Your Personal IOS
Individual Operating System (IOS)
Often we only know it’s time to change
When a force has built inside the heart
That leaves us uneasy as we are.
Perhaps the work we do has lost its soul
Or the love where we once belonged
Calls nothing alive in us anymore
We drift through this gray increasing nowhere
Until we stand before a threshold we know
We have to cross to come alive once more.
You live in a web of relationships. Like every human being on the planet, you are affected by countless variables that shape you who you are.
Yet you are one of a kind. Every conversation and life event is filtered through your own IOS which has been programmed and updated from the time before you were born.
With awareness and intention, you can rework stagnant, stalled or hurtful programming. You know those points in your life, where you can almost feel something trying to break through.
Listen to that voice that’s trying to break through.
With a strong enough desire to change, a strong, grounding intention and practices to support you, you will grow and transform in ways that will surprise both of us.
Know this. Honor this. Trust the process. Connect to something more expansive.
The word “courage” comes from the Latin word, “coeur” which means heart. David Whyte writes that “to be courageous, is not necessarily to go anywhere or do anything except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences.”
The time must be right.
Ask yourself, “Do I have the desire to step into change right now at this point in my life?”
Then listen carefully to your mind, heart and body. It will know.
I have walked this path. I continue to walk it.
It is worth every step.
May you have the courage to take the step
Into the unknown that beckons you,
Trust the richer life that awaits you there.
That you will lose nothing
But what has already died;
Feel the deeper knowing in you sure
Of all that is about to be born beyond
The pale frames where you stayed confined.
