The making of our movie
Many of us live our lives as if we’re the directors of a movie.
We envision a grand adventure filled with epic loves, harrowing travels, and treasures to be discovered.
And this is good. This is true. This is indeed life.
But what we don’t realize, is that we are not responsible for writing, directing or producing the film.
We are simply the actors.
As hard as we may try to control the plot and the direction of the film, of our life, the more mired in ordinary footage and storylines the endeavor gets, going from a work of art to an unoriginal output.
But when we let go, give up trying to direct our lives, give up trying to fashion our appearances and experiences to a script we’ve created or heard so many times we’ve made it our own, the more our real and true life starts to take shape.
A story so original that it hasn’t been written before.
A story filled with epic loves and harrowing adventures that will inspire generations to come just as the stories that have inspired us.
However, if we do not let go and allow these new stories to unfold, we will keep manifesting the old stories, dressing them up, and trying to package and sell them as new.
And thus, we will keep feeding the same outcomes that have plagued generations before.
Desires to be the same, live the same, at the expense of evolution, creativity and individuality.
So I ask you to take a moment to think before you step in to direct the next scene.
Is this scene already written, unchanging in content and plot?
Or is this scene open to interpretation?
Will you step back and allow it to unfold in whatever way it’s meant to? No directing, no scripting, no plan.
Now that, that decision is yours to make.
