Bold steps

“It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act. There are two aspects to action. One is to overcome the distortions and afflictions of your own mind … The other is more social, more public. When something needs to be done in the world to rectify the wrongs, if one is really concerned with benefiting others, one needs to be engaged, involved.” Dali Lama, ‘The path to tranquility’

Perhaps your path is not clear and you have been wandering about searching for the true you. Work isn’t doing it for you; in fact nothing in the current moment feels strong and compelling as it should. There is no magnetic pull to some mysterious goal; there is no pull at all.

Change the script you are reading from. That’s right, change the script. Rewrite the play. Play a bigger part, make your voice heard. Come alive. Become who you were truly meant to be.

What risks are you willing to take to rewrite your personal life script?

What bold steps can you take today?
