove that to you."
"Well, I don't know if I'm going to like—"
“It’s now what you think you may like or dislike. It’s simply what I’m about to do."
“And what is that?”
“Change life. I’m going to change it all. I’m going to do whatever it is I’ve always wanted to do and I wasn’t able to, but I am.”
And then all we have to do is do it. Once we understand that, it’s a different life. I understood that in my longing to meet Rumi, I was willing to give everything up, and I did; and I was prepared to invest, and I did; to commit, and I did; to devote, and I did. And not to fear, not fear any change, but to follow my heart, my soul, and I did. And you will too.
