on boldness

Boldness allows us to push past limitations. A challenge to Saturn. Jovian expansion.

*

It gets us out of our comfort zone. It consonates with egregiousness, uncommonness, vibrating at a different rhythm than the norm–and thus is frequently difficult.

*

We carefully self-examine, seeing with child-like eyes where movements originate from love and where they originate from not-love.

*

The spirit of boldness is one thing; its manifestation is another.

*

Our default programming skews heavy toward self-centeredness, and thus away from selflessness. Heavy toward glory and power, and thus away from win-win for all involved.

*

The one intent on cultivating health-wholeness-integrity: s/he should have a realistic grasp on the work required.

*

The urge to achieve and the urge to contribute are often conflated; one should be careful to sift through the threads of motivation with clear eyes so that subtle layers of truth become known. The truth coming to light, one can work to cultivate that which uplifts, and part ways with that which downpulls.

*

sometimes boldness is yin, sometimes boldness is yang

*

sometimes boldness is pushing through, sometimes boldness is exercising restraint

*

sometimes boldness is putting oneself first, sometimes boldness is putting oneself last

*

the results of what we’ve created: study them carefully. do they consonate with collective upliftment? do they consonate with personal ambition? do they consonate with both on different levels?

*

having reflected on what we’ve created, we are always free to change.

*

Yesterday’s boldness is today’s complacency. Today’s boldness is tomorrow’s complacency. The work spirals onward. How’s win-win for all involved as a guiding principle?
