To Live The Dream, Bring Your Dream To Life

Tao of Yummi, Sutra 23, Microsutra 2/6

What is authentic value? Why is authentic value indispensable? If you do what you do in order to please others, will you realize the authentic value that is yours’ to give?

Creating authentic value isn’t about pleasing others. It’s about pleasing yourSelf to produce the value that is yours’ to give. You create authentic value because it is what you do and it is the right thing to do. You are here to help, which is different than being here to please. When you create authentic value it is for the good of all.

Did Miles Davis aim to please others with his music? Do you think that Hemingway wrote to please someone other than himSelf? Their commitment to please themSelves showed the rest of us what was possible.

Each choice you make sends you into the current moment. The current moment is all there is — the Truth. This is where your authentic Self resides. Not in some memory of the past. Not in some expectation for the future. This is where you discern authentic value.

Attach to an expectation of pleasing others and you will be carried away from the current moment. Choose living into purpose to face your opportunities. Be mindful in the moment to open to the delightful and unexpected: inspiration, creativity and love. Commit to authentic value creation. To live the dream, bring your dream to life.
