A re-Minder: That rough, less-traveled road-- that's where the Magic happens.

The road into the light.jpg

Some call it following your heart or finding you bliss. Others, call it living your dream. Whatever you call it, a remarkable thing happens when you take the plunge and follow that voice deep within. What once seemed ridiculously unacceptable and all but impossible becomes an incandescent road of magical syncronicities, manifestations, and the downright miraculous.

And it is on this road that great Great Stories are born!

We live in an age where the demands of society, culture and religion simply do not en-courage following the call of one’s heart. These tethers are so strong that many go their entire lives without doing what they would really love. The dreams of a child are so easily squelched by the reprimands adult world. Soul-deep passions are forgotten and discarded. The conventions, the apparent security and the morals of our world tell us that we must follow the path of our parents, the ways of our religion, the accepted careers of our community.

Life is so much grander than this!

Many of us know. The chains are shattered, the mind-forged manacles cast aside, we have turned off the bumpy road, we are no longer paddling against the current. We have embraced our passions, our loves and our dreams. We are doing what we love! We are cruising on a sleek paved road, and we are flowing with the river of life.

Its not easy of course. Far from it. Each day, each moment, is defined by not knowing what comes next. We often go against the wishes and council of peers and community. We must struggle with the weight of years of conditioning and antiquated morales. Even our simple joy stokes the ire of the system.

Yet, it is on this road the magic happens! It is precisely by walking into the unknown that Life really happens. It is in the unknown that the Universe has a chance to help us, to gift us, to conspire with all the might of the cosmos to help us realize our dreams.

Now, this is Living! Living what your dream, doing exactly what you love is not only grandly more rewarding– it is luminously Fun. The comfortable and secure become a shadow in comparison.

Are you on your rRoad? However did you ever think that the unbeleivable syncronicity you experienced the other day wasn’t just for you? Don't forget to share your great stories. We all need a re-minder once and a while. So many are poised to take the plunge to follow their dreams and heart. They stand hesitating at the crossroads. They just need a little inspiration. A little en-couragement.

Tell us your story!

I for one would love to hear it. Let me know here if you are telling great stories on Steemit so that I can follow you.

Personally, I am working on a post right now, a story, entitled: "How I fucked up my life and became stranded in a remote indigenous village for four years". Of course, it was actually the best thing that ever happened to me.

Can you imagine a world in which everyone is doing exactly what they love?
