The Universe Helps

"I have found that you have only to take that one step towards the gods, and they will then take ten steps toward you. That step, the heroic first step of the journey, is out of, or over the edge of, your boundaries, and it often must be taken before you know that you will be supported."Joseph Campbell

My French Muse Sophie has much experience with life lessons....her life journey has been strewn with learning experiences, small and large and huge...she has taken many heroic first steps without support, a safety net, or even a firm plan...she just trusted that it was the right thing to do...

You can see the wisdom of the lessons learned written on her face...she has known, she has grown, she is wise...she knows for sure that, if you head in the direction you feel is right for you, even if it is impossible or you don't know if you can, the universe helps...

And the universe is screaming at me this week...I have been asking, waiting for some sign or hint to what I need to do next...it offered up that tiny push in Somerset Studio...which has become a giant jolt I needed for me, without knowing the outcome, to step out and put my art into the world...

I have to be willing to leap blindly forward, scared out of my wits, to move in the direction of my dream...making a living with my small art...I have to be willing to jump into muddy waters, get wet and dirty, and let the current take me where it may...let the miracles that lie within me will pour forth...unafraid to grab what is within my grasp...I must believe, as I float or swim or flounder along, that the way to proceed will become apparent...

Today's aMUSEment - Leap into the waters of your life...stop preparing for everything...stop waiting for the right moment...enough training...enough money...the sky to fall...just trust the universe to help...

Thank you for visiting my blog. I don't know, but the connection is strong in this universe of mine and you are one to whom the connection flows.. your words and pictures. Soulful, gentle, peaceful.. Serenity as you stand at your edge of the ocean..
Find peace, Kai . :)

Dear Cre8tive rebecca,
If you have a hunch say "YES", take action, then fasten your safety belt and get ready for the journey it usually isn't the original journey but you will know where to go next! Isn't it exciting?
Thanks for making my Birthday happy!

YOU GO GIRL!!

It is wonderful to find kindred spirits. I found so few in my former life in corporate America. I too took the big leap and left my well paid career and life on the treadmill to follow my bliss less than a year ago. I can tell you that I certainly have been on the Hero's path and what an adventure! Stop by to check it out if you get a chance. I love to connect with like minded heroes.
