"Why do you think the old stories tell of men who set out on great journeys to impress the gods? Because trying to impress people just isn't worth the time and effort."
Henry Rollins

Text of the day (paraphrased)  
Me:  How wonderful would it be to be happy without disappointing others...  
Him:  I don't care about disappointing others, I just want to be happy.

And then I read the above quote and am reminded, deeply, we need to focus on the greater tale.  We need to focus on the bigger picture and truer story.  Wealth is not found in money, just as beauty is not found in the physical...  these are illusions.  

Time to wear the reality ring and go.

"At the point where I'm trying to force something and it's not happening, and I'm getting frustrated with, say, writing a poem, I can go and pick up the brushes and start painting.  At the point where the painting seems to not be going anywhere, I go and pick up the guitar."  -  Joni Mitchell

Stay in action, let it out and let it go...  be free to the creative flows of life - that is what it all about (for me at least).

I could sit in the frustration of lack, or (and BETTER yet) run into the light of abundance.  I choose the latter.

"A person isn't who they are during the last conversation you had with them - they're who they've been throughout your whole relationship..."
Rainer Maria Rilke

One of the most touching and frightening things anyone has ever said to me is:  "You know me."

Where does one go with that thought?  Do we take this to mean in the whole, in the moment or in the future?

In looking at this inventory - who I am changes, though my core integrity remains...  but relationships change.  We must alway being taking constant inventory:  what was here, what is here and what needs to be here.  These are muscles we need to develop.

I started working out these muscles again a couple of weeks ago and am slowing getting back into the universal rhythm of it.  The effort is worth it.

There will be pain with growth - but every day it will be better.
